Child Welder, 1943

“A welder at a boat-and-sub-building yard adjusts her goggles before resuming work, October, 1943. By 1945, women comprised well over a third of the civilian labor force (in 1940, it was closer to a quarter) and millions of those jobs were filled in factories: building bombers, manufacturing munitions, welding, drilling, and riveting for the war effort.”

Testimonial
A friend of mine referred me to Julie, and we instantly hit it off. I was immediately impressed by her creativity and knowledge of current software, and also her ability to translate the concept of my business into a workable and cohesive logo and tagline. A few months later, when I needed a brochure and signage designed, Julie was the obvious choice. Her prompt replies and attention to detail were greatly appreciated, especially when I was working under a tight schedule. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Julie in the future, and wholeheartedly suggest that you do the same!
