About this speaker

“I have achieved my career trifecta–designing, teaching, and publishing,” JuLee Brand says regarding her over 30 years of real-world experience. 

From an early age, she always wanted to create things. Book covers and type inspired her to pursue a career in design. After several years as Production Manager for Reunion Records, she moved to High Five Entertainment as Creative Director and designed television motion graphics for many series, award shows, and specials. 

In 2010, after receiving her MFA from Full Sail University, she began teaching part-time at colleges, universities, and design schools while also working full-time designing television and print graphics. 

It was her move to Hachette Book Group-Nashville as Art Director in 2012 where she learned the workings of the publishing world from behind the curtain.

Everyone has a story and that inspiration sparked the creation of W. Brand Publishing in 2018. Along with the goal of publishing great books and designing attention-grabbing covers, Brand hopes the authors’ stories provide enlightenment, entertainment, and connection to the reader. Her mantra, words matter, has now become part of her brand and mission.
