"In addition to valuable design press, Julia created important connections in the local community by establishing an annual Residency programme to support young Lambeth entrepreneurs. The process was seamless and resulted in us welcoming two excellent creatives to The Studios. Julia is not only extremely rigorous and professional, but always a pleasure to work with." Michael Squire
The Department Store Studios opened in 2021 as an independent co-working community of businesses in Brixton.
Over twelve months, I worked with The Studios to support the launch of their neighbourhood workspace. Leading communications for local and city-wide audiences, I created a strategy across digital channels, press and events to promote the workspace, create conversations across the property industry and attract tenants.
Locally I initiated work with local artists and established an annual Residency programme to create a platform for young talent and build meaningful connections with the community.
Press coverage included a BBC London Radio interview and features in Dezeen, Wallpaper and Property Week.
