About me
Julia Woollams is a graphic designer and branding consultant with nearly two decades of industry experience both in the UK and overseas. She formed 31% Wool – a consultancy combining branding, design and marketing – with Angela Martin to creatively solve problems for clients in interesting and unusual ways, with a firm focus on rationale. The verbal side of a project is as important to her as the visual side – the crossover between design and strategy being paramount. Making a positive social difference through design is a priority, therefore her key projects are in the cultural, education and not-for-profit sectors. Julia co-founded, writes and designs for the Croydonist, a cultural blog about Croydon, which promotes all the cool things going on in the south London borough. When she's not designing or writing she is a guest lecturer on several design courses including Central Saint Martins, Kingston School of Art, Derby University, and Croydon School of Art, is regularly involved in D&AD's educational programmes and volunteers as a support worker for the charity Breast Cancer Care.

Using this as a starting concept, I expanded the imagery into a full length music video for the same song. In support of the single launch, I created a 20 minute documentary detailing the origin of the song and its evolution, combined with live performances from the band.

  • Bugeye
    BugeyeEvolving visual identity for disco-punk band Bugeye. ​ The brand adapts to fit the themes in their music, with each release having its own visual genre. The ‘Is this love’ EP focuses on 80s typographic vernacular, reminiscent of audio and VHS tape packaging from the decade. The ‘Wake Up’ single and associated campaign material evoke the anarchic feel of the 1970s. ​ Bugeye's debut album ‘Ready Steady Bang’ and single releases 'Don't Stop', 'When The Lights Go Out' and 'Blue Fire' tackle sub
