helloo! čau!

my name is Sofija and I’m an extremely extraverted graphic designer from Latvia.

it feels like i’ve been doing art since i was a small child. i still have memories of drawings on the wallpapers that i did in my old house and covering everything in paint and chalks when i’d get inspired by a colourful book.

my real strength is my attention to detail and ability to bring in creativity and fun into the most boring things.

i’m forward thinking, passionate about what i do and i’m always improving my skills in different creative areas on my day-to-day basis. my current goal is piano.

for most of my life i actually thought that i would end up being a mathematician or an engineer, while doing art and music as a hobby, but i totally drowned in those two at some point in my life and i don’t really want to get out.

the scariest moment for me was moving to the UK when i turned 16 to go to university. but this has been the most amazing time of my life so far even with the enormous amount of hours spent at the library doing work.

before uni i did illustration, portrait-drawing so i try to merge those skills into my graphic design work.
