DYL X AGI
In the second instalment of our exclusive Design Your Life series in collaboration with Alliance Graphique Internationale(AGI), Vince chats with old friend Sonya Dyakova, head of award-winning visual communication agency Atelier Dyakova based in London. After studying in San Francisco, Sonya moved to London, working in some of London’s most highly regarded agencies.
Before starting her own studio, Sonya worked with at award winning agencies such as Frost* Design and Kerr|Noble before working with iconic British designer Alan Fletcher at Phaidon Press where she was responsible for the design of books, ranging from contemporary art and design to architecture and photography.
Her approach is firmly rooted in conceptual and typographic experimentation developed through research with attention to tactile details. Sonya was responsible for the re-design of Frieze magazine as well as design & art direction of Frieze Masters publication. In 2011 she received a Grand Prix from the Tokyo Type Directors Club.
Listen in as Vince and Sonya discuss everything from growing up in Siberia, the power of perseverance, utilising fear to create positive outcomes, how to balance family and work and of course how to make the perfect book.
