Jillian Northrup is a designer, artist, and photographer…
Here’s a video interview we did earlier this year.
She comes from many years in professional design and digital photography working mostly in the retail, publishing, and entertainment industries. For the last three years she has been the founder and co-owner of the design-build studio, Because We Can. As an owner of this small business, she has been immersed in product and furniture design from small decorative pieces to large and complex interior spaces, and is involved in every phase of the project form initial concepts to the physical building. She runs design jobs with focus on great communication internally and with the client, manages the creation of conceptual designs for the client, keeps track of all phases of the project and heads decisions like finishing colors and hiring and managing outside contractors. She runs the creation and production of all the BWC marketing materials, all product and project photography, and branding.
In her non-existent moments of spare time she likes to spend time on Flickr, draw, read thick books, make up new Tiki Drink concoctions, and plan theme ideas for the next BWC party.
