Thilapia studio



Founded in 2016 Thilapia is a one-woman studio that specializes in print, illustrations, branding and web based work. 




designer 


Hayon's interest in graphic design was founded in her love of visual communication and passion for activism and social causes. Marrying these two led to the inevitable conclusion that in design, she would find a place to express both. Within the field of graphic design, she has done work in print and digital publications, founded RISD's first student-led podcast, made stop-motion films, and also discovered her passion for photography.

Her goal (for the time-being) is to pursue a path in graphic design that enables her to combine print journalism and graphic design to create discourse and share ideas about projects/people/ideas that inspire and shape the world.
