Julie is responsible for editing and proofing the graphics at Graphic News, and also acts as editor for GN Newsahead (along with Jennifer Anderson) and On This Day databases.With a degree in English and a love of the arts in general and theatre in particular, Julie began her career teaching English and Drama. After a change of direction she joined Graphic News at the launch of the service, adapting her linguistic skills from the needs of schoolchildren to keeping a bunch of visually literate but verbally dyslexic artists on the straight and narrow.

Aided by an awe-inspiring general knowledge, Julie ensures that the graphics both look good and read correctly, combining proofing with research, editing web pages and studio management.

Her love of the arts is shared by her husband Tony Mullins (ex-Art Director of the Observer) who also acts as a consultant designer and sometime contributor to Graphic News.
