Hello! I’m Julia Kearney and a resident of beautiful Ventura, California. I am a communications and design professional with over 25 years experience in graphic design, art direction, project management and food styling. I have spent the majority of my career with three corporate in-house advertising agencies in the roles of graphic designer, art director and production & design manager. I have also have had the opportunity of working on freelance projects for clients I consider friends, as well as fun (and sometimes unusual) projects of my own.
My love for great design began when I entered a back-to-school illustration contest in first grade and won. My artwork was printed full-size in the Ventura County Star-Free Press and displayed in the Buenaventura Mall (if you are familiar with either of those, then you are definitely a local) AND I was given 50 dollars! I was 6 years old and rich because of something I designed. I just had to figure out how to keep that gig going…
I am a graduate of San Diego State University with a B.A. in Graphic Design and Communications and have taken additional design, software and food styling courses at various institutions. But the most valuable education is the one I receive on a continuous basis, working to find the best solution to a visual problem and knowing the client is thrilled with the result. That is my passion.
Please contact me if I can help with your design needs, if you have a question or just want to discuss cooking (my other passion)!
