Julia Briggs
Creative lead, Blue Star Design

Julia earned a B.A. from the Columbus College of Art and Design in illustration, graduating in 1991 with honors. Stepping out in the middle of a recession, she opted to put illustration in her back pocket and jump into a wide array of design careers: advertising, publishing, and social expressions.

In 1999, Julia took the biggest jump of all and created a job for herself in her very own studio, Blue Star Design. Having experience with everything from illustration to packaging, to branding, to print to web, meant Julia would never be bored and her clients would benefit from the variety of her talents.

In 2007, she took one more small step for mankind and added a talented crew to the mix to offer clients a more integrated approach to design, marketing and idea generation.

Julia has over 20 years experience in the graphic design industry with working experience in advertising,
publishing and social expressions industries. Among her many successes, she helped to build the top selling homeschooling product, Comprehensive Curriculum, developed licensed products with Charles Schulz and Jim Henson Productions, and left a successful career at American Greetings. She graduated with honors from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1991 and has continued her education through Tri-C and is a graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program.

Julia is the creative lead at Blue Star Design. She handles a majority of client relations and sales for Blue Star.
