My holiday in Andalusia, Spain

I promised to show you some photos from my holiday in Andalusia, Spain. Like I told you in an earlier blog post, I went there the last week in May with my family. My dad had invited his 4 children, our families, his girlfriend and her son and his family to Andalusia, the southernmost part of Spain.

We spent time in Málaga, Rincón de la Victoria, Benalmádena, Seville, Ronda and Gibraltar – and looked at Morocco in Africa from the point of Gibraltar, where Europe ends. I missed out of Granada, which is only a great reason to go back! Thank you all so much for great recommendations. I had an amazing holiday. Wonderful combination of sun, history, mountains, beaches, water, culture and food.

I had an amazing holiday!

I’m off to Andalusia, Spain!

I’m off to 8 days in the Southern part of Spain, Europe.

My dad invited all of his kids – and their husbands / girlfriends and kids – on a “Let’s celebrate my retirement” vacation in Andalusia. We’ll be 15 in total. I love my brothers and sisters. And their families too. But I’m still glad I’ll have three days with just my dad and his girlfriend, before the rest of the clan arrives!

I don’t know, if I’ll do that much blogging down there. And if not at all; see you next Tuesday! I’ll show you some photos from the trip, when I get back. Or you can just follow me on Instragram: LauraJul

It’s my very first time in Málaga, Seville, Granada, Gibraltar, Ronda, Benalmadena, and so forth… So if you have any great recommendations or must sees, must tastes, must visits, please leave a comment here on the blog :) Thank you!

Happy Birthday Blog!

Today, May 10th, laurajul.dk is turning 2 years!
This could have been a blog post about my thoughts on blogging, the blog’s development, the stats, how I use the blog – and what it brings. Great stories about getting inspired and getting moved by people and their work and thoughts. And stories, that I’ve been told, from people who become moved, inspired or entertained by this blog. And how these stories make me feel.

It won’t be that blog post. Because I really need to go to bed now.

But! What I can tell, before I go to sleep…
I blog to share.
I think sharing is in my DNA. I think it’s in all of us.
I believe in sharing. I believe in the effect of it. What it does to people. And how is makes you dare more yourself, when people open up and share… their idea, their words, their feelings, art, design, joke, expression or their body.

I’ll wait with the ‘body sharing’ for tomorrow –> #fraekfredag

For today, I just want to wish the blog a happy 2 years birthday!
And say this:

DARE TO SHARE
- There’s no wrongs if you’re true to yourself

If you want to share something – or wish the blog a happy birthday – feel free to leave a comment.

Cathedral Patterns by David Stephenson

Photographer David Stephenson has shot this beautiful photo series called Cathedral Patterns. What you see is the ceiling of different cathedrals. Breathtaking!

Yesterday I spent 5 hours at the awesome church Grundtvigs Kirke in Copenhagen, because of my cousin’s daughters baptism. At the very end we were such few people left, that I couldn’t keep myself from lying on the floor and take a photo of thís church’s ceiling. You can check out my ceiling photo, another ceiling photo, - and then a photo I took of the church from the outside.

Relax In The Air asked me: What’s The Next Big Thing?

The awesome people from Swiss agency Relax In The Air found out I was going to SXSW in Austin in March. So were they. So after following each other on platforms like Twitter and Instagram, we were finally able to meet.

“Laura, can we please make an interview with you?”, they asked. “We don’t want to take all your time, so 5 minutes is good”…

… But then they sent me 3 questions:
One about what I think of SXSW. One about my blog and how I use it for my business. And then this: “What’s the Next Big Thing?”

As if I can talk for only 5 minutes about ideas and thoughts on next big things? ;)

So the interview turned into an hour of me talking… in one big mess as the thoughts entered the mind. But Relax In The Air has cut down the video to 40 minutes! Yay! And if you take the time to listen to it, there’s actually a great deal of stuff to think about, take in, or be inspired from. So please do :) And leave a comment here, if you want to.

It was a wonderful experience meeting Relax In The Air! Such super great people, that I’m sure, I’ll meet again.

Oh. And I actually had a high fever this evening we met. But I hide it quite well! Go watch.

Home from SXSW, Austin Texas and New York City

This is the reason for my blog being so quiet for the past two weeks! I just spent 10 days at SXSW in Austin, Texas – and then 4 days in New York City. I met with friends from all over the world. I met new people. I was inspired. I was overwhelmed. I was warm. And cold. And I got sick. But I still enjoyed as much as my body energy allowed me to. And maybe a little more.

Very soon the blog will be back to normal. Just like me. So stay tuned…

Der skal ske noget nyt …

… og nu kan jeg sige det højt.

Jeg er stoppet på mit arbejde
Det har været sjovt, spændende og også hårdt. Men de seneste måneder har jeg kedet mig og mistet min arbejdsglæde. Og det dur jo ikke. Det fortalte jeg ærligt til mine chefer. Og derfor har vi valgt, at jeg stopper, så jeg i stedet kan få noget tid til at finde ud af, hvor mine næste arbejdsmæssigt udfordringer skal komme fra.

Jeg har derfor nu tid til at møde spændende mennesker fra interessante bureauer og virksomheder. Høre, hvad deres udfordringer er. Se om det er noget, jeg vil kunne hjælpe med at løse. Og mærke, om det er udfordringer, der kilder min drivkraft.

En ting skal du vide …
Jeg brænder (på den gode måde), når jeg udvikler individualiseret kommunikation på de analoge, digitale og sociale platforme.

Så der er flere muligheder
Jeg kan se mig selv på et stort bureau eller i en stor virksomhed. Her kan jeg nemlig hjælpe med at skabe integreret kommunikation på tværs af kanaler, fordi jeg har en bred profil, kan tale flere sprog og spille på flere tangenter.

Jeg kan se mig selv på et mindre bureau eller i en mindre virksomhed. Her kan jeg nemlig hjælpe med at gøre os til en konkurrencedygtig spiller på markedet, som vores kunder går til, fordi de føler sig set, forstået og kommunikeret til individuelt og relevant.

Og måske kan jeg også se mig selv som selvstændig. Jeg kan i hvert fald ikke komme uden om, at LauraJul – både som person og som .dk – blev en person og en blog, der fik virkelig mange følgere allerede i 2010. LauraJul får mange henvendelser. Men i sidste ende gavner det altid den virksomhed, jeg er ansat i. Det gælder fx på områder som rekruttering, samarbejdspartnere, newbizz og branding.

Et kort sammendrag af mit CV

  • Jeg fik mit første job i reklamebranchen som 20-årig i 1999
  • Jeg har været på både små og store bureauer
  • Jeg har blevet nomineret til flere priser – og har skam også vundet guld
  • Jeg har lavet alt fra corporate identitet og branding over print, speak og radiospots til loyalitetsprogrammer, corporate- og kampagnesites og facebook apps
  • Jeg har arbejdet med kunder som fx TDC, Movia, Magasin, Falck, Alka, Telia, Lauritz Knudsen og Volkswagen


Det har jeg arbejdet med siden 1999


Mine titler og kaldenavne

Du kan se mit LinkedIn CV her

Har du lyst til at mødes?
Er du nysgerrig på de muligheder, som dit bureau eller virksomhed og jeg kunne ha’ sammen? Så lad os mødes til en kaffe og en snak, så jeg kan høre om jer – og så I kan lære mig bedre at kende.

Skriv til mig på
 laurajul@hotmail.com
eller ring 2265 5123

Du kan jo altid starte med at lure mig ud her på min blog, hvor jeg poster det, der inspirerer mig og får mig til at tænke, smile eller grine.

Vi ses derude!

Holiday Break

For the next week my blog and I will be doing nothing in this pretty space: My family’s summer house by the beach in Bornholm – the Danish island just South of Sweden.

Oh. That’s not exactly true. I will be doing something. I will play BezzerWizzer and Scrabble with my dear friends, who will join my vacation. I will barbecue on the terrace while watching the sun go down. I will wake up to the birds singing and the sounds from the ocean. I will dive and watch teeny tiny fish. I will proudly show off my childhood island. Take my friends to Hammershus, Allinge Røgeri and Svaneke Ismejeri. I will bring a book. And maybe I will read some of the pages. Because I won’t be much online.

And when I come back … I will share some of the moments with you here.
See you! And enjoy your summer.

// Laura

Why My Blog Has Been So Quiet Lately

My blog has been awfully quiet these past 12 days. I haven’t been much online. The reason why: because I went to Barcelona, Spain.

First I went to OFFF – a digital slash graphic design conference this year held in Barcelona. I was highly inspired. Met super great people. And had a whole lot of fun.

Then I stayed in the city and hung out with friends. I even met up with a friend, who I hadn’t seen in 15 years. I saw more of Barcelona too. I’d only been there once before. So during these days I got to know Barcelona. The streets, the short cuts – and the great places for eating, swimming and being amazed by incredible art and architecture.

Then it was time for Sónar. And oh, what fun! More lovely friends arrived. And Barcelona got filled with great music and a super atmosphere. We danced in the sun. We danced under the moon. We just danced.

It has truly been an inspiring holiday. I’ve met great people. I’ve grown closer to my friends. We have been naked.

Oh. And if I decide to go to Sónar next year, remind me to take a photo series of tattoos. I’ve never seen that many tattoos gathered in one place. One tattoo is stuck in my memory. The only beautiful tattoo I saw actually. A full series of drawings: ‘How to fold a bird’. Origami, you know. On the front of a beautiful man’s shoulder and arm. It kinda looked like this:

U2 Concert in Horsens, Denmark – 360 Tour

[wpvideo tyDAa5sD]
Sunday Bloody Sunday (Tilt your head)

[wpvideo 5lYQOU1V]
One (Tilt your head)


U2 went to Horsens. So did I
- because my sister had an extra ticket

U2′s 360° Tour came by Horsens, Denmark. Here’s what I thought:

1. I’m saying Yes! Because Snow Patrol is supporting
2. Thank you, U2, for a secure and superb performance
3. What an impressive, yet completely out of space stage
4. Wow! Can you really do that?! Awesome graphics and show design #technology
5. I love you, old hits! Thanks for performing way more old than new songs
6. Please go away you aggressive man standing right next to me
7. God, I miss listening to normal Danish #Jutland
8. Bono, you fail when crediting Crown Prince Frederik for being here and telling everyone that your friend, Helena Christensen, is in Denmark as well (for Fashion Week). I f*cking don’t care
9. Bono, I like your opinions on world peace and world politics. But cut it down a bit. I’m here for your music. Not your political work
10. Thank you, Laura, for wearing sneakers
11. Horsens, your shuttle bus transportation is a BIG TIME failure
12. Horsens, I’m never coming back, no matter what artist you manage to hire

U2: ★★★★★☆
Horsens: ★☆☆☆☆☆
