About me

I don’t have a design degree. I’ve never worked in a creative studio and my photoshop skills are sub-par. What I do have are pencil-worthy ideas, a *very *rogue Cambridge degree, a keen eye and a huge work ethic. I try to care about the right things. I'm a good designer because I use my work to promote positive social change. In December 2018 I founded 'on the mend', a design studio which raises awareness of healthcare inequalities through events and workshops. http://www.onthemend.me/ Extra bits about me: 1. I am pen pals with another Sophia Luu 2. One of my relatives recently became a saint 3. I came 16th in a National Acrobatic Rock and Roll competition (for students, I'm really not that good.) 4. I learnt how to make incense at a monastery in Belgium

    • 'on the mend' is a studio I founded dedicated to improving healthcare inequalities. We’re one of the only creative studios in the UK to focus solely on health awareness. Our bespoke events, workshops and artworks are designed to educate people on the societal impacts on health and well-being. We provide a platform to empower those under-represented by the current healthcare system. I co-run the studio with the fabulous Mathilda Della Torre.
