About me

I'm Julia a Graphic Designer and Illustrator living in London, UK. In the past I worked as an in-house designer for several companies – nowadays I'm working as a freelancer and consultant. My design work ranges from branding, web design, to marketing collaterals and editorials. I like to keep it simple but colourful with a strong emphasis on grid and layout systems. When it comes to illustrations I like to take a break from the screen by using traditional tools such as watercolours, gouache or pen and ink. In my spare time, I like to improve my calligraphy skills, explore the world of analogue photography or work on self-initiated projects.
