hello (at) shira-inbar (dot) me


I’m an independent graphic designer, educator, and art director with an edge of motion graphics, currently making work in the fields of entertainment, editorial design, immersive theatre, image-making, and brand experience. I’m  most excited about work that’s expressive, funny,  weird, and captivating, in which design, type, and motion play an active role of content formation.

Some of the people and places I’ve had the pleasure of working with (and still do) are Pentagram Design with team Emily Oberman, MTV News with Richard Turley; attempting to make cable television relevant again for teens via interstitials, GIFs, broadcast takeovers, and general randomness, Medium, Squarespace, AIGA Eye on Design, GIPHY, M·A·C Cosmetics, Nike, Adobe, Housing Works Inc., PS New York, The FADER, Dark Igloo, and more. I also teach motion graphics at Parsons School of Design, and am a founding member of Little Cinema, a series of immersive film screenings at House of Yes, Brooklyn.
