About me
Hi- I am currently looking for a full time role. With over 20 years of solid agency experience, I am a senior digital designer and illustrator. As an expressive, colour-loving creative, I love creating exciting visual explorations to help bring brands and campaigns to life. I specialise in graphics, illustration, patterns and lettering. Preferably looking for a full time project but open to contracts (sole-trader)
Projects
  • Ogilvy Macmillan Art AuctionHad such fun designing this earlier in the year - the Ogilvy & Macmillan Art Auction. After devising branding and a logo (that could also double as graphic shape 'devices'), I created Instagram posts and posters. It's on hold until the lockdown ends properly. Designed with Deborah Ranzetta. Project organised by Amy Shaw, Ogilvy
  • Advertising workA selection of my 'work work' (when I am not doing all the other things I post on my Instagram - @jchicago ) Hoping to find a FT job that incorporates both!
  • Architecture & Buildings illustrationsIllustrations from my various trips- and lots of my home area Teesside, and my current area East London. I love suburban scenes and housing too. I try and inject colourful elements to them all in my usual colourful style. Please contact me if you'd like to commission an illustration. See more at behance.net/juliechicago
  • Lettering- wordsA selection of my lettering and typographical effects and creations
  • Lettering designLast year I was one of the lucky winners of an Adobe prize for the Instagram #36daysoftype competition. I've continued producing lettering or words most days-using illustrator and photoshop with custom art brushes. See more at https://www.behance.net/juliechicago
  • Image creation- Frozen flowersA project I did during lockdown, which involved freezing flowers then photographing them to make beautiful visuals.
