My name is Julie McNamara and I am Graphic Designer and Illustrator born and raised in Philadelphia, PA where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Tyler School of Art. I am 21, a Taurus, animal lover and iced coffee addict.
From as far back as I can remember I have loved to draw, design and conceptualize. As a kid I would design fake magazine spreads and write and illustrate little books that I would try to sell out front of my house to any passerby. It was in a high school art class when I had to design a cereal box that I truly discovered my love for design and decided to pursue it. I always get excited when I am presented with a new design problem to solve. My favorite part of design is doing research and thinking up creative solutions and ideas. There is no better feeling then seeing one of your ideas come to life.
Outside of design I love to read, play video games, watch movies (especially horror) and get outdoors whenever I can, whether it be the beach or going camping. I have a black cat that I rescued when I volunteered at a cat shelter and he is my pride and joy. I take pleasure in the simple things such as a good meal, spending time with friends, and making others laugh. I try to never take myself, and most things, too seriously.
