Julie is a dynamic and conscientious individual who is willing to go above and beyond to ensure success. She possesses outstanding creative, organisational and interpersonal skills. She effortlessly immerses herself to grasp brand knowledge and apply that into her work effectively.
Despite her fantastic work ethic, Julie’s cheerful and warm disposition enables her to add an element of warmth to any environment. She is a team player who is always willing to offer support and share her expertise with her colleagues.
- Kerry Cuppusamy (Brand Manager - Unilever)
Julie is a consummate professional; she is an excellent designer, able to understand and interpret a brief in a way that makes one feel that, as a client one has been truly understood, while at the same time demonstrating a high level of intuitive flair.
Not only is Julie very accomplished in design, but she is also a talented photographer. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
- Carl Verster (The Bluebox Business Systems)
Julie displays proactivity, expertise and takes feedback well in all the artwork development. She delivers with so much speed and efficiency. Her attitude towards the work she does is refreshing, and she made it a pleasure for me.
- Phumi Bohlela (former Brand Manager - Unilever)
I have always felt confident walking into a design signoff meeting with Julie’s designs. Even when there was lots of back and forth from clients, small tweaks and changes, Julie was always happy to make the required adjustments to give the client the happiness they were after while still maintaining the design's integrity.
Julie’s efficiency is only topped by her kindness. I believe Julie has the perfect combination of creativity and diligence. Always giving of her best, I feel she will compliment any business with her design skills.
- Tyron Bache (Smashing Web Development)
We commissioned Julie to do the design work for our coffee roasting business and we were delighted with all that she completed for us. She was organized, passionate, excited and completed jobs timeously. Always willing to go the extra mile. Julie was a delight to work with and we will definitely keep going back to her!
- Greg & Fiona Bailey (Manna Roastery)
Julie is a very capable, driven and hard-working professional. I had the pleasure of working with her at Unilever, collaborating on many projects that involved Lux, Dove, Dove Men+Care and Dove Masterbrand (the brands I used to be responsible for). Working on global brands is never easy for a creative designer, due to the many guidelines related to the CI and the dos/donts applied by the global teams. However, Julie always managed to bring a fresh and creative approach to every project, contributing with ideas that resulted winning for the campaign, without ever compromising the guidelines of the brand.
Julie was always able to understand my brief correctly, and to bring it to life through an excellent execution, usually from the very first revert. She is very committed and passionate about design, and despite the high volume of work she received from the different Brand Managers and Assistant Brand Managers every day, she used to take every single project with focus, motivation and passion, given her full self.
- Martina Mondelli (former ABM - Unilever)
I have known Julie Patrick for more than 10 years as a designer, photographer and most of all phenomenal person and friend. We graduated together from the Durban University of Technology and she came out the top of our class. She is hardworking, dedicated and incredibly talented.
Julie is an amazing and skilled designer with so much passion for the industry. I’ve had the privilege to work with her on a number of different projects, from brand strategies, custom designs and photography. She created the branding for our biggest in-house project, called Digitise. The logo, branding and colour scheme was exactly what we had in mind, as well as the brochures she created for an exhibition we attended in 2017. Julie is so easy to work with, a great listener, good communicator, follows a brief to a T and interprets things exactly as intended with her perfectionist touch. She has a heart of gold and you can't go wrong choosing her for any project, big or small.
