Julie oversees Gardner’s Brand and Marketing efforts by overseeing new business engagements, as well as driving design strategy and branded environments for select projects. In many ways, she’s been an extended member of our team for years, working on branding for us and several of our projects well before she officially joined our Studio. Prior to joining Gardner, she worked as a Design Director leading brands and strategy teams for consumer goods, non-profits, real estate, and hospitality clients. She brings a range of creativity to our Studio, and it’s her out-of-the-box way of thinking and optimism that we admire. If there’s something that can be done better, she wants to figure out how. Married to her college sweetheart, she and her husband have two children and are constantly rearranging schedules for t-ball or soccer practices.
