< Warning > Sometimes we talk about ourselves in third person.

 

 

The idea to set up a company was born one rainy afternoon in February 2015 in Jo’s flat in Clapham Common, while Sonia was taking Jo’s pictures for a project of her own. About a month later we had a name, Pulp & Pith.

We are passionate about the arts industry and have worked on various projects but also just enjoy simply being audience members.

Jo loves dancing, in her dream world everyone would dance their way to work or to the pub and would be happier. She enjoys observing people, assuming things and finding out she is right. She hates long distances in London and prefers independent shops to international chains. She also loves theatre and is addicted to Edinburgh Festival Fringe. She has seen more than 125 shows there.

Jo has been working at Edinburgh Fringe as Head of Marketing for Assembly Festival. Before, she worked in Madrid for Teatro Español and Fringe Madrid as Marketing Consultant, where she discovered the pleasure of seeing shows without having a clue what they are on about (she started learning Spanish when she moved there). She wants to travel around the world but hates flying, so she worked for Interactive Theatre International as Global Marketing Manager and traveled in spirit with Faulty Towers the Dining Experience international tour.

For Jo Pulp & Pith is a challenge, an opportunity to work on projects she enjoys, and a chance to be called entrepreneur, although she has trouble pronouncing the word. When she is not working she is dancing lindy-hop somewhere in London or traveling for swing dance festivals.

The best place to find Sonia smiling is behind her camera. In a personal journey to embrace and understand her own femininity and her insatiable curiosity about human emotions, she began to use the camera as her favourite creative tool. She did not stop there, with a natural talent for word and craft, she brought together her personal interests and professional career. She enjoys life in London, from the noise to the diversity and the sense of endless possibilities. She even enjoys having to follow her calendar to book meetings with friends.

Sonia has a professional background in Industrial, Graphic and Media Design plus a MA in Visual Culture. She has focused on intertwining image production, branding and visual message with theoretical research, developing projects for large and medium sized companies in Latin America and Europe as well as her own artistic projects. Her clients like her but mostly love her work. 

For Sonia Pulp & Pith is the perfect scenario to bring her unique views and perceptions into practical solutions for people while preserving her curiosity in observing the world around her and day to day life. When she is not working she is probably watching a film somewhere in London.

Charikleia loves the arts but has had a long-lasting affair especially with music. She loves coming across records she has never heard of and discovering new artists, as well as observing the emotions that the arts can stimulate. In her free time, she loves meeting up with friends, reading books, strolling around the city and admiring how cultures can shape an urban environment.

After studying Journalism and Mass Communications, Charikleia decided that although writing about the arts is fun, it would be more fascinating to actually try to become a part of this world. She has previously worked as a journalist, a PR and marketing assistant for music projects and is now doing an MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy.

For Charikleia Pulp & Pith is a great opportunity to learn and share ideas among two creative women, as well as be exposed to new projects and interesting productions. She also adores the name, since she has always been a great fan of Jarvis Cocker and Pulp.


Aggeliki has five bags of color markers, color pencils and watercolors using them to fill papers and walls with her illustrations. When she runs out of hues she turns to her digital palette.

She has a degree in architecture that introduced her in a world of conceptual synthesis and creation, useful tools for her progression into the world fine arts and dancing. She loves motion, so she either moves her body or creates imaginative animations. Her illustrations are choreographed, always using humour and pinches from her childhood memories.

With an experience in illustration, graphic design, mural design, motion graphics and dancing she has a pluralistic professional approach

In her free time she plays with her dog hide and seek and the dog always wins.
