Julia von Fraunberg

I used to be Julia von Fraunberg (and still am in my free time). But in Catalonia, where I live, I became “Júlia who?” which is not a good name for a free-lancing professional. So I remembered my first days in Spain, when I still pronounced my name in German. To people here it just sounds like “Júlia Font (and-something-I-didn’t-get)”, Font being a common Catalan surname. Now I’m an undercover Catalan and save about 6 minuts a day in spelling.

After some years in different graphic design firms in Barcelona, I became art director of a Catalan magazine, Descobrir Catalunya, for two years. The next 5 years I was art director at Critèria / Grup Cultura 03, responsible for two magazines, some book series and a whole lot of illustrated books of all kinds. Since 2007 I work on my own. For big jobs, I work with the graphic design studio Cèl·lula as Júlia Font i Cèl·lula.
