In 2005 Sonja was thrilled to get her first graphic design job at a small Snap Printing store on the outskirts of Brisbane. Seeing her designs come to life in a tactile way, she immediately fell in love with printing and thought about how she would enjoy running her own shop one day.
Mentored by her kind boss and the owner of the business (the only other person who worked there!), Sonja learned everything there is to know about the print business. She went on to work for Worldwide online printing and has continued to focus on offering sustainable print solutions throughout her graphic design career over the past 17+ years.
Fast forward to 2023 and Sonja, with the help of her business partner, Caitlin, has built a successful and award-winning print and digital design agency – Ethical Design Co. EDCo. services medium – large ethical organisations, NGOs, universities, and private companies that have a focus on sustainability, social change, and innovation. Sonja and Caitlin realised early on that the success of many of their client projects came down to beautiful and sustainable print solutions. From this, the Ethical Print Co. brand was born; permitting them to offer these eco-friendly print solutions to a much wider audience, regardless of who the designer is.
