Around the world, young people travel across counties and countries in pursuit of a higher education. Whether it's biology or business, English or economics, universities and college across the globe open their doors to those that want to open their minds to their chosen area of study.  I have had the privilege to be able to collaborate with a manufacturer in the USA that is dedicated to creating wonderful product ranges. Together we have collaborated in making amazing product that celebrates the unique campus culture and iconic landmarks of a specific institution. Over the last three years we have created over 300 designs and ranges, which have become best seller ranges for gift shops and book stores in the collegiate sector.  Here are some of my favourites ....

 California Berkeley canvas tote bag by Julia Gash

This black and yellow Cal State Long Beach design is filled with Californian sunshine.  I love mixing up local flora and fauna with collegiate sport icons and landmark buildings. Go Beach!

Cornell University water bottles by Julia Gash

My design for Cornell University was one of my first and is one of the biggest selling ranges across America.  The success of the collection prompted a second design, celebrating the local community of Ithaca in upstate New York.  Favourite is the ice hockey player and Mr Cornell himself.

Middle Tennessee University blanket and mug by Julia Gash

Stay warm with this wonderful, woven throw and steaming hot drink in a ceramic mug printed with my Middle Tennessee State University artwork. My linear artwork really lends itself to the weave technique used in the blanket making and I love curling up under mine when autumn comes rolling in.

Auburn University Canvas Tote Bag by Julia Gash

One of my favourite colourways to work with is orange and blue. I just love the joy and confidence of this colour combo, which reflects the positivity of Auburn University.  I discover so much about the university's sporting icons and culture when I create artworks and the high stepping marching band master has me in stitches. I love the contrast between him and the flowering lily pad below, both of which help to create the unique character that is Auburn University.

Northern Arizona University design by Julia Gash
And my Northern Arizona University illustration is typical of the art that I create for universities across America ... local landmarks, iconic university architecture, sporting mascots, state symbols and favourite cultural pursuits. Gosh, when is Stew Fest? I want to go ... I love stew! 
If you are a university, college or school and would like to collaborate with me on a custom product range then just email me and I'll connect you to my licensing partner wherever you are in the world.

This is England
This is England

April 25, 2022

This weekend we celebrated St George's Day in England. It's a day which for many, including myself, passes unnoticed, squished between Easter and the next public holiday in the first week of May, which naturally gathers more attention. The complex, rich cultural heritage of England continues to evolve and with that, so does my art ...

Viva Ukraine!

It is inconceivable for me to continue to discover and draw places around the world without being affected by the invasion of Ukraine and catastrophic consequences of Russia’s act of aggression against one of its neighbours.
