The Full Story
Hello I'm Julie (also known as Queenie), I'm English and repatriated back to Surrey, UK in 2018 after living in The Hague, The Netherlands for over 10 years. QuMoo Design is my Graphic Design business that also specialises in vintage styled art travel prints a "perfect reminder of time well spent".
The vintage styled art travel prints are designed by me - they are individual and creative with intense and rich colours printed upon superior giclee fine art paper. I also offer graphic design services such as logos, branding kits and PDF's utilising Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop.
HOW IT ALL STARTED ... 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. A wonderful way to start a business by finding a gap in the market!
INTERESTING FACT …. One of QuMoo Design prints has been placed on permanent record at the Dutch archives. The print is of the European Police Offices in The Hague entitled “Europol”, this is such an honour, it makes me feel time in the Netherlands was well spent and I’ve left a real reminder of our time there: https://haagsgemeentearchief.nl/mediabank/beeldcollectie/detail/6c0df34f-b8c9-433e-ab5a-8012cead792d/media/eb4b871e-b0fa-8a9b-4747-be3eaeffb265?mode=detail&view=horizontal&q=europol&rows=1&page=1
HOW IT’S GOING …. when I returned to the UK I continued with the travel print theme, especially as we re-visited a lot of places that meant something to us - I now have over 50 designs of places around the UK.
ALSO... 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 (Aldwych, London) to explain how Venture Adventures, as a DIY business accelerator, can assist them.
