Israeli-born Noma Bar studied graphic design and typography at the Jerusalem Academy of Art& Design before moving to London in 2001. Since his first national magazine commission for Time Out in 2003, he has published over 1000 illustrations for magazines and books globally, including upwards of 60 front covers and won numerous awards worldwide.
Bar loves to tell visual stories. With a deft touch he can imbue simple graphic forms with political and social commentary, or manipulate everyday icons to create witty, double- take images that make you look once, twice, three times. With his bold use of colours, shapes and pared down iconography, Bar captures the spirit of a person or the heart of an issue with arresting clarity and humour and his instantly recognizable style has established him as one of the world’s most in-demand illustrators.
His clients include: The New York Times, The Guardian, GQ, Esquire, Wallpaper*,Time Magazine, IBM, Sony, Nike, Google, The V&A and more.
