As a long-time volunteer and leader in the Ruth Asawa SF School of the Arts community, I have watched the school's image and reputation grow exponentially with Julie's guidance and expertise. From a podunk public high school to a nationally-recognized arts institution, SOTA and the San Francisco Unified School District have benefited greatly from Julie's ability to work with people from many backgrounds on myriad projects: she asks questions, helps to formulate the big picture, then gets there with every communication tool in existence. Julie's work is brilliant and speaks for itself. Julie communicates. Anne Yanow, Arts Education Advocate, San Francisco
I worked with Julie during my three year tenure with the Band and Orchestra program at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts. Julie was instrumental in creating a professional brand for Asawa SOTA, and a customized brand for each department. We would have short conversations to discuss the feel and mood of each concert, and her creative genius would turn my few ideas into fantastic and fun artwork, beautiful programs, and very successful exposure via social media. I’ve never worked with anyone more energetic, hardworking, and passionate, and I know she will be an asset to any organization that is lucky enough to have her. Brad Hogarth, Associate Professor of Wind Ensemble & Conducting, San Francisco State University | Music Director & Conductor, Contra Costa Wind Symphony
Julie brings more than great artistic and graphic skills to her work. She provides a holistic view of how to plan, position and promote each project to achieve maximum exposure. The result is a cohesive marketing program that beautifully captures the essence of the piece, with each element elegantly rendered to produce maximum results. Plus, she is just a great person to work with! Cynthia Francis, Board Member, SF Shakespeare Festival | COO, Open Cities, Inc.

I have been working with Julie Glantz for the last 5 years on a project by project basis. She is exactly who you want to have around, not only does she burst with incredible creativity that she brings to every project, but she also solves everyone's last minute problems as well. I cannot tell you how many times I or one of my colleagues have made a colossal mistake and she has ridden in on her white horse to save the day. Immeasurably useful on that front, but where her real strengths lay is in the ability to sculpt a dialogue with the public, and to generate actual buzz both within and outside of a community. She is able to communicate effectively with people from all walks of life, and people respond. I highly recommend working with her.

I have worked with Julie on many projects over the past four years - she is creative, talented and professional. She pays great attention to detail, gets my vision and is open to my ideas which makes her easy to work with on all levels. The end product is always way beyond my expectations. Julie is the first person I consult when starting a project - she gets it! Paula Dinnell, Sip Tea House, San Francisco
I’ve worked alongside Julie Glantz for more than 5 years. She has been responsible for creating and maintaining our school’s website, designing promotional materials for more than 75 events annually for individual departmental shows, and managing the publicity for those events. It has been my pleasure to collaborate with her, to ensure the professional look of our school’s public image and art direction. Before Julie came on board, we did what we could to get the word out and fill the theater. Her artwork and marketing strategy changed everything. Every year, a large part of our success is due to Julie’s professional touch and extreme attention to detail on all of our marketing and promotional materials. Before she came along none of this even came close to the professionalism that she brought to the table. Paul Kwapy, Technical Theater Director, Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts
As a new department, Julie helped us establish an audience, a brand and a following. Her keen eye to detail concerning both design and copy, allowed me to step back and focus my efforts elsewhere. She is a true collaborator who works from her giant heart. Her work is beautiful, creative, unique and clean. She has a no-nonsense approach that makes it easy to work with her. She takes direction well and I always look forward to working with her. Monina Sen Cervone, World Music Director, Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts
Julie is fantastic. I have worked with her on several projects over the years, and every time she wows me with her ability to execute an idea with such beauty. She is amazing at being collaborative while also guiding her client through her unmatched graphic design experience. I feel confident as a client that even my craziest idea will be attempted, and more times than not executed better than I ever could have imagined. On top of that, Julie is an incredible artist filled with stories, humor, and a deep understanding of what to means to create art. Ryan Doyle, Singer, Songwriter, Performer
It is a pleasure to work with Julie Glantz! She is a creative, passionate artist - an energetic, collaborative, and humorous colleague - and a highly effective publicist.
