About Shira

Shira Levitt is an artist based in Jerusalem, Israel. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Yeshiva University in 2021.

Shira’s favorite thing about art is how the advancement of technology has impacted the ways in which people create. In addition to her logo and website design, Shira’s passion involves creating multimedia collages, using elements from her own photography as well as photoshopping and drawing in designs to create a multi-layered conceptual piece. She works using many mediums and enjoys creating physical pieces as well as digital artwork. Shira’s main goal in creating art is taking the normal, everyday elements of life and manipulating them in order to change the perspective of the viewer.

Shira’s diverse skillset allows her to implement multiple elements to establish a story in her designs. She utilizes color and pattern in her designs to create a more visually appealing product, and her unique eye for spatial design and typography allows her to produce a fully-formed, thought-out, and detail-oriented concept.
