Design is the fastest form of communication. It's a language that reaches the mind in the fastest form of speed in the universe.
Unlike other languages, the consumer doesn't have to be proficient in the language in order to understand it, nevertheless, the designer shall master the language very cleverly in order to communicate it.
Some decorations can escort this language, however, they can be very flattering as well as pretty confusing when used wrongly.
This language can be presented in a wide range of accents and dialects. Unexplainably one would seem crystal clear and attractive by a certain audience and unrelatable and repulsive by another.

My father has been interested in video production back in the days when the technology was in its infancy, he worked all around the world developing advanced tools on the first graphic computers.

I grew up in his office and officially have dealt with video making since the age of 13. When I grew up I'd spent 2 years in the video department of Tel Aviv University.
There I focused on cinematography and editing. over those years I've gained knowledge in set production, directing, cinematography, editing, CG animation, colour grading, and soundtrack production.
Along with that at the age of 15, I started specialising in motion graphic and CG animation, I've gained my knowledge animating commercial content besides artistic and digital graphic.

Freelance

Designer

I began my journey in design due to my native interest in natural and artificial visual creations. I started my first internship at the age of 16 alongside the professional designer Ori Succary at his design agency in Tel Aviv, later on, I was taken by him to Bezalel academy of arts in Jerusalem and spent there 2 semesters, where I acquired my experience in a wide variety of theoretical and practical aspects of design.
Ever since I've dealt with defining my surroundings through design, from rebranding my high school's visual identity at the beginning of my way, to creating a visual language for an exhibition part of the official design week of Vienna in 2018.
