Meet Julia Ossenbruegge, who is responsible for Craft Scotland's marketing strategy.
As Marketing Manager for Craft Scotland I am responsible for planning and delivering Craft Scotland’s marketing and communication activities.
My time at Craft Scotland is spent planning and delivering our marketing campaigns. My role also involves exploring new technology and opportunities for online marketing and growth.
I look after the Craft Scotland website and our social networks - which both aim to showcase contemporary craft from Scotland. I also promote our own projects and events and send out our monthly newsletter.
I connect with people and places online for Craft Scotland, forging relationships and creating opportunities.
I started my career in arts and event management when I was a student and it has been a passion ever since. I studied Modern History and Film and whilst completing my Master’s degree in Newcastle I fell in love with Edinburgh and moved here in 2008. I spent my first festival season working as Marketing & Press Assistant for the Edinburgh International Book Festival before I took up contract roles in financial services, higher education and international recruitment. From 2009 to early 2016 I also served on the council of the Edinburgh Film Guild, the world’s longest continually running film society.
I am thrilled to be back in the arts and really enjoy promoting Scottish craft.
I love a good picture book and once made friends with the Gruffalo.
Coffee in the morning and a glass of red at night.
