Julia Kostreva is an American artist and designer.
Her work includes Brand Identity / Strategy / Art Direction / Design, Commissions and Brand Partnerships.
As a brand designer, she works with companies on the strategy side to define their brand and a meaningful, cohesive visual aesthetic, and on the design side to express it through all touch points– logo & brand identity, copy writing, art direction for photography, social media content, web design, packaging, and print. Depending on the size of the project, Julia leads a team of creatives, photographers, writers, and developers. We do both custom web design and Squarespace sites. Over the last few years, we have developed identities and touchpoints for a wide range of clients both large and small– putting effort into projects that will create the highest impact and most value for growing brands.
