Julie Risko Neely
Ask Julie for a design solution and she will first ask you a broad range of questions about your market, goals, vision, strengths, and weaknesses. Designing is so much more than sitting down at a computer and knowing the software.
What Julie loves most about creating is collaborating: listening to clients, learning what sets them apart from competitors, and working with them to understand their design needs. It’s through this dialogue that new and fresh ideas are formed, and successful visual design solutions are forged.
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Julie has been delighting in the creative collaboration process for more than fifteen years: ten years as a creative director and art director at a Chicago publishing company, and five years as an independent freelance designer. Julie is also a part-time adjunct professor at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois.
