The Studio


Sophie Douala (she/they) is a visual artist and creative director exploring design through the lens of culture, identity, evolution and emotion.

Established within the cultural sector, we have collaborated with institutions, brands, collectives, magazines, and labels on a wide variety of projects. These projects include brand identities, art directions, illustrations, books and publications, album covers and spatial design.

Oscillating between commissioned work and personal creative practice, we navigate the realms of design and art, drawing inspiration from our generation and its struggles, as well as its aspirations for a brighter future.
