It’s time for the second obsession session with none other than one of the most inspiring and interesting people I’ve met to date, Daniel Julien. A graphic designer, actually a modern day DaVinci based out of Montréal, Canada. He knows no limits when it comes to exploring new creative boundaries, from product design, posters, identities to anything that oozes coolness, daniel does with swagger and a smile. I met him a couple months ago during a multi-week stint at creative powerhouse SidLee in Montréal while working on the next global creative campaign for adidas, I’m privileged to know such a positive person.
I: What’s the earliest memory of a creative activity you did?
x I believe I made a Two Ply Eight Part Button Knot with the umbilical cord when i was born. Second souvenir is probably drawing supernova military space stations and all-terrain trucks. They seemed so real in my mind — wonder how the drawings actually looked…
I: If you weren’t doing what you do right now, what would you be doing?
x Probably Djing (so predictable). Been fascinated by turntables and records since I was a shorty. My father would get mad at me, I would crank some christmas disco songs and Greek dance music all day ‘eer day. Or maybe private investigator, yeah, private investigator.
I: Inspiration, who? what? where?
x Mostly inspired by small things, the unnoticed. Wherever my attention deficit brings me. In crush mode when all is hectic and the deadline is giving me the cold shoulder – panic overcomes and then I realize that the solution has been in front of me all the time.
I: Share any piece of your work, recent or old and talk about it.
x I was ask to build a logo for a collabo between Furni and Ken Diamond — Almost carte blanche. Only constraint, It had to link Montréal and Vancouver. Printed on an hanker chief and laser etched on a pale leather wallet. Really into product design lately and many fun opportunities are coming thru.
I: Name 5 websites that you check often.
