about
SOPHIE ZHAO
9/FEB ‘99—YYZ
PRODUCT
DESIGNER
Currently at addy making real estate investing possible for everyone.
And creating for tomorrow at daybreak studios.
My work is guided by a strong belief in design as a way of recognizing + forming relationships between ideas + reality, and as a method for improving the connections between people and the products they use. I believe good design must touch both the heart and the mind for it to have lasting relevance. My aesthetic approach often involves a distinct sense of play, aiming to put the ‘fun’ in functional.
Outside of design, my passion lies in dance, dogs, and the designer fashion industry. I tend to enjoy the little things in life, so naturally I like to pay attention to detail. Get to know me and you’ll quickly learn that I aim to impress, try to keep everyone’s best interest at heart, and get along with everybody—and every pooch!
