The Creative Mind
The vision for Designpony came from Julie’s wide range of experience in the graphic arts. Upon graduating with honors with a degree in Fine Arts, she put her visual skills through their paces in Chicago as an exhibit designer, a publication and information graphics designer, and as a graphic artist in an interior architecture firm. After migrating west to Oregon with her husband, photographer Bob Huff and their 3 cats, Julie joined a startup to design software for kids. Ever-evolving, Julie next had a stint consulting in Silicon Valley during the dot-com era. Many frequent flyer miles later, it was time to open her own shop and offer clients her very best. That’s been her mantra for the years since founding Designpony – and all the while she’s been drawing and painting.
