Petrula Vrontikis is a leading influence in graphic design.
Petrula's current work includes research, writing, consulting, creating brand communication strategies, training, and coaching. She received an AIGA Los Angeles Fellows Award honoring her as an essential voice raising the understanding of design within the industry, and among the business and cultural communities. She served as a national advisory board member of the AIGA, and is frequently asked to serve on numerous local, national, and international design juries.

Her professional practice gives her role as a teacher an important authenticity. She encourages students to explore their potential as designers and as a catalyst for change in the larger creative community.
Petrula is an avid traveler and visual translator. It's not unusual to find her scuba diving with giant manta rays, climbing a steep and rocky slope, or twisting her body like a pretzel in a yoga class.
