Jillian Northrup

Design Director, Co-owner

Jillian Northrup is the Design Director and Photographer for Because We Can.

Jillian's background is based in interior design, graphic design, photography, and art. She started Because We Can with Jeffrey in 2006.

Involved in every project she is passionate about interior, furniture, and product design from small decorative pieces to large and complex projects. She feels that great communication, creative problem solving, and efficient operations are key to a successful project. Also a lead in the marketing department, she wears many hats in this small vibrant company. Prior to founding Because We Can, Jillian worked as a graphic designer and photographer for a variety of commercial clients and large retail companies.

In her non-existent moments of spare time she likes to escape to her painting studio, play drums with her band, design furniture for her house, and plan theme ideas for her next cocktail party.
