"Who Is Bold Type Studio ?" -  you may be wondering


Bold Type Studio is based in sunny Barcelona and is run by me (oh, hello!) - Sofia Akemi Marchi.

After quitting a career in the humanitarian aid sector,  I started different small businesses, ranging from bags and fashion design to selling vintage clothing, until I gave graphic design a try. And I loved it!

Some random facts: I adore irony, historical novels,  eating healthy, doodling food (foodling? Is that a thing?) and Nordic interior styling. 

Are we a good match? Then, let´s talk about how to up-style your branding!

Some testimonials:

" Akemi was able to turn a vague idea I had into an actual logo design. That was definitely good understanding of my brand´s aspirations ! Needless to say I am very happy with my new logo. I surely recommend Bold Type Studio if you´re thinking about getting your brand styling done professionally " .

" I found the brainstorming consultation (aka Find your Branding Voice) transforming in every way.  It helped me perceive my brand as a complex unit, where all the individual parts must be connected and at the same time complement each other. We can say that the initial questionnaire is an indicator of how well you know your brand. The good thing is that it offers you solutions on how to improve your knowledge. Each step is challenging from selecting the 3 words that describe your brand to colors, style and finally the target.  I had hard time to put everything together. Only after deep thinking and discussion with Akemi I found my new direction!" -
