Julius Clinical is a company that focuses on conducting high-quality clinical research. Julius Clinical aims to provide their clients with the best possible experience when it comes to clinical research. They understand the importance of quality data and strive to make their research as transparent and accessible as possible.
However, they, along with many of their competitors, had difficulty showcasing this information in a way that was both efficient and easy to understand. To address this issue, me and my team were asked to rethink their brand and digital experience.
Julius Clinical needed a way to highlight their studies, we did this using a global map. This map serves as a funnel to provide more information about all the services that Julius Clinical have provided for clinical trials, so far. In addition to this, we’ve created strategic touchpoints for Julius Clinicals clients and customers to gain knowledge about how they conduct their research and trials. As part of this a "news" channel was shaped in which Julius Clinical can share upcoming events, courses, company updates and more.
Focus on responsibilities. I took the lead in directing the creative strategy & direction for this project, overseeing the entire design process from start to finish. This involved managing and guiding the team, as well as building strong relationships with key stakeholders. Throughout the project, I was involved in everything from initial exploration and concept development, all the way to prototyping and final design. I supported and challenged the team every step of the way, ensuring that every aspect of the strategy and design was on point. At the end of the day, my goal was to create a cohesive and effective experience that met the needs of both the client and the end-users.
Julius Clinical wanted to update their branding, including their logo and other brand elements. However, their previous logo was a triangle, and this shape played an important strategic role within the company. Each corner of the triangle represented a unique trait that formed the foundation of how Julius Clinical operates: science, operations, and network.
To honor this strategic goal, we decided to embrace the triangle and give it a fresh new twist and shape. This allowed us to maintain the importance of the triangle while emphasizing Julius Clinical's connection even more.We didn't stop at the logo, either. We created multiple branding assets, such as logos & shapes, as well as an update on colors and typography to showcase Julius Clinical's values and message. Also crafting templates for social media assets, presentations & more to ensure that the new branding was consistent across all platforms.
I'm all about creating amazing products and experiences that are a joy to use. Doing this while trying to align business goals with user needs and desires, definitely a tricky balancing act. I've been doing this for over 11-12 years now, trying to give a unique perspective on the projects I had the pleasure working on. I rely on a combination of methods, my experience and gut instincts to deliver results that make users happy and achieve our goals.
Throughout my career, I've worked in multiple fields, including print, advertising, motion, and product design. Even though each one has its unique challenges, I find it super rewarding to partner with colleagues & clients and help a vision come to life. My passion for product and experience design has grown naturally over time. While taking on leadership roles in various design projects, to help guide and mentor other creatives another passion was born. I believe in teamwork & diversity! Unique people, views & ideas shape opportunities to make magic happen across all (digital) touchpoints.
I'll admit, my journey into design was a bit unorthodox. I didn't go to school for it or anything. But I've been tinkering with software like Photoshop since I was a wee 12-year-old, and I even designed my first website at the ripe old age of 14! Over time, my love for problem-solving, aesthetics, and technology only grew stronger, until I knew I had to switch careers and pursue design full-time. I'm so grateful to Steam in Amsterdam for taking a chance on me and letting me bring my unique perspective to their projects.
These days, you'll find me living in the suburbs of Amsterdam, zipping around on my bicycle, taking adventurous rides on my motorbike, and exploring all sorts of things outside. But before I started wandering around the flatlands of the Netherlands, I spent a bit of my childhood in France. Most of my life though was spent in the lovely city of Cologne, in Germany
I'm a people person at heart and consider myself an empathetic and caring individual, with a love story for mountains. A few of my guilty pleasures, next to design, that I can't resist—are listening to old-school rap and obsessing over Star Wars.
