9 people have recommended Julie
"SupabenjaDigital has been working with Julie for the last 3 years.

She's also a highly skilled catalog and print designer. Working with Julie is just a no brainer. Looking forward to the next project with her."
— Benjamin Gil, was Julie's client
"Julie is a consummate professional. She is detail oriented, focused on customer service, and a very driven individual. Julie is always pushing herself to a higher standard, consistently thinking out of the box to bring new creative and innovative ideas to the table for discussion. Her follow through is exceptional. I highly recommend Julie for her creative thinking, execution, and customer service. It was a pleasure working with Julie."

"Julie is a true gem in the vast sea of Art Directors out there. She has tremendous vision and knows both what she wants and how to convey it to others. Without a doubt one of the finest Art Directors I have worked with."
— Gary Duma, Color Retoucher, Quad Graphics, was a consultant or contractor to Julie at Boy Scouts of America, Supply Group
"I have had the privilege to work with Julie on the Boy Scouts Catalogs. Each and every Catalog has it's own unique challenges and Julie always manages to kick it up a notch. She is a true team player and can coordinate all aspects of merchandisers, costs, marketing direction and all outside vendors like she was just juggling bowling pins with the greatest of ease. Most of these photo shoots are intense with early morning locations, models, weather issues and more. Then there are studio days and if something isn't working like she has directed, she is redesigning it on the fly. We have literally taken hundreds of pictures and I am always amazed at her stunning ability to use art and design for a beautiful end result. She is such great fun and has a contagious laugh and I would be delighted to work with her again. I highly recommend her for your next project."

We have worked together since she was a full time employee at Boy Scouts of America and she continues to hire me as an independent designer through her company. Julie is just very good at what she does."
