Julie Peeters, graphic designer and creative director, will give a new talk in the Graphic Talks series, organised by the Graphic Elisava masters.

In her work as a freelance graphic designer, Julie has always focused on images and how the printed image can communicate ideas and be read. In her talk ‘Eyes’, she will focus on this theme and explain how she has explored it through different projects. From commissions to her own work with BILL magazine and related publications, as well as MMDC, a series of publications portraying libraries.

She will also talk about her role as a graphic designer on commissioned projects, how these projects contribute to BILL’s publishing, the importance of paper and the exploration of the offset printing process and how she distributes her own publications through events and meetings.
