Typography is not art. Just like animation and graphic design in itself is not art. However, people tend to take it to the next level, both visually and conceptually. When done properly it evolves into an art form that stands on its own. But what is art? And what is it measured by? By uniqueness? By craftsmanship or by the number of hours put into a single piece? Whatever you wanna measure it by, the work of Yulia Brodskaya has all the characteristics of typographic art.
Yulia was born in Moscow. Troughout her life she was interested in diverse creative practices ranging from Textile Painting, Origami and Collage to more traditional Fine Art practices. She moved to the UK in 2004. Following an MA in Graphic Communication 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. She has swiftly earned an international reputation for her innovative paper illustrations and continues to create beautifully detailed paper designs for clients all around the world.
She’s not the stereotype of a starving artist, she’s worked for big clients like Neiman Marcus, Orange, Libelle, The Guardian, Sunday Times Travel, Wired, Blender Magazine, Lonely Planet and many others.
