I am Julia and this website summarises the various things I do, from my professional work, my research efforts, to a few more personal things such as travel photography and occasional thoughts on technology and life via my Tumblr blogs.
After having completed a Bachelor’s degree in media technology at FH St. Pölten I ventured on to Brisbane, Australia to complete a Master’s degree with honours in Digital Design, earning an Award of Academic Excellence, followed by a PhD in digital media and generative art, supported by two scholarships, thanks to the generous people at Griffith University’s AEL group.
In August 2015, after having spent around five years in Australia, I returned to Austria and while I am waiting for my recently submitted PhD thesis to be examined I am continuing my freelance work.
At the moment my work focuses on digital visual design. In the last years I have concentrated predominantly on video post production and motion graphics design. A lot of this work has taken place in the educational sector with my work for Griffith University. Increasingly, our work for these videos has revolved around the simplification of complex ideas in order to address a wide audience who may be interested in getting a quick and informative overview of particular research projects.
Aside from these projects my experience includes work with companies such as the ORF as character generator operator, the former Austrian social networking platform Uboot as a graphic and web designer, and later as a freelancer for various employers such as Fujifilm as graphic designer, Divine Studios as editor, photo retoucher and designer, Show + Tell Productions as motion graphics designer, and of course Griffith University, where I have had various opportunities from teaching, to research assistance, as well as motion graphics design with the Media Services department.
At the moment I’m a digital content producer at the Innovation Hub at Casinos Austria and Österreichische Lotterien. There I do anything from creating posters, to logo design, web design with WordPress and all kinds of video production. It’s a perfect way for me to apply all of my experience and further develop my skills. On the side I work for Tim Schmoyer at Video Creators and I do the occasional job for other people as well.
