Dan Reisinger was born in 1934 in Kanjiža, Yugoslavia (now Serbia) and in 1949 emigrated to the newly founded state of Israel. He studied painting, sculpture and design at the Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem, graduating with distinction. He studied 3D design and stage design at the Central School of Art in London. After finishing his studies, he worked in advertising and designed posters and publications for a variety of clients. In 1958 his poster for the Brussels Expo won first prize. When roughly a decade later he founded his own studio, his field of work expanded to include logos, corporate identities, environmental design and calendars, while at the same time he also dedicated himself to painting. For his contribution to Israeli design - he is known among other things for designing the corporate identity of Israeli national airline El Al - he won the 1998 Israel Prize, the state's highest award for excellence.
He has exhibited at the most important museums and other institutions around the whole world and his posters are included in the majority of international collections. He still dedicates himself to painting and design today, and frequently takes part in international events as a jury member and lecturer. He is a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale and the New York Art Directors Club, an honorary professor at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, and an honorary member of the Russian Academy of Design, the committee of the International Biennale of Graphic Design Brno, and the Israel Designers Association.
