Julia Janssen is a research based graphic designer. She graduated from ArtEZ Institute of Arts in 2016 with a specialization in Design Research and has a main focus on digital– and alternative currency systems, digitalization and standardization. Her Research project are especially composed by combining reflections on reality, research and science, with fiction, speculation and fantasy. It’s not about trying to give the right answer to a problem, but to create a new, critical perspective on urgent topics. To raise awareness and discussion.


“Graphic design is an instrument to create critical perspectives

on established structures of society.”
