Shaul moved to the United States and joined Johns Hopkins's Office of Design and Publications as a graphic designer in 1986; he became art director of Johns Hopkins Magazine six years later. Over the years he has earned several awards from CASE, and his work has been featured in PRINT magazine and in the UCDA's annual show.
