  • PRODUCT・UX・UI

Although I was born in Israel, I moved to Amsterdam (the Netherlands) before I celebrated my first birthday. There I grew up until I moved back to Israel when I turned 21. My surname, Kunst, means 'Art' in Dutch so at an early age I came to the sad conclusion that I could not, unlike my friends, become a policeman or fireman (or Batman for that matter). Therefore, I studied graphic design and after having worked as the main store designer in the “Tower Records” branch in Tel Aviv, I started working in the field of internet in 1998.

With all the amazing developments that took place during that time, I very soon got involved in many aspects of product and project development including, but not limited to: product definition, user experience, UI design, and front-end development. For almost two decades I have produced numerous products and websites for a wide variety of companies in Israel and abroad. I have defined products and their user experience from scratch, designed intuitive user interfaces and worked closely with developers using the latest technologies. During the last 2 decades I have mostly worked in start-up companies, creating products for consumers and enterprises. I was a founding member in a pioneering start-up in the field of social casual gaming. More recently I worked in the field of secured file sharing and lead the UX for a social experience-sharing product.

As an entrepreneur, I've realized some ideas as well over the years. My latest adventure, five years ago, was the creation of several game concepts and the development of a fun and educational game for iOS devices. In my spare time I like to read, draw and paint, write, watch movies and listen to music.
