so who are we?
We have met in 2014 with the magical Firenze, Italia as our background, when we were in different stages of our academic studies and career, the strong and natural connection between us, personally and professionally. Our relationship began with cultural discussions in museums and galleries along walks down the streets of our beloved and city.
Design and Art ideas were the backbone on which we founded our next natural step of founding a new joined studio. After a few years of working in Italy, we moved to the Netherlands in search for modern inspirations and influences, where we were lucky enough to with local businesses and create new brands as well as work with some big established ones.
Many of our experiences and influences of the Dutch design and culture are visible today in our perceptions and identity of our studio.
Since then we create together with strong beliefs in freedom and liberty that is so very important to the creative process. The need for inspiration and the will to keep learning and developing ourselves keep us very open to our surroundings as well as keep changing it by us or just the natural progression. This strong force is what allows us to keep involved and what makes our creation unique and different.
From my childhood, I was looking at the world from an artistic and design-aware point of view from the basic understanding that creativity is my way to express myself and communicate with the world around me. I was drawn to many disciplines under the wide umbrella of Art and Design, which pushed me into theoretical studies and practice in different aspects of design. After my service as a Graphic Designer in IDF, I have followed my dream and moved to Italy to complete my B.A. in industrial design at the Florence University.
In addition to our joined studio, Design Gezund, I have opened an Etsy shop carrying the same name, in which I share and sell my digital art that combines my love and passion for art and interior design, my pieces are created in a contemporary and unique style that expression my perception and personal view in design.
Lately, I have worked among others on branding projects for events and conferences in Israel and Europe, I was the chief designer and head of the design department in a few High-Tech companies that specialized in digital interfaces. In these days, side by our studio work, I'm designing and silversmithing my version of modern jewelry. In addition, I have a digital course in design fundamentals and Adobe software at the digital marketing academy.
I'm Tal I. Levy, I'm working and developing in different filed of design for more than two decades. In the big and wide field of design, I had different and vast positions, from the beginning of my career as a Graphic Designer to the world of 3D animation where I was a partner and creative director in two animation production companies. After I completed my B.A. In interior design in Shenkar I led projects of space design in the personal and commercial sectors.
In 2013 I moved to Italy to open a design studio to be able to take part in interesting projects for local and abroad clients. Among that work, I completed two academic degrees and was a teaching assistant and escorted graduation project in the architecture department of Florence university. These days I am teaching a graphic design course in the UX UI track at Acre College.
However I take advantage of every project to experiment in other areas such as developing fonts for use in a logo or branding process, each collaboration yields special and unique results.
From art director and design props for film and television to book illustrations.
We love what we do and believe in the power of appearance and its value, communication-wise as well as its aesthetics. The communication with a brand starts for the very first time the client exposure to the brand and continues by entering the brand's world, rather it will be a digital or a physical location. Therefore we would like to escort every project in any way possible, to make sure the image is kept.
