As a designer with an inclination to wonder, I have explored a broad range of medium. Leveraging over a decade of footwear design experience and solution-oriented skills, I bring clarity and creativity to your graphic, product or web design project.

Through the art of listening and inquiry, I help to distill your ideas, stories and message.  This focus allows us to amplify your intentions with compelling design solutions that skillfully connect you to your audience.  

Whether you are looking to refresh your branding or bring a new service to life, I specialize in translating your vision into reality.

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



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!

At first, I thought I could create my own marketing materials, however those materials didn’t convey what I’d imagined and I realized I needed help. What a joy to work with Julie! Not only did she bring to life my ideas, but she helped me become clear about my brand. I recommend her to all of my colleagues, especially when they admire my business cards, logo, flyers ... etc. I feel so grateful to have found someone who understands my vision so well.

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.

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 logo and business card, 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.
