Jonathan Lax (also known as YONIL) is an illustrator and a graphic designer born 1982 in Holon, Israel. He graduated with honors from the Department of Visual Communication at the Holon Institute of Technology H.I.T. Currently he's working freelance and enjoying every second of it.
About Jonathan's main influences he mentions urbanism, music posters, album covers and street arts. I believe that the essence of every artwork is its basic idea, so I would usually devote a great deal of time for an idea to emerge.

Peep is an experimental magazine I designed as a school project. 99% of the materials in the magazine aren’t mine, meaning the photos and editorials were all taken and written by pros, while it was my job to design the whole layout for the mag. I used colors to distinguish one article from the other, and also between the photographs.
