JULIE, HOLY GUACAMOLE THESE ARE AMAZING. At first I only saw the first one and I was already ecstatic and then I saw there were more!!!!! Is there any way to combine the slushee icon with the first one? We just love that one and I think that would make it perfect. You’ve honestly outdone yourself. We love all of them like can we just buy them all 😂 These make me want to start more businesses so you can just design more logos for us.

"Julie is awesome! I had hired another graphic designer (a recommendation) and she totally failed to get what I do or what I wanted. Julie picked up my project and instantly got me what I needed. I absolutely LOVE my new logo and business cards. They are so me! She's fast, smart and spot on. I'll be recommending We Cre8 to my clients."

Myrna Begnel, Artessa Marketing

Stacy Kolios, 900 North Michigan Avenue Shops

“After working over 20 years for both Fortune 100 companies and small businesses, Julie is a refreshing joy to work with in the creative community. Her experience, attitude, and vision have helped our client La Buona Vita come to life with a new brand identity campaign that is currently being launched in the western suburbs of Chicago. Quality work that is done right the first time has helped our clients articulate who they are and what they stand for to both consumers and other businesses. Our firm strongly recommends her services to businesses looking to raise the bar on their brand. Simply put, she is among the elite creative designers in Chicago.”

Chris Comes, Ripson Group

“We Cre8 Design is the definition of a design company. Julie is quick, understanding and has beautiful work. Not only is the website easy to use which is a huge plus for me but her quick response time and number of equally great options for designs is amazing. Julie recently did a 30 year logo for my company and everyone loves it! It is a beautiful design and I will definitely be using We Cre8 Design again, and again and again!”

Jordan Mihalik, ELITeXPO Cargo Systems

Julie and her team at We Cre8 Design were thorough, creative, and understanding throughout the process of creating a new logo for the Christkindlmarket. They interpreted our feedback perfectly and delivered a beautiful end result that we are sure to use for years to come. Thank you!
