My name is Julia van Leeuwen and I’m an illustrator from the Netherlands. I work from my shared studio in the centre of Eindhoven, surrounded by other creative colleagues.
You can recognize my illustrations by the use of strong black lines, bright colours and simplified shapes. I focus on creating illustrations for products, packaging, editorial, publishing, and advertising campaigns.
I am a visual thinker and that's why head is always full of ideas and images. Therefore I work quickly towards a concept and final illustrations.
The one thing I love the most about my job is that I can use my illustrations as a medium to communicate in a clear, light and playful way. Be it illustrating social or environmental subjects or purely making decorative designs.
I am always looking for new projects and creative opportunities, so feel free to contact me at email@example.com
Something I love to do is live drawing. Making visual notes at meetings, events, conferences and brainstorm sessions.
I have been working for Getekend Verslag for over 4 years.
Getekend Verslag is a group of talented artists who make visual notes all over the world. Together we create artworks on foamboard or ipad.
At the end of the event we will present you an original artwork with everything that has been said that day, in the form of images and text.
