Tia Socci is a graphic designer based in Brooklyn, NY.  Her work blends the fluidity of both physical and digital mediums while playing with materiality. It explores the relationship between the real and unattainable through drastic proportions, free form shapes, and dreamlike qualities mixed with the hyperreal. As a communications designer,  shes believes the most important thing is the story and what needs to be translated to the audience. The interdisciplinary and combination of graphic design, film, and fine art creates room for collaboration, new ways of thinking, and cutting edge ideas.    

Throughout her design studies, she practiced the craft of design, book making, coding and film. Being at a school that allowed her to take a multidisciplinary learning track, has given her  more of an open mind and an open approach to creating. Playing with materiality is something that she  values as a designer and think that it is vital to create interactive stories that make up design.
