Argentina-born, UK and US-educated, Portugal-based Sofia Clausse makes work as colourful and varied as her nomadic life, as her bright, bold website shows. But unusually for us, it wasn’t the vibrantly-hued projects that most impressed us, but a seemingly unassuming monochrome zine. Entitled The Windy City Zine, Sofia’s creation is an ode to her time spent in Chicago. “The distortion of the building windows and the Cloud Gate sculpture served as inspiration for the warped images and type,” Sofia explains. The strange, disquieting effect would look as at home on a record sleeve as it does on a zine, and makes for a far more interesting memento of the journey than a food-packed Instagram feed. Another lovely touch with Sofia’s work is how she opens up her sketchbooks for all to see on her website, and you take take a peek here.
