Emunah Winer—designer and creative director

Name: Emunah Winer

Profession: Designer and creative director

Location: Israel

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...

Notebook:

Blank. Lines get in the way. I don’t sketch but I do take lots of notes.

Colours:

Muted tones mixed with primary colours.

Era:

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:

Brian Collins.

Fonts:

Inter. Free, clean, uncomplicated. I use it for all agency collateral.

Any reverse italics. GT Planar in particular.

Montserrat.

Organisational method:

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.

Trusted advisor:

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.
