Sophia Luu

Founder & Managing Director 

Sophia is a good designer – that is, she uses her work to promote positive social change. Her current projects involve designing period positive campaigns, documenting her Vietnamese roots and writing a graphic novel about child abuse. 

She has a degree in the History of Science and studied at Kingston, Central Saint Martins (MA) and the University of Cambridge (BA), where she guest lectured on the language of smell.

Sophia likes to dabble in all aspects of life - she’s been a voice actress, a junior nail technician and is related to an official canonized saint!

Mathilda Della-Torre

Co-Director & Project Manager

Mathilda is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. Being half French, half Italian, having lived in several European countries and worked in Morocco and India, she highly values multicultural collaborations.

She uses her art as a way to look closer for longer, to portray how she sees small portions of the world, to bring people together through creative exchanges and to position peripheral voices in the centre of our stories. But most importantly, she loves the sunshine, drawing, falafel, London, charity shops and all shades of pink. (Nice jumper Mats!)

Working at the intersection between Art and Science, Lottie previously worked in neurophysiology research at The National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery, and has degrees in Physiology (BA, University of Oxford) and Clinical Neuroscience (MSc, Kings College London). Her work concerns (mis)perceptions of illness, disability and the process of aging. She uses insights from paid and voluntary work in the care sector, personal experience as well as theory to re-present and re-humanise people.
