Julia Machotka
Digital Media Instructor

Julia Machotka

BA Art History UCSC; AS Digital Media Cabrillo College
With Cabrillo College since 2018

I ran a creative agency out of San Francisco for over 15 years before returning to my home base of Santa Cruz in 2016. I have a solid background in web, mobile and print design using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Animate and, recently, AfterEffects.

I'm passionate about digital design and user experience and am toying with the design of wearable technology. I'm currently pursuing a micromasters degree in UX from the University of Michigan where I'm drawing from the experience of my long career as a Creative Director as well as my educational background from UCSC and Cabrillo.

My love of writing and illustrating children's books set me on a path to conquer the world of social media in order to promote my children's books. I am excited to bring out all those skills in students of DM57 "Social Media and
Self-promotion". See also
