For this Ketubah we wanted to strip away all the unnecessary decoration and ornamentation of traditional Ketubot, while still making a strong statement that would communicate the essence of the marriage contract’s meaning. By combining attractive typesetting with the English word love, simply written in large letters, we have created a modern, minimalist design that elegantly captures a couple’s feelings.
Ketubah Artist Bio
Baruch Sienna is a Jewish digital artist with a love of letters and languages. He began his artistic career as a calligrapher, creating handmade, one of a kind Ketubot. After becoming interested in using digital technology for design, he was one of the first people to create Hebrew fonts on the original Macintosh computer and now designs and typesets Hebrew and English books and prayerbooks, graphic posters, and logos. Baruch is the founder of Work of Heart prayerbooks and alephtechnology.com. Returning to ketubah design is an opportunity for Baruch to utilize his background as a designer and Jewish educator to create fresh approaches to the traditional marriage contract.
