About me

Julia Zieger is a multidisciplinary designer and art director working internationally from her studio in beautiful Magdeburg, Germany.  
Her passion for graphic art started when she was a little child growing up in a creative home, with her artistic mother and her talented brother.  This creative enviroment substantially affected her wish to become a visual artist.
Today she is living her dream to create visual art every day, always looking for new materials, tools and unconventional ways to express her ideas.
Julia currently lives in Magdeburg with the love of her life and a creative fire in her heart.
