About me

Hello! I’m Julie Baltazar, a recent graduate of Colorado State University with a Bachelor's in Journalism & Media Communication. I’m a graphic design and motion graphics designer specializing in making broadcast news not only for the ear, but also for the eye. I’ve worked closely with the three main content departments at CTV, including the Sports department, the Entertainment department, and the News department. My work has consisted of a variety of graphics, ranging from bumps, to animated infographics, to rebranding the variety shows for the past two semesters. I want to make the news as interesting to watch as I can, not only for adults, but for all age groups. People like things with fun visuals, and that’s what I love to make.

In my free time, I enjoy experimenting with animation in After Effects. In high school, I used to make Instagram edits of my favorite TV shows and fictional characters to familiarize myself with the program while also writing visual love letters to the media I love. Although I don’t make these edits anymore, I like to think that the content I make for CTV is a more adult version of that hobby – I still get to be creative with the messages that I communicate, and the graphics I make for each show are based off of a new set of muses: the anchors. Lately, I’ve also picked up crocheting. As of right now, I can’t make much besides granny squares and coasters, but I’ve been getting more ambitious – my most recent crochet project was a strawberry tote bag. Though these hobbies aren’t really within the same realm, it still pushes me to exercise the creative part of my brain in different ways, which I’ve always valued since I believe that you can never be too old to continue learning.
