the visual exploration of typography

Julia's practise is informed by the collection of vintage wood type. Some work explores typography and meaning through the printed word and the more abstract pieces explore the printed letterforms and the spaces that surround them, giving the vintage alphabets a contemporary language and a new life without the distraction of meaning. Julia has been commissioned to produce surface designs, logo designs and poster designs for a variety of international brands. 

a warm welcome to 

artists, designers & creatives

If you would like to commission Julia to create bespoke artworks or designs or if you would like to visit and explore the visual possibilities of the collection, please get in touch.
