Images Inter Alia
Julia fell in love with Perth years ago on a visit with family here and returned as a permanent resident and business owner.
Although she has been working at Images for over three years, she took over as owner of Images Inter Alia in July, and says her new career is exactly what she wants to do with her life.
Offering printing and graphic design work, she says she knows she is not the only company of this nature in this market, but says she prides herself on her company being different. She ensures a quick turn-around, and one-on-one sessions with clients to make sure they are happy with the end result.
Julia has the unique ability to make customers feel welcome, whether they are working on a project or just coming by to share a laugh on their coffee break.
With a master’s degree in marketing, Julia is able to assist clients with advertising and promotional ideas.
A woman of many talents, Julia makes use of a large space on the second floor of the building, operating a language school.
Lessons in Spanish, French, Hebrew and Russian are offered at The Linguist Club. English as a second language is also offered.
“I welcome the idea of bringing new languages and cultures to the area,” says the Russian-born business owner. “It’s not as academic as much as [courses of] cultural interest.”
Julia enjoys her new life in Perth. After graduating in Bulgaria, she visited Robin and his wife, Pam, who are relatives. “I was introduced to life in Perth and I loved it.”
She returned to Bulgaria, married, had a daughter (Nikol) and, after 10 years, is back in Perth. “I think I made the right decision. I love the job I do right now. I have never regretted coming to Canada, and especially to Perth. I’m very happy to be part of this community.”
