Speaker Bio
Sophia Yeshi is a queer Black & South Asian illustrator and graphic designer in Brooklyn, NY.
She’s a digital native that discovered Photoshop at 12 years old while growing up in Baltimore, Maryland. She created Yeshi Designs to shine a light on Black women, women of color and folks in the LGBTQ+ community of all shapes and sizes that are bold, dynamic, and demand attention.

After graduating from the University of Baltimore, she spent several years cultivating social media strategy, growing brand awareness, and designing collateral for corporate brands. Now she works with beauty, fashion, lifestyle, tech, and media brands like Google, Instagram, and Refinery29 to create culturally-relevant work centered around topics she’s passionate about like climate change, mental health, body positivity, and self-confidence.
