Design | Illustration | Education
Bella+Sophia Creative is a studio founded and run by me: Jennifer Veguilla-Lezan. I am a Chicago born Latina and proud mother of 3, who had creative dreams from the beginning. Despite hardships growing up, I attended art school as a first generation student.
With a career journey in fashion, design, illustration & digital media, I've come to merge my creative passions into the work I do as a freelancer. BSC studio is the culmination of those experiences and is focused on providing beautiful, fun and vibrant work to my clients.
I have a Bachelor of Arts with a focus in Marketing, Design &
Production. I graduated from Benedictine University's MBA
graduate program focused in Entrepreneurship and Small
Business Management in 2011.
In addition to my creative work, I love helping others on their creative paths. I taught in higher ed for 11 years and now teach online releasing my own courses on Skillshare and my own platform: The Creative Studio.
In addition to the work I do as a freelance creative, I am a fierce advocate because of the hardships I faced growing up. In the past, I've worked for and volunteered for non profits and I use my graphic design background to support causes that I am passionate about.
I am so proud of a course I worked on focused on Design for Good. In this video I share the story of my life and how it impacted my career and the work I do when it comes to design for good, my volunteerism and activism. I hope my story not only inspires you to pursue using your talents and skills to do some good in this world, but that it acts as a reminder that even if you come from rough and humble beginnings, anything is possible if you believe in yourself.
