Our Creative Director and President

Susan Julien serves as the Creative Director and President of ADP Studios. Mrs. Julien began her career as a designer at a Connecticut based advertising agency. Following a very short tenure she was appointed Creative Director. Under her leadership the firm was responsible for the advertising and marketing strategies of Fortune 500 companies including Gillette, IBM, Regina Vacuum Cleaners and Durkee-French Foods.

Susan is widely respected for her corporate communication programs and rebranding campaigns.  Of particular interest was her work with industry giant Bliss & Nyitray, Structural Engineers; who struggled with corporate identity issues for five decades prior to retaining Ms. Julien.

In 2001 Susan formed Advanced Design Productions (ADP Studios), a graphic design and branding company to specifically fill a need in the A/E/C industry. Since that time Susan has been responsible for all agency services: art direction, design, strategic planning and branding, marketing/promotions, production, web design and development, event and tradeshow graphics and direct mail campaigns.

Susan has served on the boards of both Society of Marketing Professional Services South Florida Chapter and Commercial Real Estate for Women Palm Beach Chapter. She is a past member of the Electronic Design Association and Advertising Club of the Palm Beaches.

She is the recipient of The SMPS Communications Award, Gold Coast Builders Association – Graphics and Logo Design and American Consulting Engineers Council – Engineering Excellence Awards.

I worked with Susan, first as colleagues at Kimley-Horn and Associates, and then later after we had both started our own consulting businesses. Susan is possibly the best graphic designer I have ever worked with. Her ability to translate my ideas onto the page never ceased to amaze me. She always came back with exactly what I was looking for. Her prices were reasonable and fair, and she was very easygoing about making changes to accommodate the client. Highly recommended!
