President & CEO
Julie just gets it. When we discuss a design concept, she listens thoughtfully, asks questions that make me think through it more clearly and then executes a design that is EXACTLY what I intended. Every time. She is smart, talented and extremely customer-centric. Her designs have helped the West Suburban Chamber of Commerce attract more members, enhance our image and tell our story. In addition, Julie has never missed a deadline; in fact, she turns things around very quickly. You will never wonder where your design is . . . it's delivered on time, every time. I highly recommend using Julie and Harsh Elements.
Owner & Massage Maven
When I was in the process of opening my business in 2014, I reached out to Julie to have her design my logo and business cards. Within a few days, she had a few mock ups prepared for me to review. As we went back and forth fine tuning the design, she never wavered in her desire to make sure I was 100% happy with the end result. Since then, she has helped me with various social media graphics and has also given me advice on my website. Julie is also one of the most dedicated, supportive and hard-working people I know. She goes to great lengths to get projects done quickly and efficiently. I look forward to working with her on many more projects throughout the years to come!
President & Owner
Harsh Elements is my go-to source for illustrations and logos. No matter what industry my clients fall under, I can rely on Julie Harshbarger for carefully crafted images for websites, brochures, business cards and promotional items. Whether asked to render and polish a customer’s draft or to develop the concept from scratch, I know my clients will be happy with the results.

I've known Jules for years through football, but my Mother told me she did graphic design work! I started a new business and asked her to help me design a logo and business cards . . . well she made my vision a reality! I get compliments on my cards and logo all the time and I tell everyone in my industry to go to her for graphic design work!
Owner & GM
Julie is unwavering when it comes to her desire to make sure you have a product that you are 100% happy with at a time that you would want it in. Julie constantly asks questions to make sure my vision for a project is exactly what is being given to me. If you have no ideas for a design concept she will also give you plenty of amazing choices to choose from. I have hired her to work on materials to give to my athletes and they always comment on how sleek and professional of a design it is. You will not regret hiring Julie, she does amazing work, incredibly attentive, and gets it to you faster than any other designer I have worked with.
Founding Partner & Coach
I hired Julie to handle the designs for my company logo as well as handle all my wedding design needs. I can not express how amazing everything turned out. Her professionalism and attention to detail surpasses anyone’s expectations. In addition, she provided me with such an unique perspective to all of my projects by bringing my ideas to life with her creativity. I was extremely impressed with not only the quality of her work, but also the product turn over rate to complete the project well before the discussed deadline. Every time I have any design needs, she’s the first person I turn to or recommend. She is such a friendly and compassionate person, it’s hard not to feel like you are working with someone you have known your entire life. Anyone would be lucky to have her a part of their design team.
Working with Julie was an absolute joy and so easy! I was able to go to her with a very vague idea of what I wanted my logo to look like and she completely brought my vision to life! She entertained all of my wild ideas and I was able compare different options. The final product is exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend her and will use her again in the future for any of my branding or design needs!
