Julia July (1998)
As a young (graphic) designer I am starting to find my place in the world. I place confidence in giving the world a promising future through self-consciousness, more awareness and change of behavior. What I use for this is my curiosity, that is strongly about the visual expression of nature around us. Placing a material under a microscope and finding new insights and images, is an example of how I approache subjects for my designs.
The experimentation and research stage are important factors for me when designing for a broader public and conveying a message. I like it when can still see some traces of these stages back in the end result of a project. Often you can see in my work that it is ‘hand-made’. I think that this is what draws the attention. Found insights and bringing subjects to the surface that are less mentioned in daily life, can create a bigger understanding with the viewer in an uncomplicated way.
