Ju­nior de­signer Ju­lia Darze on how she fuses her Rio roots into both pro­fes­sional and per­sonal work

De­spite work­ing on brands like Boots, Beefeater and Nokia, de­sign grad­u­ate Ju­lia Darze only found her place in the cre­ative world when be­ing hired at Fi­asco De­sign – a stu­dio she'd fol­lowed since their 2016 in­ter­ac­tive Rio Olympic map il­lus­tra­tion. "The whole team are so cre­ative and tal­ented," she says. "I learn new things from them ev­ery­day." Six months on, and Ju­lia's hard at work find­ing a bal­ance be­tween her per­sonal and pro­fes­sional out­put. "I think it's re­ally im­por­tant, both as a way of top­ping up new skills and also cre­at­ing things in your own style." Ju­lia has cer­tainly found this in chan­nelling her affin­ity for Brazil: "ev­ery­thing seems to end up in­volv­ing plants and bright colours!" With re­gards to 'wow­ing' clients with such de­signs, "def­i­nitely," Ju­lia re­veals, "colour­ful and bold type­faces are where I try and show quirky al­ter­na­tives."
