Rutu Modan

Product & Object Design

“My visual storytelling is not only an artistic choice, but also an expression of a personal worldview that continues to evolve through my comics stories, while inspiring my other professional pursuits—the illustration of children's books and teaching. I aim to explore new ways of expression, to enhance clarity and accuracy, and to take active responsibility for the evolution of this field and its audience.”
