FULL SAIL UNIVERSITY
Julia is “a Big Brother watching, tap dancing, wannabe pro wrestling, Tekken playing, guitar strumming, fashionista-foodie-on-a-budget techie working as a graphic designer at Creative Approach in Savannah GA, while working towards a MFA in Media Design.” Julia designs print and web materials for a treasure trove of different businesses with unique audiences, voices, and needs. She works with accelerated deadlines and thrives on challenging herself to further blur the line between graphic design and illustration; something I love doing with my personal, more whimsical, work. I also enjoy working with new technology and new workflows that make design more spontaneous and accessible. “When I’m not designing … I’m probably designing.”.
