Hello & Welcome

Thank you for stopping by. I’m Joann Sondy–designer, publisher and speaker.

Change is my word-of-the-year for 2016–professionally and personally. A career graphic designer who is embracing new opportunities to produce and talk about creative process. Please connect with me via social media or join my e-list to stay abreast of my activities and product launches.

Currently, I’m working on collections that are inspired by the Jazz and Art Deco era (1920s & 1930s); this will be an ongoing passion!

Ever have one of those brief memories of your childhood? It comes vividly…then disappears. My “78RPM” silk scarf was the result of remembering the stack of old records of my grandparents. Combined with the frequent architecture walking tours I’d been leading in downtown Chicago. (Tons of research, too.) The result… a vivid color scheme exemplifying the energy and attitude of the time.
