Founder, CEO, Product Manager, UX/UI Designer


I am a Berlin-based UX/UI Designer and former founder of Artconnect.com, the largest online creative community in Berlin with 35k monthly active users. In 2020, I sold my venture and embarked on my true passion: UX, UI Design and Front-end Development.

I am currently working as a UX Design tutor at CareerFoundry and freelancing for companies such as Mister Spex, Setting, Duxer (Ikea, Userzoom), and creating a product from scratch with KEA. On the side, I organize Design+Friends, a monthly Berlin Designer meetup...

With a background in Fine Arts and 10 years of experience in product design, communications strategy, and management, I can offer a balanced combination of structure and creativity while working in a diverse team. Being a founder of a business has given me unique insight into complex projects and what affects their success. I’ve also learned to be resourceful and innovative to find solutions that work for customers. Having an education on the technical side, gives me a deeper understanding on how to build websites that are easy to develop.

In my free time, you will find me chatting with my friends, creating new recipes, fermenting food, growing my plants, or dancing to new and old music (while cooking too!). I ride my bike everywhere and don’t want to own a car. I love playing with my kids and answering their questions about the world. I read anything Ican get my hands on related to health, psychology, company culture, technology, business, and socio-political issues… or just anything that catches my attention.

I am keen on keeping my private life “analog” and share it with my family and friends IRL 🙂 If you want to contact me, write me an email at hi@juliamaribernaus.com or connect with me on Linkedin.

What others say about me

Super project, excellent work! On-time and above scope! 👍
Júlia very quickly and independently got to grips with the brand, the target audience and the product. Besides her skills in UX/UI design - already praised by others here - I would also like to highlight her linguistic sensitivity. She not only understands many languages, but also knows how to implement language for good UX. We would use Júlia's support and expertise again anytime - highly recommended!

Alexander Ständert

Product Owner at Mister Spex

I had the pleasure to tutor Júlia when she was a UX Design student at CareerFoundry. I was immediately impressed by her eagerness to learn, her rigorous dedication to quality and her sharp eye for details. From her previous digital ventures she gained a practical understanding for the business requirements a product has to fulfill and incorporated that into her designs. On top of showing high initiative, she was an absolute joy to work with, radiating positivity and warmth. This energy clearly shines through in her designs, too. In my humble opinion, any product team will be lucky to have her as a designer and colleague

Christian Ernst

Product Designer and Tutor at CareerFoundry

Julia is a very talented and creative product manager. I had the chance to work closely with her on Artconnect, and I was very impressed not only at her managerial skills but at how well she understands how to create a great UX. Her vision and work on creating an online platform for creatives and artists will have a lasting positive impact on the entire artistic scene. She is a very efficient manager, a great leader and a fun person to work with.

Full-Stack Developer

Julia has been ahead of times and innovator with her Artconnect platform, the go-to arts website in Berlin. It’s through her company that we first connected via a contemporary art partnership and then furthering collaborations via kulturspace, my creative agency. Julia saw the need way before anyone else and its for that reason shes been an innovator in connecting the creativity community in Berlin, no easy feat! She is a welcomed partner and I’m proud to run in the same local crew.
