HARTING FONT
Julie's last name may be familiar to graphic designers because of Harting font, which was named after her. It's a font that's commonly described as looking like a typewriter running out of tape, and for a long time it was popular for designing album covers. For example, Smashing Pumpkins' Pisces Iscariot, Sarah McLaclan's Afterglow, Alanis Morisette's jagged little pill, and The Smithereens' A Date With The Smithereens all use Harting font on their album covers.

In the 1990's, when Julie was getting her doctorate in music composition, she walked into class and was told by her professor, David Rakowski, that he created and named a font after her. Rakowski was in the habit of creating fonts and naming them after his students. She's not sure, but he may have chosen to name this font after her because, at the time, she was using an out-of-date music notation software program so inept she would have to white-out certain passages and re-notate them by hand.

The font is downloadable for free on many internet sites, and currently enjoys fame in the scrapbook-making world for its antique look.
