Meet Our Designers: Lahav Halevy

by Anna Kopito | 09.12.14

Art makes ripples and waves – it was the very purpose of all of my art history classes to learn how significant a picture can be – how it can effect even the most untouchable and how it can make more of a statement than the greatest speech by the most revered political figure. Graphic designer and political activist Lahav Halevy will be selling some of his posters at our upcoming pop up and we couldn’t be prouder. Afterall, a picture speaks a thousand words and we’re sure that at least one of them will speak to you.
