Hey there, I’m Sophie Bigo
art director in Graphic Design.
Here you will discover my passions: Graphic design, communication, words.
Why do I decide to start studying Graphic Design? Because I love both words and images. I deeply wanted to be able to communicate with the world. Understand the meaning of colors, shapes and typographies. It led me to graphic design… 10 years ago.
Since, I've been working for the biggest agencies in Europe, but also with tiny start-up who needed advice to be able to compete with the big ones. On the other side, my dream came true and I started to work for non-profit organizations. Using my skills to help them sharing strong and important messages.
Because yes, graphic design is the key to deliver a strong and powerful message, and I'm willing to give you the best.
