Julia Mills

I'm a good listener with an eye for detail.


As a multidisciplinary designer, I enjoy working with clients to deliver thoughtful, creative and effective design solutions.


I studied Graphic Design at UAL's Camberwell College of Arts, and went on to manage the in-house design studio at Imperial War Museums. For over 15 years, I oversaw its creative output across five diverse visitor attractions including IWM London, Churchill War Rooms, IWM Duxford, HMS Belfast and IWM North.

I set up Julia Mills Design with the aim of sharing ideas and creating great designs in a friendly and innovative environment.


Please get in touch if you have a project and would like to find out how I can help.
