TURNING COMPLEX IDEAS INTO SIMPLE PRODUCTS
I've been working in the field of digital products for over 2 decades. During that time I've transformed many complex ideas and concepts into simple and easy-to-use products with intuitive user interfaces and a great user experience.
SOME OF MY WORK
Even though 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.
Very soon I got involved in many aspects of product development including, but not limited to: product definition, user experience, UI design, information architecture, and front-end development. For over 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.
As an entrepreneur, I've developed several products and games. Most recently I co-founded a company that redefined the relationship between coffee shops and so called 'laptop hobos'.
