creative direction • styling • social strategy


Hey, it’s me, Julia Wheeler. I’m a stylist, creative director and marketing consultant.

I've worked in digital marketing since the MySpace days (before smart phones and Instagram algorithms). I've also run my own e-commerce business for long enough to know how to make the most out of every photo shoot. Creating content that can be used for email, social media, print promotional campaigns and trade shows is how I've stayed afloat with my business in a cluttered social media market. Since I've mastered this for my own business, I've also been able to offer my services to others. Here’s a little bit of what i’ve done for my own brandS + others:

  • Photo shoot styling

  • Brand creative direction

  • Social media strategy

  • Interior design

  • Product placement

  • Event coordination + hosting

  • Connecting people. I just really want us to all be friends. I love lifting other people up and think we’re all better off working together.

Whether you're a small brand with a small budget or a big brand with a big budget, I can get creative at any level. 

I've worked with major corporations like Nike, adidas & Red Bull as well as many large surf brands, including brands like Nixon and Brixton.

For almost 15 years, I have helped brands understand an audience and then create compelling marketing campaigns to reach that market.  

It all boils down to content.

  • I can create blog posts that will positively impact SEO and extend your reach

  • I know how social media can create meaningful conversations and ultimately drive sales

  • I can help you tell a story through creative direction, styling and photography

Julia is not only digitally savvy, she also comes with an inherent sense of what’s cool. This trend-spotting ability married with her experience in social and digital makes her an extremely valuable asset for any project. She can not only ideate around content but also identify touch points that will reach the right people and ultimately get the right results. She’s truly the full package, whose output is comparable to what typically comes from a combination of media, creative and strategy minds.

Julia is a triple threat in the marketing world. She thinks strategically, executes diligently, and somehow manages to stay in front of the ever-changing social & digital world in terms of trends, tools, and effective campaigns
