Julia Schaber is a Sacramento-based Graphic Designer, devoted to details and inspired by minimalism. Her drive to create compelling visual stories for mission-driven brands and the people they represent is born out of empathy, social conscience, and a passion for art. She enjoys translating stories and aspirations into unique and thoughtful visual systems.
Julia earned a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communication Design from San Francisco State University, where she acquired a deeply-rooted knowledge of all things design—branding, color theory, typography, hierarchy, composition, layout, and production processes for both print and digital.
While earning her degree, Julia developed a passion for local food, sustainability and customer service as a cashier with Bi-Rite Market, and simultaneously held two internships: one with a screen-printing shop (Ape Do Good), and the other with a bicycle advocacy nonprofit (SF Bicycle Coalition). She was hired on staff as the sole Graphic Designer with the Bicycle Coalition, which fostered a strong do-it-yourself mentality. She has spent the remainder of time since learning from other designers with in-house creative teams for commercial packaging production (Plum Organics), and brand design strategy (Callisto Media).
Julia values insights from plants, animals, and nature; she prefers to spend her time outdoors with her pup, kayaking, hiking, camping, cooking, gardening, fermenting, yoga-ing, baking, crafting, creating, and continuously learning.
