Julie Robertson, NCIDQ, IIDA

Interior Design Director

“Getting to work with incredible clients and extremely talented coworkers and team members motivates me to push myself more on every new project.”

Julie is an award-winning designer passionate about solving problems to produce creative project solutions that bring the client’s brand and goals to reality. Through visioning, concept creation and partnership with clients and other disciplines in the industry she is able to create spaces, through form, that tell the client story.

She works in a collaborative culture that fosters design excellence, creativity and innovation. Family is a word she uses frequently when talking about the Minneapolis design studio and the culture they have created there. Collaboration is key in our design studio from exterior to interior, she says, and we all work together to give our clients the best concepts and designs possible.

Julie leads the design team in the Minneapolis studio and she also enjoys mentoring and teaching others what she has learned from her own mentors to elevate interior design at HDR — and throughout the industry. As the vice president of Community Outreach & Advocacy in her local IIDA Northland Chapter she leads many events in her community advocating for the profession. Julie also speaks at many different conferences across the U.S., to elevate the design conversation and promote the firm.
