Julia Braga, The Branding Girl

 

 

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, but I’ve lived in Finland since 2012. I grew up in a house full of music and visual arts, which led me to pursue design professionally in 2010, although my passion for design revealed itself in 2007. I jumped to design after working with photography for a few years.

Branding is a passion that revealed itself to me after I worked for a few months on our family business in Brazil, and I began to realize that business and design held hands. To differentiate and set me aside from other brand designers, I started developing a style of my own with letters.

Some fun facts about me: 

  • I did my first logo when I was 13 for a school voluntary project.
  • That’s also when I got interested in coding websites.
  • I’ve worked as a horse photographer.
  • I love going to gym.
  • I am part of two family businesses.
  • I have a female Schnauzer back in Brazil named Nina.
  • I have always been attracted to Finland, but don’t really know why.
  • I’m a smiley shorty 😀

I value transparency and honesty to get the most out of Business and to overcome hardships—because no matter how you prepare, they show up. I also value taking ownership of the problems I encounter.

I can help you figure out your brand’s promise and to cloak it with a beautiful visual identity.

My mission is to brand businesses with carefully crafted unconventional ideals and handlettered logos. If you are willing to work hard, put in the hours and deliver value to your market, you are a perfect fit.

By uniting Design and Business, I give you a whole new ground for exploration and innovation. There’s uniqueness on the process of creating a brand when you love both Design and Business.
