This week our guest is the wonderful Kladi from PrintMySoul Studio. We chat about how the path to a career, let alone any kind of success, is paved with a lot of honest f*** ups, eating sh** and smiling while all that happens. Taking crappy jobs, taking chances and never giving up – something that so many do. Kladi tells us about her personal journey and she’s only at the beginning!

Kladi Vergine is a visual strategist and founder of Studio Printmysoul, a Manchester-based design studio. Kladi and her team specialize in creating memorable branding and impactful visuals for both print and web.
With a ten-year career and the experience of living in 6 countries on three continents, Kladi has a unique perspective in design, branding, and creativity. Her use of explosive colors and geometry could be traced back to her roots as a Southern Italian street artist. And her deep understanding of consumer psychology and communication comes from her career at the United Nations and corporate communication.
As a self-publish author, Kladi’s illustrated book, Plant Therapy, won the Fedrigoni TOP Designer Award 2019 for her unique use of cotton papers and ink. Kladi has also been the winner of Infohackit 2018 and Adobe’s San Francisco Creative Jam 2019. Kladi is now lead of Jessica Walsh’s Ladies Wine & Design in San Jose, CA.
In addition to her design work, Kladi has lead several branding masterclasses for Adobe’s Behance Live streams and currently mentors young artists through Adobe’s Discord page. Kladi has been a speaker at many industry related events worldwide for Adobe, Talent Land, Creative Pro, Adobe MAX USA, Adobe MAX EU, and the House Representatives in Washington D.C.
