Hallo & Welcome!

I'm Julia Bakay,

I support organisations with Visual Summaries and Visual Keynotes, using my skills and talents to translate their message into accessible, engaging, and useful visual maps! I either create these illustrations during events I'm invited to, or we work together over several weeks to build these visuals.

I'm an Artist, an Optimist, a Creative Spirit.

I spent my early 20s taking creative roles all over Europe and the US, enjoying wonderful scholarships and seeking any opportunities to learn something new. ​I went with the flow, going wherever the currents of curiosity took me.


There I was, with a diverse range of work experiences, three languages, awesome practical life skills, and more degrees than I could ever need...


Then, I found my passion...

What I do

As a Graphic Recorder & Facilitator, I’m always exploring how my creative thinking skills & artistic talents can benefit organizations and individuals.


Whatever professional or personal projects people find me with, I can find the most effective and aesthetic methods to communicate their ideas, intentions, and motivations.

My main focus being... ​


  • Graphic Facilitation,
    as a Visual Thinking Partner, I help

    • think through, simplify or map out ideas and processes

    • design creative workshops

    • translate your message into simple and powerful graphics

  • Live Graphic Recording / Scribing is a moment-by-moment capture and summary during live events. Focusing on distilling the information from sessions to create a visual map of the key ideas

  • Live Illustration is a a visual summary of the entire day, or across multiple days, of an event. Illustrating scenes, activities, and key take-aways

  • Visual note-taking can be based on audio and video recordings for more elaborate & refined graphics

  • Artistic capturing - key ideas captured, linked, and visualized in a unique (Julia) style. More of a free-flowing and artistic method of capturing the feel and ambience of a conversation

  • Strategic Visuals / Infographics are a result of our visual collaboration, such as mapping journeys, visualizing strategies, or visually organizing the contents of written documentation

  • Rich pictures - dense visual summary of a complex process or a long journey

  • Illustrations - a visual representation of information with little to no text

What are my rates for these visual services?

(Graphic Recording and Infographics)

Each client, event and project is different, therefore,
my rates are quite flexible. 

They depend on...


  • Your budget

  • Hours the project takes

  • In-person or remote

  • The style and approach, such as how detailed you'd like it and in what format

If you have a budget in mind, we can tailor the scope of the project around it. I'm always looking for opportunities to work with amazing people and organizations;

I'm keen on building great relationships and I appreciate long-term collaborations.
