Annie Brulé is the founder of Brulé Illustration and Design, co-founder of TypeInkPaper.com, and Managing Editor of the social ecology journal Broadcast. She is co-curator of the smallest art gallery in Seattle. Annie’s career as an illustrator, cartographer, artist, and designer of books involves collaborations and work with a wide range of creative voices, indigenous communities and issue-focused non-profits. Both her fine art and illustration work explores the mutual relationship of humans to the landscape, and her work with communities mapping their food systems is in demand throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Recent projects include the cover for a hand-printed poetry chapbook, a food-system map for a UC Berkeley publication, and an enormous hand-painted mural for a working cider house. She is happiest when surrounded by teenagers directing the creation of a giant collaborative map, or up a scaffold painting murals on the side of a barn.
Annie’s work evokes the essence of the clients and communities she works with, and her motto is: “Integrating communities with their environment through design”.
