Julie Ridge opened her design studio in 1990 in Norwalk Connecticut after leaving a six year tenure as art director for Cowles Business Media. Julie specialized in information graphics before they were a thing, drawing charts and diagrams for trade publications and consumer magazines such as Popular Science, Vegetarian Times and Scholastic Magazine throughout the 1990s.

Julie moved the studio to St. Louis Missouri in 1995. She works with small businesses, large corporations, and not-for-profit institutions throughout the United States on a variety of materials for both print and web.

Julie is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts with a BFA in Media Arts and a member of the Graphic Artists Guild.

“I’ve worked with a number of graphic designers over the years, and Julie is one of the best. Besides knowing how to make things look good, she has a special knack for getting to the core of the communication goals that the work is intended to achieve. She also knows how to do just what’s needed and not go overboard. I like to call her the Goldilocks of graphic design – not too much, not too little, but just right.”
