Portfolio: Jules Julien

Visual artist and designer, Paris, France

Jules Julian is a designer and visual artist based in Paris, whose work covers a varied range of styles from graphics to illustration.

Where did you train and what did you specialise in?

I studied Graphic Design in Toulouse, France. 

What's your favourite tool?

It's got to be Adobe illustrator; the nib and magnifying glass are my best friends. 

What techniques to do you use most?

I mainly work digitally, as it's contemporary, doesn't involve any materials and is easy to share. 

What's your favourite piece you've created?

Each piece or series is a new story for me, so I don't have a particular favourite. What I love is starting  a project when anything is possible. 

What kinds of materials do you work with?

A camera, a computer and a mouse.

What (if any) computer packages do you use?

Adobe Creative Suite.

Which clients have you worked for, and where have you exhibited your work?

There are too many to list here, but you you can see them all on my website.

What inspires you?

Anything in any discipline. Generally, I start with words to get a concept for a design. It's a good way of ensuring I create something completely new.
