Julian George

Julian George has worked at the intersection of TV, food, publishing and socially led projects over the past 15 years. Creativity has always been at the core of it all and that continues through directing, producing, videography, photography, exhibitions & curating.  His career is defined by three key pillars: creating, building and connecting.

At Made By Humans, which recently celebrated 15 years, Julian continues to provide leadership, as the Creative Director. Such a milestone gave us a reason to reflect and rebuild. It is a creative agency that works with amazing clients and builds partnerships with new brands who are as passionate about shaping culture through creativity. Made by Humans focuses on unearthing untold stories and telling them honestly  and unapologetically through film, podcasts, books and images.

Julian founded The Future Plate in 2021. It is a culinary village, bringing together leading Black chefs of our time, culture carriers and makers of change. It is inspired by and draws from culinary ancestors, paying homage to traditional dishes but cooking and presenting them with contemporary culinary verve.

The Future Plate caters and curates events for the world’s most famous brands, private individuals and corporates, creating memorable experiences with the sole purpose of sharing culture through food.

Other services include consultancy, brand activations, menu development, brand partnerships and a management division which exists to amplify the visibility and work of trailblazing Black chefs who may otherwise be overlooked.

Beyond commercial endeavours The Future Plate is building a creative hub for the exploration and development of African and Caribbean dishes, developing a scholarship for Black chefs, launching a conference and working closely with Made By Humans to unearth food stories and tell them (before we lose them) through film, books, exhibitions and podcasts.
