About the project

Jen and Yvonne approached me mid 2022 and we have been creating weekly videos for the Simple Germany channel together since then.This has allowed the couple to free up their time in order to boost their creativity, elevate the brand, amp up the storytelling and experiment with different tweaks and formats. What I do for them in a nutshell:

Video production

Jen and Yvonne deliver the talking head video, along with their instructions, and I take care of the rest:

  • Editing
  • Grading
  • Graphic design
  • Animation
  • Sound design
  • Final mix and optimised export


As educational YouTubers, we started editing the videos ourselves, and it was a big time investment. We struggled to create visualizations to explain our concepts. We were scared to invest in a video editor because we did not know if the person would understand our style or it would mean that we would need to spend a lot of time on revisions. To our surprise, working with Julia has been the complete opposite. She was able to adapt to the style of our videos and added some magic to them to make them shine. Julia guided us in creating assets and workflows that made the editing process more efficient. She amazes us in every video. Julia is able to take a complex concept and create custom visualizations that breaks it down into an easy-to-understand way.

Julia has amazing energy, is highly professional, transparent, and her communication is stellar. She has delivered all the videos on time and we only need one revision per video! Hiring Julia has been an amazing investment. Her work has freed so many hours, which we can use to create growth strategies for our business.
