We’re pleased to present you the work of Yael Shinkar, an Infographic designer based in Israel and currently working for a financial newspaper circulated on weekends called “The Markerweek” that covers local and global economic news.

“I graduated 3 years ago from HIT college that is situated in Holon, Israel, with a Bachelor of Design degree, majoring in visual communications. During my studies I began working as an Infographic designer at “Ha’aretz Daily“, one of the leading newspapers in Israel. After graduating I worked as a graphic designer at several places, in a major advertising agency, in different graphic design studios, as a freelance designer, but at the end of that initial journey I found myself back as an infographic designer for “The Marker”, a daily financial newspaper, and after a couple of months started designing for the weekend newspaper, which has given me much more time to be creative and find a unique style and entertain other types of artistic projects.

I try to insert humor, color and accessibility as much as possible, so that the readers can enjoy the information presented to them, and as a bonus get a little giggle as well.”
