Who I am

Who I am.

Favicon | Sonia Margea - Graphic Designer

Hi there! My name is Sonia Margea. I am a Romanian multidisciplinary independent graphic designer and photography enthusiast based in Granada (Spain). My work mostly spans editorial design, branding and visual identity, packaging design, photography, UI/UX and web design. However, if I were to describe what I do in more general terms, I would say that my work is about helping people communicate. Not just in any way, but by meticulously thinking everything down to the very last detail.

Simple yet Bold, Minimalist yet Provocative

My aim is to help people communicate through a minimalist yet provocative aesthetic. In this context, I am committed to design engaging concepts that impact the audience and effectively impart unique experiences. Simple yet bold graphic solutions — this would be my work ethic, which I always pursue in order to not only meet expectations but also exceed them.

From Timișoara (Romania) to Granada (Spain)

I have always been a passionate art enthusiast. I used to draw every single day, as well as occasionally I was entertaining myself by taking pictures or by writing down random thoughts and sometimes even poems. This passion encouraged me to study arts in high school in my Romanian hometown and later even bring a blog into existence in which I was quite comfortable sharing my ideas from time to time. Soon I started to digitize mostly everything I was drawing on paper which led me to create my first promotional posters for different local music events. Then, suddenly, I realized that I was no longer satisfied with just being an artist but rather prepared to discover more, broaden my horizons and eventually confront new challenges by actually evolving into a professional graphic designer. However, a part of me knew that the best way to do that was by getting out of my comfort zone, even though it seemed quite terrifying at the time. That was the moment when I decided to take the biggest step I have ever taken in my life until now — moving to Spain. And since then… I have never stopped.

From Art Enthusiast to Freelance Graphic Designer

Ever since I finished high school, I have never stopped exploring outside my comfort zone. Therefore, I am constantly looking to learn new skills and improve the already existing ones, enhance my visual culture and offer my clients high-quality design services. I am also focusing on not losing touch with design industry trends and familiarizing myself with different design-related methodologies.

I am recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Higher School of Art and Design of Andalucía and currently freelancing from Spain and Romania — mostly Spain. As a result, today I consider myself a highly motivated, diligent and creative graphic designer who is always ready to both listen and perform.
