Julia enjoys working with teams to tackle complexity, bring clarity, and deliver design solutions that make sense. She believes good design comes from understanding people by developing knowledge about what's most meaningful and useful for them. She is passionate about design research and is driven to continuously develop a strong set of research methods as well as build the experience to support her intuition. She is a visual thinker and uses sketching and storytelling as tools to materialize vision and achieve alignment.
Julia is from Paris, where she studied and worked as a designer for many years. Motivated by her natural curiosity and the desire to grow as a designer, she decided to cross the Atlantic to live and work in the United States. Prior to joining Adaptive Path, Julia worked as a design consultant for Dell and the University of Texas at Austin. In France, she was a lead designer with Kahn+Associates, a French-American consultancy specialized in Information Architecture and User Experience. While at Kahn+Associates Julia had opportunities to collaborate with large, complex client organizations to lead complete projects encompassing design research and interaction design.
Outside of work, Julia is happily discovering the United States with her family. She's especially interested in learning enough pop culture references to engage in American jokes.
