despite living in Tel Aviv for a few years already, there are only handful of Israeli designers that I’m very familiar with. This is something that I’d like to change over this year since there is much talent and innovation to discover here. Today I’d like  to share with you the work of Ron Naden, who combines several things that I love – silkscreen printing, color and Tel Aviv inspired design.

Ron is a 29 year old illustrator and animation art director living in Tel Aviv and here is a sample from his collection that was created for the occasion of Israel’s 61st independence. The main theme for this years’ celebrations was Tel Aviv’s 100th anniversary. One of the styles used is a silkscreen printing technique, “a printing method that’s as old as time, 2011 style” as he puts it. Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday and that these posters will inspire you to come to visit.

Tel Aviv’s architectural monuments get a new graphic look in a limited edition series.

Combining a century-old typography with a minimalist linear graphics creates a fresh, interesting look.

Also, Ron created a series of play-bottoms of musicians that inspired him, as his way of saying thank you.

Pet Shop Boys

And here are The PlayButtons musicians turned retro in these prints, that take part in a screen prints exhibition in Tel Aviv.
