Julius graduated with a BA in Journalism in 2000 and began his career as a reporter. But he developed an interest in design, so he switched to doing newspaper layouts. This experience convinced him he was meant to be a designer, so he enrolled at the Academy of Art University in 2004.
In 2008, he graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. His design experiences include working at Clif Bar, Landor, and Jump Associates where he has tackled packaging, print, and web design projects.
