From 1989 to 2012 Shen Design created affordable client-centered design solutions for businesses ranging from Fortune 500 companies to nonprofits to individual entrepreneurs. In 2012, Juliet retired from the graphic design field and now only undertakes typographic projects of particular interest. In 2005 she earned a masters degree in typeface design from the University of Reading in England. Since then she has designed custom typefaces for a broad range of uses, including indigenous language revival, children's books and bilingual typography. Her work in typeface design is ongoing. Juliet teaches typography at the School of Visual Concepts (SVC) in Seattle. She conceived and directed the programming for the Type Americana conferences sponsored by SVC in 2010 and 2012. She has served on the board of the Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA), helping to produce the annual TypeCon conference, with a focus on the Education Forum within the conference. Since 1990, Juliet has produced an annual limited edition, hand-printed card to celebrate the Chinese New Year. These prints have an international distribution and are collected and saved by many recipients. She continues to engage in printmaking and, upon retiring from graphic design, has taken up fine art pursuits again.
