Yulia Brodskaya (born in 1983, Moscow) is an artist and illustrator best known for her handmade elegant and detailed paper illustrations. Originally from Russia (Moscow), she is now based in the UK. Prior to moving to the UK in 2004 she was interested in diverse creative practices ranging from Textile Painting, Origami and Collage to more traditional Fine Art practices. Following an MA in Graphic Communication (2006, University of Hertfordshire) she continued to experiment and explore ways of bringing together all the things she likes most: typography, paper, and highly detailed hand-made craft objects.
“Typography is my second love, after paper and I’m really happy that I’ve found a way of combining the two. Having said that, I don’t want to exclude non-typobased designs, I’d like to work on different projects,” says Yulia.
She has swiftly earned an international reputation for her innovative paper illustrations and continues to create beautifully detailed paper designs for clients like Nokia, Starbucks or The New York Times.
