Hey 👋
My name is Dan Moukatel BUT everybody calls me Dani Mou 🤘

I'm a Pattern designer, UX/UI Graphic designer & Trendsetter based in TLV.

I graduated in 2013 from the department of visual communication at the Shenkar College of Design.

My works mashing together Middle Eastern culture and tradition, mixed with pop culture, nature, and kitsch. I produce collages, installations, and patterns that send-up and celebrate Middle Eastern culture.

The one trend I hope will go away forever is minimalism 🙅‍♂️
for me, MORE IS MORE!

PERSPECTIVE CLOCKS

Package design for‭ "‬Perspective‭" ‬clocks

The Perspective series are five clocks composed of straight lines‭, ‬each demonstrating a different approach to the dimension of time‭.‬

The design of the Perspective Series focuses on the hands instead of the clock face‭, ‬creating shapes that give meaning to the movement itself‭. ‬

The hands are structures of straight white lines that rotate over a plain black face‭, ‬resembling a drawing study on a canvas‭. ‬Each face has a slightly different ending‭, ‬emphasizing its own character‭.‬

Using only the simplest form of straight lines and exploring the way they interact‭, ‬the appearance of the clocks varies from minimal to complex configuration‭.‬

The clocks‭' ‬design is reflected in their package design‭: ‬both in the clean geometric shapes it utilizes and the strong black and‭ ‬white coloring‭.‬

This project was conducted for Studio Ve‭, ‬Tel-Aviv‭.‬

בליין‭ ‬שעוני‭ ‬פרספקטיבה‭ ‬חמישה‭ ‬שעונים‭ ‬המורכבים‭ ‬מקווים‭ ‬ישרים‭, ‬כל‭ ‬שעון‭ ‬מבטא‭ ‬גישה‭ ‬אחרת‭ ‬לממד‭ ‬הזמן‭.‬

העיצוב‭ ‬של‭ ‬סדרת‭ ‬השעונים‭ ‬מתרכז‭ ‬במחוגים‭ ‬במקום‭ ‬בלוח‭ ‬השעון‭, ‬ויוצר‭ ‬בדרך‭ ‬זו‭ ‬צורות‭ ‬שנותנות‭ ‬משמעות‭ ‬לתנועה‭ ‬עצמה‭.‬ המחוגים‭ ‬הם‭ ‬מבנים‭ ‬קטנים‭ ‬של‭ ‬קווים‭ ‬לבנים‭ ‬המסתובבים‭ ‬על‭ ‬לוח‭ ‬שעון‭ ‬שחור‭ - ‬כעין‭ ‬סקיצה‭ ‬של‭ ‬ציור‭ ‬על‭ ‬קנבס‭. ‬לכל‭ ‬אחד‭ ‬מלוחות‭ ‬השעון‭ ‬יש‭ ‬שוליים‭ ‬הייחודיים‭ ‬לו‭ ‬במקצת‭, ‬וכך‭ ‬מודגש‭ ‬אופיו‭ ‬המיוחד‭. ‬ באמצעות‭ ‬שימוש‭ ‬בצורות‭ ‬הפשוטות‭ ‬ביותר‭ ‬של‭ ‬קווים‭ ‬ישירים‭ ‬וחקירת‭ ‬יחסי‭ ‬הגומלין‭ ‬ביניהם‭, ‬השעונים‭ ‬נעים‭ ‬כל‭ ‬העת‭ ‬בין‭ ‬קונפיגורציות‭ ‬פשוטות‭ ‬ומינימליות‭ ‬למורכבות‭.‬

עיצוב‭ ‬השעון‭ ‬משתקף‭ ‬גם‭ ‬בעיצוב‭ ‬האריזה‭ ‬שלו‭ - ‬בפשטות‭ ‬של‭ ‬הקווים‭ ‬הנקיים‭, ‬הדגש‭ ‬על‭ ‬צורות‭ ‬גיאומטריות‭ ‬וכמובן‭ ‬הצבעוניות‭ ‬הבולטת‭ ‬של‭ ‬השחור‭-‬לבן‭.‬‭‬
