Do and Be your best…
In all aspects of your life

Hi, I’m Julie – creator, marketer, mum, founder and CEO of the Sydney-based design and marketing agency Design + Marketing Pty Ltd.

After toiling in the fields of design and marketing for over 30 years in a number of capacities, I eventually decided to launch my own creative agency over twenty years ago. The company, I’m pleased to say, has been very successful, providing strategic and creative services to a number of large multinational organisations. Throughout my journey, I’ve learnt many valuable insights, both professional and personal, which I hope may be of some value to you. Being an authentic, independent person who’s always up for a challenge, I’ve set myself the task of sharing insights to help others live happier, simpler, motivated and more balanced lives.

Do & be your best

Branding, creative & digital marketing

I personally love progress, productivity and creativity, and get satisfaction and happiness from people thriving and achieving.

Because of this, I have specialised in helping people and companies effectively kickstart or relaunch their passions into the market, through their businesses and ideas. With the help of my passionate creative team, I know how to deliver affordable, practical, cost effective, brands, marketing campaigns, strategies and frame works that make sense. I provide the inspiration and tools to help you build awareness, connect with customers and ultimately achieve your own passions and dreams.

I put the time in to understand your business, then look at the best way to launch or relaunch, presenting a range of options. If you would like me to help you launch, kickstart or achieve growth in your business feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn.

It’s a simple process that starts with a workshop and will result in a personalised marketing direction with the right touchpoints that work and matter for your product, specifically suiting your budget.

Throughout my career, I’ve learnt many valuable insights, both professional and personal ones, which I hope may be of some value to you. Being an authentic, independent person who’s always up for a challenge, I’ve set myself the task of sharing insights to help my readers live happier, simpler, motivated and more balanced lives. Remember, the most important investment ever, is the investment you make in yourself; so, I hope this site inspires and motivates you to improve, believe, evolve and make a difference, keeping things simple and focusing on what matters most.

Please feel free to take a look at my motivational book, share the quotes on Instagram and Facebook or refer a friend to subscribe!
