‘Magic’ by Julia Woollams
Julia Woollams is a graphic designer and born-and-bred Londoner (well, if you class Croydon as London, as she does!) She studied graphic design at Central Saint Martins and after a bit of freelancing at the BBC she started working at johnson banks design in Clapham, and is still there over a decade later. Although specialising in branding nowadays, she still loves the chance to do some image-making, especially if it involves the best city on earth (she’s not biased at all…).
