Hi! I’m Julia Reich of Stone Soup Creative. I’m a graphic recorder, facilitator, brand strategist, and graphic designer. I love using visuals and facilitation techniques to help organizations simplify complex messages and ideas, and make important decisions.

Here’s some of the ways we can engage:


Do you work with a group that needs to gather information or make a decision? You might need a structured meeting facilitator to help guide the process by employing methodologies that use a two-way flow of information.

I inspire and stimulate people in a group decision-making context to make more informed consensual decisions by speaking with them, not at them. I create an environment that is conducive to productivity and breakthrough ideas. I aspire to practice sensitivity, empathy, deep listening, and neutrality.

I can help you shape your workshop or meeting agenda, since being a facilitator also means I am a methodologist – familiar with a wide range of tools and activities that can help your group reach their goals and objectives in a collaborative, yet highly structured setting.

Graphic Recording


Ever leave a meeting, and by the next Monday  you feel like your team’s vision and energy are no longer aligned? Wish there was an inspiring way to document your team’s thought journey? What if you could capture and summarize a visual representation of a workshop, presentation or event? I use my experience as a branding consultant and graphic designer to bring your discussions to life – it’s called graphic recording or graphic facilitation (I’ve also been called a sketchnoterlive illustrator and corporate artist).

In real time, I capture and synthesize your ideas into a bold and beautiful, hand-drawn graphical record of your session.

Graphic recording is about more than just documentation, unlike taking notes or videos. What I do deepens engagement, drives shared understanding and strengthens communication.

Your team will watch their ideas and conversations come to life, ultimately creating a visual artifact that can be easily seen, understood and shared.

See how I’ve used graphic recording and animated whiteboard explainer videos to capture people’s ideas using words, pictures and colors. ›

Brand Strategy

Is your organization thinking about re-branding, or is in need of a new brand? Do you run a creative agency that seeks a branding expert and certified facilitator that loves to work with people? I work closely with your team or your client in a workshop setting to uncover truths about your organization – to capture your  authentic identity, something no other organization can be.

The Brand Recipe is a process proprietary to Stone Soup Creative, and highly customizable based on your time and budgetary constraints. I will facilitate this process with your team to identify and strengthen your brand through a positioning strategy that resonates and effectively differentiates your organization, allowing your brand to move forward with confidence.

Graphic Design

Need help bringing your brand to life? I’ll use your words and data to design infographics, annual reports, websites, brand identity, fundraising campaigns, publications and other marketing collateral. I’ll listen carefully to your goals and help you create engagement with your audience.
