Senior Designer, NYC

Dalit is a multidisciplinary designer and creative technologist hailing from Tel Aviv and currently based in Brooklyn.

She has an extensive background in design and user experience and likes to obsess over nuances in human behavior and problem solving. Dalit has worked with clients such as This American Life, littleBits, CreativeMornings and the Magnum Foundation, and has designed over 25 mobile apps (and counting).

She holds a BDes with honors from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design Jerusalem and received President’s List recognition at Pratt while on a student exchange. After graduating from Bezalel, Dalit founded and directed her own design studio in Tel Aviv that specialized in User Experience and User Interface design for emerging startup companies worldwide.

Dalit continued her studies with a Masters degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU, where she received Google’s Experiments in Storytelling grant. Dalit’s thesis work at ITP centered around retelling stories found in the archives of The New York Public Library through intimate physiodigital experiences. The project is currently taking shape to become a physical display at The New York Public Library.

Dalit is adjunct faculty at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) where she teaches Design and Authoring for Interactive Media and has lead several workshops in New York and Tel Aviv. Her insatiable curiosity drives her love for research, and she is passionate about making memorable and meaningful experiences that bring people together.

When she’s not in the studio you can probably find her climbing a tree in Prospect Park.
