Julia Fabricius

My work as a freelancer mostly counts to the areas editorial- and book design as well as illustration. In 2018 I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design in Berlin. Since then I have been working as a freelancer, but I have also done an internship at a book bindery. My keywords are analog mixed with digital, translated into the playfully conceptual.
