My name is Juliana, and I come from a small country called Slovakia. I am a student of graphic design at University College of Northern Denmark (UCN) in Aalborg. I am currently in my 3rd semester, looking for an internship.
One of my favorite activities is walking and listening to a podcast or using the walk time to think about current projects. I strongly believe that my addiction to learning in combination with caffeine helps me move towards my goals and overcome any obstacles on the way. I am a naturally curious creature who likes to develop her own self.
My interests: Typography, Branding, Poster design, Crafts

Since my childhood, I have always loved to create different things out of paper. I thought creatively, came up with solutions to problems of a child. I was creating so much, that once, my brother wanted to make a deal of throwing away two of my old “projects” and trading it for one new because we simply didn’t have enough space to store all the things. As I was growing up, it felt like I was growing out of my creativity. I always loved to draw, paint, I even used to write my own stories about different characters. But I thought I would never be able to make money out of being someone who is just creative. Therefore, I have decided to study a 5-year gymnasium, and after that, I got accepted to college in Denmark for a Computer Science program without any prior knowledge about programming. After some time, I have realized it probably won’t be a thing for me, since I was the only one in the room who cared about the visuals. I managed to finish almost three semesters, when one of our teachers, Michael, asked us where we want to see ourselves in five years. Everybody said - I want to be a software developer -, but when we got to my turn, I said, I wanted to be a designer. And that’s when it has started. During the programming lessons, I started learning how to use Adobe Illustrator, and in December, right before the exam, I quit my studies. Before coming to Denmark and studying at our college, I had no clue that graphic design is a thing which you could actually make a living out of. So I applied for the program and got accepted. I remember this moment when I first entered the printing room at our school and the smell of the paper.
– I knew I was right.
