Julia with Pink Dot background_edited.jp

Hello there!

I'm Julia, a textile and surface pattern designer with a love for

color and pattern, with 20+ years experience in

home textile product development.

 

I have expert knowledge of textile manufacturing and success launching

innovative home collections, licensed and private-label brands.

 

I started my career as a surface pattern designer working for both retailers

and offshore/US manufacturers.

I excel at leading the process from concept to completion in both design

and production. Through my career, I have evolved into being a leader with

a unique talent for working with artists and cross-functional teams.

 

I have owned my own consulting business for over 15 years,

and am able to create high-level design strategies-marketable products

that drive growth and profitability.

I am entrepreneurial by nature; compassionate by choice.
