About

I graduated from The University of Bath in 2009 and have been creating Illustrations and Graphic Design work ever since. I was initially inspired by a love of music and a desire to be able to create posters for bands so that I can walk into a venue and see my own work. You can see a selection of my posters in collaboration with the promoter Sheer Music in my portfolio and blog. I ended up teaching myself how to illustrate digitally after being dissatisfied with just playing with the layout of a promotional photograph and a band logo to create posters. I bought my first Wacom tablet and after a bit of experimentation to work on my own style I've never looked back!

I have been lucky enough to work on a wide range of projects to date, from exhibition programmes to logos to business cards to wedding stationery and each has been produced using a collaborative approach and a desire to create something that satisfies the client and that I am always proud to say I created. Creating posters and logos for clients has also lead to creating my own fonts because somehow it seemed easier than trawling through other peoples on font websites and I've been able to create fonts of peoples handwriting (including my own) so that their logo is as personal as it can possibly be!

Testimonials

Julie designed save the dates and wedding invitations for our wedding in August 2014. From the original consultation through to producing the final products, Julie was a pleasure to work with. She immediately understood our ideas and was able to suggest imaginative ways to approach the designs and illustrations. Once we had decided on designs, Julie was quick to produce drafts and was extremely receptive to any feedback we had. Julie was also very prompt in all communications we had with her, which made the whole experience stress-free. I would definitely recommend Julie’s services!

I asked Julie to create a clear, crisp and friendly logo for my record label, and gave her a scrappy doodle I’d done on the back of a receipt as her only guide. What Julie came up with was exactly what we needed, and remains very much at the centre of our business five years on. She understood what we needed our logo to project, and hit the nail on the head. We still get compliments on it all the time!

We had a clear idea of the design we wanted for our wedding invitations and order of service, but were finding it difficult to create. Julie made our vision into a reality. The finished products were excellent – exactly what we had envisaged and fitted perfectly with the theme of our wedding. Many thanks again Julie!

Julie designed button badges that were to be handed out to guests at my wedding. Although I am a designer myself and had an idea of what I was after, I required the illustration skills of Julie along with her unique style to really bring the idea to life. I was really happy with the end result and these badges proved to be a big hit with guests at the wedding.
