My name is Julia Alvina. For short I’m JA! Design. ”Ja” means yes in Swedish, which is fitting since I say yes a lot, sometimes maybe too much.
I was born in Sweden in the cold mid-winter 1993, and grew up in Stockholm, but have lived in Edinburgh since 2015. I am currently in my fourth and last year of Graphic Design at Edinburgh Napier University.
Aside from being passionate about writing, design and photography, I am also good at cooking, making playlists and laughing loudly. 
The things I enjoy working with the most (and coincidentally, what I'm most skilled within) are anything involving storytelling where I get use of my skills in copywriting, crafting (especially in card) and book cover design. 
Here you’ll find a mix of some of my favourite projects I’ve worked on in and outside of university.
If you have any questions on surviving baltic winters, need advice on assembling IKEA furniture or want to discuss flux capacitors feel free to contact me on: or find me on social media @julialvinadesign.
