What I do

Juilette Mitchell

I work with architects and designers, helping them communicate. I’m a writer and editor with a particular interest in architecture, and I’m a firm believer in the power of words to change people’s minds and make things happen.

If you’re putting together an award submission or a bid and you can’t quite get the words to flow, I’d love to hear from you. Or if your website stalled a year or so ago, I can help you get it back on track.

  • I’ll pinpoint what’s different about your practice.
  • I’ll make you sound approachable and human.
  • I’ll draw out the stories that bring what you do to life.
  • I’ll find words to draw people in.

I feel very strongly about changing the way architects write – and talk – about their work, and I’m always happy to give people new ways of approaching a blank page. I run in-house writing workshops for architects (which can be as long or as short as you like), and these are, as it turns out, about much more than just writing. In the words of Rhys Cannon of Gruff: ‘an excellent approach to design and not just the writing’.

I also run writing workshops for the Museum of Architecture, and in May 2018 I ran an interactive session at the RIBA Future Leaders event.

Here are some of the people, practices and organisations I’ve worked and collaborated with since Architypal took shape in 2017…
