Julie was born in South Carolina, but grew up in sassy little Saxapahaw, North Carolina. Always a lover of crafting, coloring, and creating art, she earned her Associate’s degree in Advertising and Graphic Design at Alamance Community College.
Excited about entering the design industry here at PIP, Julie will work on a variety of prepress and designing projects and helps maintain social media accounts.
Past projects have included creating a poster and brochure for the Alamance Burlington Middle School, designing a pop-up invitation for an exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Art, illustrating a fairy garden information board for the horticulture department at the State Fair, and executing the layout for the Explorer Literary Magazine.
Her favorite volunteer projects have been designing a t-shirt for the Humane Society and another for the Student Planet Career Days, as well as illustrating two coloring / reading books for a primary school in Malawi.
Free-time hobbies include drawing realistic graphite portraits, painting and playing around with different media, capturing images with her camera, making music on a variety of stringed-instruments, and mastering new skills, at the moment, juggling.
