About

But who are you?

Sophia was born and raised in Seattle, where her high school self developed a love for all things fashion which expressed itself in the medium of photography and hoarding Nordstrom catalogs.

 

Sophia went on with the intention of studying Fashion Design and Photography at The Savannah College of Art and Design where she found her love for design would grow and evolve into the study of Graphic Arts. Now a graduate from the SCAD with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design, Sophia seeks to contribute to design in the realm of fashion, editorial and publication. Her supplemental studies of the fashion industry and the design process and construction of clothes has greatly influenced her aesthetic in the graphic arts and fed her appetite to seek out and create excellent and compelling design. Currently residing in Savannah, Georgia as the director of design for Community Bible Church, she works with the staff and other designers, illustrators, photographers and videographers to bring projects from conceptualization to realization. This position has provided her with experience in print, web and interface, way-finding, and even interior design, giving her plenty of opportunity to develop effective communication, directing, and collaboration skills.

 

Over all, Sophia is a creative that delights in the design process—the research, the thinking, the strategizing, the collaboration, the conceptualization, the failing, and the re-thinking. The nitty-gritty is where she thrives; consistently open to rethinking and reworking and collaborating.
