Denise Gourley

Job Description

Graphic Designer

Education or Accreditations

BFA in Graphic Design from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Spent one (1) year at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, PA. IUP had an affiliate program allowing graphic design majors in their junior year to attend and transfer all classes/credits from AIP back to your degree.

Work Background

Been designing for a while now, I started out at a newspaper right after graduating college. Actually it was the same hometown newspaper that my grandfather used to typeset for when it was done using individual letters to create blocks of text (Linotype slugs). From there I moved on to yellow page advertising before joining the JPT team.

Area of Expertise

I don't claim to be an expert at anything but I'm pretty good at teamwork and attention to detail, ad layout, and direct mail. I enjoy playing around with photos and blending images together to make them appear like one, though I admit I'm a bit out of practice.

Computer Software Proficiency

  • InDesign
  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator


I love cats of all kinds, large or small, wild or domestic. Enjoy spending time with family and friends. I can be a bit nostalgic at times, I like old cars and antiques especially if they have family roots. Things I like to do when alone are reading and working puzzles. I have a vast spoon collection from all over the world, thanks to friends and family as well as my own travels.

Favorite Saying

When life gives you lemons make LEMONADE

Favorite Song

I like all types of music but tend to listen to country, old and new. But my favorite song, since I heard it as a kid listening to my parents old jukebox 45's, is Baby Sitting Boogie (1961) by Buzz Clifford

Favorite Movie

Yours, Mine and Ours (1968) - Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda

Favorite Book

These days my favorite reading material leans toward murder, mystery thrillers, you know, the "See if you can figure out who did it before the last chapter" kind. But again, I go back to the past for my favorite book. Corduroy, yes I know it's a children's book but I've always like the story. Written and illustrated by Don Freeman, and published in 1968 by Viking Press
