Hello, I am Julia 

As a designer I am into design research and the experience, trying to influence and shape perspectives, suggest alternative potential futures. I request things often with a critical approach and have a social and system driven focus.
I am highly interested in the intersection of design and science and to use design as a research tool.


I love to create experience and interactions related to different social behavior and environments. 
I deal with concept design, research, storytelling and film, UX, branding and art direction. 

As a person l am very into triathlon sports - especially cycling and exploring new areas. I love to climb up mountains and glaciers with my bike. Stone Materials and Sci-fi are some extras.


I gained experience through work and studies in the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Italy and Austria.

Earlier this year I graduated at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna in industrial design with focus on design futures.
Right now I am based in Vienna, Austria - experimenting with lichen and stones, planning my upcoming exhibitions.

See Unseen Edible: The Essence, The end of the year show of the Applied Arts in Vienna: 20-25 Nov 
Recently i was with UNSEEN EDIBLE at Dutch Design Week 
at the Design Indaba's Antenna Conference: antenna.foundation,
and exhibited at Edible Invisible by Dutch Embassy of Food  (Witte Dame, 1st Floor) 

and at het Veem ( 1st floor) 
I made it among the TOP FUTURE 100: 2019 -  Top 10 for food & drink, new ingredients with Unseen Edible.
