THE COOPER UNION
Jonathan is an image maker and motion designer. Born and raised in Tel Aviv, he is currently a senior studying graphic design. Jonathan believes in the power of non-stop creation: over the past year he challenged himself to create a poster everyday, and through this exercise he has learned to understand his intuitions and become more aware of his creative process. Most recently, he worked on an animated video for Rolling Stone, as well as several album covers and posters for underground night clubs. He feels that image-making is especially powerful in our current culture of constant visual stimulation, and would love to someday open his own design studio.
