Welcome to QuMoo Design, my graphic design business. I'm Julie (also known as Queenie). I’m English and repatriated back to Guildford, Surrey, UK a couple of years ago after living in the Netherlands for over 10 years.
Whilst living in The Hague, it was a feature of life for international friends to leave and move on to new postings in another country. I was always searching for the perfect leaving gift/memento and could never find it so decided to create my own (my first print: The Den Haag Cityscape). Friends liked it, friends of friends asked for it and very soon I was selling various Netherlands travel prints and an expanding variety of other images (take a look at my blog on this). A wonderful way to start a business by finding a gap in the market!
Back in the UK it was difficult to find my feet as a Graphic Designer without any contacts and realised it was simpler to design UK travel prints and meet people that way - I could display my style and in turn it enabled me to meet people. Because of my prints and the people I met, I'm now able to provide entrepreneurs and small businesses with graphic design services to transform the look and feel of their business (whilst also expanding my portfolio of prints and stationery as I really enjoy it!).
I'm also a Director of Venture Adventures Ltd "The Business Start Up One Stop Shop". I have co-authored a Business Workbook (as seen in The Times and the Evening Standard), attended as Exhibitors the Business Show (Excel, London) and StartUp 2020 (Kings College, London) to explain how Venture Adventures, as a DIY business accelerator, can assist them. It's been a fabulous journey so far and I'm looking forward to see what 2020 brings! www.ventureadventures.co.uk
