Julie Wildman is a highly regarded professional in the fields of graphic design, commercial lettering, calligraphy and workshops. She graduated with a BA in Graphic Design from Columbia College in Chicago and worked for many years with two Chicago design firms. She currently works as a freelance designer and lettering artist from her home studio near Chicago.
Thinking ‘outside the box’ when it comes to lettering is one of Julie’s favorite things to do. She also loves line, shape, color, texture, paper, ink, and paint and often can’t believe she gets to play with them for a living!
She enthusiastically shares her love of “beautiful writing” with young and old by teaching calligraphy for staff development classes, on-site promotional events, community programs and personal growth workshops throughout the Chicagoland area, U.S., and Canada. And now, with online Zoom classes, she has been teaching students from 20 different countries and counting.
