Senior Art Director

Whippet Whisperer

Paper Empress

Dancer to Her Own Drum

Judy is as talented an artist as they come. To every project, she applies her inspired and highly technical design acumen that she built over decades of experience. In the office, she brings as much warmth as her wily whippet, aptly named Sunshine.

What’s your favorite thing about being a designer?

Creating designs that are functional (and do their job) and that are also beautiful is really fulfilling. I enjoy the process of a project from infancy to completion, finding solutions to the assorted challenges that crop up along the way. I don’t like choosing which concepts make the cut—that’s why I like the team at DH. We bounce ideas off each other, refine concepts, work as a group. Everybody has a different perspective, whether creative writing, or public relations, or an industry-specific lens. That helps us pick the best options for our clients.

What keeps you busy when you’re not in the office?

Currently, a lot centers around the four-legged family member, our whippet Sunshine. We participate in agility, lure coursing, canine behavioral seminars, and coming up with new tricks. I also enjoy hiking, bicycling, dance, playing music—West African traditional rhythms, Afro-Cuban rhythms and sometimes piano. I also love to spend time on the Pend Oreille River and hunting for funky vintage stuff. And I enjoy collaborating creatively (OK, maybe sometimes art directing) with my husband, who is a commercial photographer.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

Don’t noodle it to death. (Not that I follow it.)
