Visualist speaks with top designers and creative directors to find out what essential tools they keep in their daily design toolkit.
Name: Emunah Winer
Profession: Designer and creative director
Emunah Winer is the co-founder of Nihilo, a branding agency specialising in blending visual and verbal design. We asked Emunah what tricks and tools make up her daily design toolkit...
Blank. Lines get in the way. I don’t sketch but I do take lots of notes.
Muted tones mixed with primary colours.
Unknown. The era I research and reference is directly related to whatever specific project I’m working on—I let that lead me.
Designer on speed dial:
Inter. Free, clean, uncomplicated. I use it for all agency collateral.
Any reverse italics. GT Planar in particular.
I use a combination of pen-on-paper and digital tools to keep on top of projects. However, sometimes I just let myself go with the flow.
I always like to ask my husband because he knows absolutely nothing about design! Sometimes we get stuck in our own design heads and having a “regular” point of view really helps.
