As an industrial designer with an intuitive design sense and an inclination to wonder, I explore product and graphic design as a creative collaboration bringing people together and ideas to life.

Through the art of listening and inquiry, I am able to translate the intentions and desires of clients into creative design solutions. I continue to be delighted by the collaboration and insight that arises from this process.

Outside of designing, I can be found reveling in the Portland farmer's market scene, walking our highly enthusiastic Kelpie, and joining others in the practice of yoga and meditation. Trained in Mindful Schools and Imagination Yoga curriculums, I especially enjoy sharing the benefits of yoga with kids.

If you are curious about collaborating or would like to say hello, contact me to get in touch.  

"I adore working with Julie! She has an amazing ear and intuition for nailing what it is that I am trying to birth. Not only did she design my business card and website but as a consultant she has helped me articulate the vision for my business so it can sprout wings and fly. She is fast, clear and clean in her work. I highly recommend her services for graphic and web design, marketing and consulting."

Julie is a rare breed. At Mizuno she walked into a complex organization involving people from many different backgrounds, from different cultures, living in different places, with different views of success. She was quick to make sense of it all which enabled her to do what she does very well - tell great stories through fantastic design. Some of the most beloved shoes of Mizuno Running fanatics came from her. I hope to have the privilege of working with her again in the future.

Julie is the most amazing graphic designer! We have hired her for the past several years, and every time it is such beautiful work. Julie has the capacity to listen carefully to what you desire, AND the ability, knowledge to present you with something even better. I think her skill lies in her ability to “get” what you want, which is not always the case with designers. The final work is clean, full of feeling (but not busy-looking!), and very simple, which is very captivating to the eye. I could not recommend her more highly!
