Hi and welcome on my website!
My name is Soňa Juríková and I am a freelance graphic designer and illustrator based in Prague. I focus on visual communication, books, visual identities, print and illustration both for kids and adults.
I like to use bright colours balanced with nice and calm typography.
I graduated on Academy of fine art and design in Bratislava, department of Visual communication. 
Many of my projects were awarded design prizes - I won the special prize of the jury on Belma Award 2020 with book "Letter soup", "Czemoji - Czech emoticons" won Slovak design award 2020, and for my bachelor project "Spelling book" won 2nd place in The Most beautiful book of Czech Republic, Student Design Award, selected to Graduation projects and much more.
