Kaori Sohma is an award-winning graphic designer, director, and a founder with more than +15 years of leadership and design experience in the advertising, branding, and broadcast industries.

She characterizes her work with intersecting the working souls of Muller Brockmann, Saul Bass, and William Eggleston. Her focus lies especially in expressing complex emotional states with playful humor, reduced to the simple geometric form, light, and movement. The work is also a subtle homage to her Japanese heritage, philosophy and aesthetic, playfully intertwined with american pop-culture.

“Kaori is an imperfect perfectionist who cherishes and expresses momentary simplicity in all its zen like wonder." - Travis Spangler

Kaori currently works as a creative director at Oxygen Media, NBC Universal.
