Julien Vallée

Paper vs. Pixels.

I always appreciate artwork that doesn’t involve the computer. In the business of graphic design these days, computer generated or tweaked art is the norm so it’s always refreshing to see something that is still done by hand with scissors, paper, pencils, and glue.

Montreal based designer/art director Julien Vallée creates hand crafted illustrations that are unique one of a kind works of art. I love this stuff, it has an obviously hand-made feel to it, and yet it mirrors an aesthetic that looks and feels in many ways like early computer graphics from the late 1980’s.

His clients include some heavy hitters like The New York Times, Print Magazine, MTV, and Computer Arts Magazine, in addition to being featured in hundreds of publications world-wide.
