I'd love to design for projects that do good work. I'd like to get involved with communities and make a real difference to someones life. I'd also like to meet creatives who share the same passion.

Julia's 'getting stuff done' manifesto

  • Think
  • Design

I'm able to think laterally and creatively and produce effective design that responds to a clients brief. I'm happiest producing conceptual design and working with people willing to take a risk. I have seven years experience as a graphic designer and have worked for a range of North West Agencies. I'm passionate about music and play drums in 'Champion Lover', one of Manchesters most innovative bands.
