Hi There!

My name is Sonja Vasiljeva and I am a Slovenian-American graphic designer and illustrator located in the Bay Area.

In the past 4 years, I've worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for companies such as Grocery Outlet, Study Breaks, and Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

I have a quick and hardworking work ethic, which allows me to quickly adapt to different visual brand styles and work with quick deadlines. When working with clients, I always prioritize seeing through their vision and making it come to life. I have expertise in all Adobe programs, as well as Figma and Procreate.

In my free time, I enjoy being outside, in particular hiking, swimming, or playing water polo. I also consider myself a book worm as of late and am trying to build up my book collection. On the rare occasions that I am not illustrating for work, I also find myself working on different personal illustration projectsa and hope to one day publish my own children's illustrated book.

If you have any questions, commissions, requests, or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me through my email or LinkedIn.
