I'm Julie Milliken and I am a graphic designer specializing in non-profit, and start-up communications, with expertise in branding and logo design. I am especially skilled at listening to you and your business' needs. Are you on a journey of self-discovery and figuring out what is next for you and your business? Are you refocusing your business and wanting a make-over?
I am here to help you. I am adept at designing flyers, infographics, ads and logos – you name it – that speak directly to your audience. I am client-focused in creating clear and focused graphics that will help you generate your ideal new customers, and create more business and exposure for your company or cause. I am always trying to make the world a better place. Helping businesses get their problems solved through graphic design is how I am playing my little part.
With over 18 years experience, I have worked in the advertising and marketing departments of large-scale for-profit companies, national non-profits, and small local businesses. I have a background in editing and proofreading and I am certified in Adobe Creative design products and Wordpress. I learned design on the job and by taking classes at Pratt and Parsons art schools in my beloved NYC. I have a BA in English/Writing, and a minor in Spanish from Emory University.
In my free time, I love to walk my sweet Schnoodle rescue dog, read fiction and listen to non-fiction (and We Can Do Hard Things & Smartless podcasts). I also adore food - eating at new restaurants is my jam, along with traveling to new countries and swimming in the ocean. I am a mom to two teenagers that I am amazed by, one who is going off to college in the Fall. I am passionate about literacy, gun control and food equity. I am a member of Congregation Rodef Shalom, The Alliance of Professional Women, and I volunteer with Reading Partners.
