Hi Julie, You know I’ve added this blog to my blogroll. After few surfing I found it really inspirational even I didn’t know who’s the author. Found a female designer I’m feeling so great. At last I just want to say that your blog has filled with lots of good resources for a designer. Keep up the good work.
Best Regards

Hi Julie, I dig the beautiful design work you feature here.

I just launched my own site where people can customize kitchen mixers – color, details, everything – then they can post their design on Facebook. Thought you might want to check it out.

Rock on,

Hi Julie

I found your profile on the TYPO page and briefly read you are/were a professional dancer also than all of the above you present on this blog. We have a similar path and I would like to get in tough with you privately if you don’t mind to share my experience and see if we can find a way to collaborate.

Comment by Eddie

I was a dancer 15 years ago, so not anymore :-) I’m super busy with everything, so I’m not taking on any collabs at the moment but if you’re going to Berlin you should definitely come and say hello! It’ll be really fun to go there and talk about one of my projects.
Stay creative!
Best regards

time both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!
