My name is Lee and I’m a freelance illustrator and designer, living and working in Israel.

I graduated from the Academic Institute of Technology, Holon in 2002 with a B.Sc.T.E. in Visual 

Communications.

 

After graduating, (2002 - 2009) I worked for Israel’s leading TV companies, (Channel 10, Reshet, Keshet, Playground) designing graphic screens for promos and planning animation. I also acquired knowledge and experience in package design and branding, working for HOT Cable Company’s entertainment channel.

 

In 2009, i worked for Haaretz Newspaper as Director of infographics,
I designed the infographic language 
for the News desk, planned and
facilitated the daily and weekly infographics as head 
of the
newspaper’s News desk infographic dept.

 

Two years later (2011), I moved on to work in the
newspaper’s digital department, defining  
and customizing the newspaper’s
infographic language for the digital iPad edition.

 

During my time at Haaretz I also illustrated four children’s books, weekly columns at Haaretz editorials, wrote and illustrated 133 episodes of an original weekly comic strip for Yedioth Achronot newspaper.

In the past two years (2014 - 2016) I worked as a designer in an internet media company, designing the company's website and all of its marketing materials, including: landing pages, banners, mailers, google and facebook ads. I also designed logos and labels for the company's products and created graphics and animation for the company's product promotion films.

 

Nowadays my efforts are concentrated on freelance work.

 

I'm influenced by everything that my eyes capture.

I love my work and working with other people inspires me.
