ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Julie DesJarlais

Social Media, Web & Graphic Designer, Art Director, Copywriter, Cat Whisperer

After graduating from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Graphic Design, I moved from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Madison, Wisconsin, and found employment at American TV and Appliance. 



I first started my time at American TV as a production artist and eventually was promoted to a Senior Graphic Designer position where I flourished for three years creating and designing ads, brochures, magazines and newspaper ads, Green Bay Packer and Wisconsin Badger ads, logo design, in-store displays, posters and graphics for American's delivery trucks. Soon enough, I was offered a position as an Advertising Department Manager where I oversaw six graphic designers and coordinated workflow between the advertising and marketing staff. As the years progressed, the Vice President of Advertising saw that my creativity was underused and he promoted me to the position of Art Director. The Art Directing position at American TV changed each week with different challenges in both print and video marketing.

 

I am currently working as a freelance designer. Each day is a new learning experience and I am always eager to tackle any new design challenge.

My lifelong graphic design goal is to create the best possible designs for any marketing or advertising challenge that I may face. Although my skill set is vast, my greatest expertise revolves in the world of brand identity design, content creation, and print collateral. My wish is to combine my knowledge and experience in these areas and to deliver the best creative edge to my clients and their audiences.
