our designers

Ziv Yaacobi (Covo) :

By profession, I am an Industrial Designer with a degree from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. I come from 4 generations of bookbinders, and I remember numerous summers spent working alongside my father at his book-binding factory. In fact, I can even still remember the smell of the glue he used to bind the books. For the past 20 years, I have been the co-owner of Tamooz - a leading marketing communications agency. Recently, I decided to reawaken my passion for pens, papers and desk accessories, and open Pulp – my vision of a place for paper lovers and designers to come together to create goodies for your workspace.

Adam Sessler:

I am a Graphic Designer with a degree in Communication Design from the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, Israel. Despite living in a digital world, I find myself still drawn to spending time in printing workshops than to sitting in front of my Mac. I love creating new typography and experimenting by playing around with traditional printing techniques. When Ziv invited me to design the first Pulp notebook line, I immediately agreed. I created the line using a technique called “over-print”. The inspiration for the design came from production rejects and wasted sheets of paper that were left-over from calibrating the printing machine.

Anna zigan :

A graphic designer, UX and a training big thinker.
I've graduated from the visual communication departement in "Bezalel" 
and since then bravely travelling through the wild life as an explorer.

Varied graphic thinking, cross platform experience and mind blowing visuals :) teach me to this day the power of the image, the message and the medium.

Ideas bring change, design makes them come to life, can't wait for what next!

Yanek Iontef

Born in the USSR, Yanek Iontef moved to Israel at the age of 16 and studied graphic design at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. He later worked as a graphic designer in both London and Tel Aviv. Since 1995 he has been teaching typography and type design at the Bezalel Academy. He currently works in Tel Aviv as a designer specializing in type design, corporate identity, and editorial design. Now too an award-winning type designer, he also has his own type foundry, producing a range of Latin and fonts.

Yanek’s cartonnage project to Pulp was inspired by a longtime ambition of having digital types that looks "imperfect" (distressed?) a bit like an old stamp. The cartonnage project was also inspired from the old-school packaging world of pictograms. The result: Pulp’s notebook covers.

Tamir Shefer : http://www.tamirshefer.com

Tamir Shefer was born in San Francisco, California in l963. In l989 he received the degree, Bachelor of Arts in Industrial Design from the Bezalel Academy. He currently divides his time between painting, working on commercial multimedia projects, and as the Head of the Design Communication Department at the Technological Institute of Holon in Israel. Tamirs' art has been exhibited in various galleries and museums throughout Israel, several of his paintings having been commissioned projects, and others having been purchased by prominent art collectors. He has had his illustrations published in several National newspapers such as the "Village Voice" in New York, the "San Diego Union Tribune" and the "San Francisco Bay Guardian."

Tamir does not explain the hidden meaning of his art work.  He tries to provoke the spectator by raising questions, and does this by integrating familiar symbols into his work. Tamir uses mixed media in his work and believes that today’s society is busy and overcrowded and is reflected in his art in the form of density, color, and number of images.

Shira Nochumsohn

Nochumsohn studied Visual Communications at Shenkar College and majored in Illustration. “During the day I work as an illustrator and designer at Turnowsky, while in the evenings I illustrate children's books. Both my illustration styles originate from two different techniques. The one style is originally driven from the vibrant colours of gouache paints, while the other style is heavily influenced by black and white block printing.

The thing both style have in common is my desire for strong, contrast and bold images.

Rubi Bakal

part of a series of paintings made from dust on canvas- 2012-2015.each painting is constructed by laying several layers of hand cut stencils and objects on the canvas surface, letting it accumulate dust.  each painting is left at the place that the image is taken from ,and maintained through a period of several months with different layers of stencils, resulting a process resembling photographic exposure.  at the end of the process the image emerges, resulting a site-specific result of tone, texture and color of the sites residues.
