Julia Read | student
Since graduating with a BA from the University of the Arts in London, Europe's largest specialist university for art and design, Julia has built a successful career as a User Interface Designer and Art Director, crafting products and services for inspirational global and local brands.
Julia is experienced in leading large-scale human-centric mobile app and website builds, and specialises in digital rebrands. She particularly enjoys the tenuous states of creative discovery, concept generation, and visual exploration.
Julia has a keen interest in emerging immersive tech and art, specifically for areas where these disciplines collide, and is particularly fascinated by MR and CG VR experiences, tools, and products. She believes this program will allow her to take a step back from the act of doing and reflect, build on her professional experience, and help her better comprehend the intricacies of industries and sectors she is intrigued by.
Ultimately, her aim is to step up to a creative leadership role in an innovative company where she has room to grow. This would require a breadth of experience and skills that she believes the MDM program can provide, while complementing those she already has. Julia is curious, perceptive, and has chased the cutting edge of design for most of her working life.
