Bio

I'm Sonja, 25 years old and a German-speaking Italian. Already as a child, I had an eye for the visual. The coaster of my mom's coffee had to match her cup, and in that bar we visited, I refused to sit where the horrible typography of an advertisement was. That's why I started studying graphic design & art direction in Milan and graduated with honors in 2019. I do not want to stop learning. I want to work with people who are pushing me to go beyond my limits, to give more meaning to my design.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

I'm Sonja, 25 years old and a German-speaking Italian. Already as a child, I had an eye for the visual. The coaster of my mom's coffee had to match her cup, and in that bar we visited, I refused to sit where the horrible typography of an advertisement was. That's why I started studying graphic design & art direction in Milan and graduated with honors in 2019. I do not want to stop learning. I want to work with people who are pushing me to go beyond my limits, to give more meaning to my design.

1. What's the most courageous thing you've ever done?

Half a year before I graduated I met in Milan an exchange student from New Zealand. After a few glasses of wine, we agreed that I would visit him at some point. So after I graduated I went back home, picked apples until I had enough money together to afford the trip and flew to the other end of the world to travel through New Zealand with someone I met only by coincidence. Since today we are in a relationship and we are living together in Italy.

2. How are creativity and innovation related?

Creativity is the seed of ideation, it allows someone to dream about what could be, to think outside of the realm of reality, to experiment with bringing the intangible into physical, and it allows one to come up with ideas that have never yet been thought of. And when innovative thinking meets creativity it is where these ideas can come to fruition.

3. Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

Clarity and creative at first glance can seem antonymous but in practice they are complimentary. A company with creative and no clarity will lose grasp of its purpose and a company with the opposite is true the company will fail to push itself beyond the safe and lethargic. It is only when a company can use both creativity and clarity together that they will be able to continuously innovate and engage.

4. You have 30 minutes of free time. What do you do with it?

I take my dog and go out for a walk to think about life, stuff, people, the environment, why some people are the way they are and if there really exists a meal where peanut butter does not go great with it.

5. What is one risky and bold goal in life you have? Or, if you could dedicate your life to solving one problem, what would it be?

Throughout history design has had a profound and irreversible effect on the way that people interact with and perceive the world around them. I would like to develop design to extend this in my own capacity by founding a studio which bridges the gap between the fantastical and practical design. A studio that can define unthought of problems and create creative solutions.

6. Explain your creative process

I have a unique creative process tailored to my strengths. I have a strong sense of creativity and for that reason I can receive inspiration from often overlooked things that others may even consider mundane. I also have a superbly vivid imagination where I then let my idea incubate. And then a work tirelessly to bring that idea to reality.

7. What is the best advice that you have been given?

What you sow, you reap – it’s advice my mom told me very young. For that reason I’m a firm believer that you get rewarded if you work hard enough.

8. What is your definition of creativity?

my definition of creativity is to imagine and dream about things that others don't even dare to consider.

9. What 10 songs are on your favorite playlist right now?

Feel away – Slowthai ft. James Blake, Mount Kombi It’s ok to cry – Kofi Stone Breakfast at tiffany’s – Knucks Chicken Tender – Dominic Fike Yoshi City – Yung Lean Gap in the Clouds – Yellow Days Unhealthy – Baker 101 FM – Little Simz White Ferrari – Frank Ocean Sangria – Esay Life

10. How do you want people to remember you?

A nice person who tries to understand the world, who stands up for the more vulnerable, and likes to drink a bottle of wine with you. I want you to know that I am always there when you and that I pursue my goals even if they seem surreal to others.
