Graphic Designer and Design Researcher. Filled with love and a critical inquisitiveness she analyses, systematizes, translates and visualizes. Creating projects ranging from analogue to digital matter. Beaming for collaborations; with artists, writers, publishers, cultural and social institutions. She positions herself within the intersection of art, society, culture, goods and commerce. With the urgency of creating new relationships with each other, the things we see, the textiles we wear and the products we buy.

Julia Berg is a graphic designer and design researcher. Lives in Arnhem and works everywhere. Divides her time looking for the right balance between mentorship, research and design.

Her interest lies in the complex relationships between economy, society, people, product or object and value. Her enthusiasm continues in her love for architecture, painting, literature and poetry.

Part of design collective idiotes. A design research group, where they like to work with others, improving working methods and initiate change. The studio uses design research, which is characterized by experiment, interaction and reflection. The highest goal is not only learning to understand complex issues, but also to explore possible solutions and a final intervention, campaign or product. They work together with various partners such as municipalities, educational, social or cultural institutions.
