Julie Hanan's Profile

About

Hi!

My name is Julie and I am an Invitation and Graphic Designer from the Chicagoland area. I graduated in 2007 from the University of Illinois with my BFA in Industrial Design. After college, I started working as an Interior Designer for a large furniture retailer, but unfortunately I was laid off in 2009 due to the bad economy.

Around this time, some close friends of mine had recently gotten engaged so I offered to help design their wedding invitations and related stationery. After I finished their invitations, my name quickly spread to other people who were also engaged.

I heard about Etsy and found that there was a lack of invitations with high-style and excellent materials. I thought that I could create a shop to sell the high-end invitations I had designed. It was in March 2010…

Hi!

My name is Julie and I am an Invitation and Graphic Designer from the Chicagoland area. I graduated in 2007 from the University of Illinois with my BFA in Industrial Design. After college, I started working as an Interior Designer for a large furniture retailer, but unfortunately I was laid off in 2009 due to the bad economy.

Around this time, some close friends of mine had recently gotten engaged so I offered to help design their wedding invitations and related stationery. After I finished their invitations, my name quickly spread to other people who were also engaged.

I heard about Etsy and found that there was a lack of invitations with high-style and excellent materials. I thought that I could create a shop to sell the high-end invitations I had designed. It was in March 2010 that I decided to turn this hobby into a career, and established Julie Hanan Design as an official business.

Over the years, my business has changed and in 2012 I introduced our "Build Your Invite" collection, which allow clients to create a semi-custom invitation specific to their budget and unique style. My team and I have worked with thousands of clients for Weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Corporate Events and more.

My goal is to work as a team to set the perfect tone for each event. Our hands may put the product together; but the style, look and feel reflect each client's ideas and influence. With so many amazing paper and embellishment options, it only makes sense to create an introduction that is truly customized!
