Julien Vallée

Close encounter of a three-dimensional kind
Posted by Gestalten—02/2009

The striking creations of Canadian-born graphic designer Julien Vallée incorporate splendid handcraft and digital technology. For the cover art of Gestalten's new book <-Tangible: High Tough Visuals->, Vallée uses his multidisciplinary graphic-inspired approach and stages his design spatially by crafting three-dimensional objects and lettering. The result – a stunning almost palpable cover! Not limiting himself to print, he uses the stylistic means of graphic design to create art installations, motion graphics, animations and video designs. His playful graphics has gained him commissions and props from clients such as New York Times Magazine, MTV and Swatch to musicians like Kanye West. We met Julien, who's recently moved to Berlin, while he was preparing his installation for his group exhibition here in the city. A Gestalten favourite, his work is also featured in a number of our books; <-Tactile->, <-Fully Booked-> and <-Lemon Poppy Seed->.
