Julia Mendrok - Julia Mendrok- Designer with a passion for innovation.

Hello, I’m Julia Mendrok.

Designer with a passion for innovation.

My love for design developed through the boards that meant the world to me. In the years before my studies, I performed quirky texts in smoky pubs as a poetry slammer and explored the german-speaking region. Through a festival in Frankfurt (Main), I got to know the international street theatre „Antagon“ and realized how limited words can be. Texts can only be understood if you know the language and the cultural area. But I imagined my future to be more boundless.

So I began to look for another design craft – one that was independent of language – and became involved with photography. When the question of what I wanted to do with my life and what I wanted to learn came closer and closer, I looked for possibilities to turn my creative urge into a job and I found myself in design.

Design is the study of creation and combines different craft methods depending on the project. The ability and responsibility to design, solve problems, and make people’s lives easier and more beautiful has become my passion. I’m a designer with a passion for innovation. A passion which I studied close to the Bauhaus in Dessau and graduated with a B.A. (Integrated Design) and an M.A. (Intermedia Design). Design is urgently needed in times of change and crisis and I want to use my skills to create a better future and inspire people for new possibilities and change. I want to design boards that mean the world to everyone.
