Hi, I'm Julie, a graphic designer living near Joshua Tree, California. My design career began, apparently, at the age of 13 with these hand-drawn type samples from 1982. My love of typography has not waned, though the choice of fonts has been updated. My interests lie in mathematics, science, aviation, and data visualization. I love sharing data and information through captivating and engaging design.
Why "CAMELS"? I thought it contained a good sampling of letterforms.
Sometimes I think the pinnacle of design is mid-century Dover mathematics book covers. I canvassed my studio wall in mathematics covers to keep me inspired.
In May 2015 I was featured as one of the "Top 60 Most Fascinating People of Los Angeles" by the LA Weekly in their People of 2015 issue. The article featured my company The Particle Zoo which brought the technical world of particle physics to a level understandable by the general public via whimsical, handmade plush toys.
