Jean Jullien

Jean Jullien is a French graphic designer known for his often funny character-based illustrations. Born in Nantes, he did a graphic design degree in Quimper before moving to London. He graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2008 and from the Royal College of Art in 2010. He works closely to collaborate with musicians, filmmakers, photographers, costume makers, writers, and creators to make a coherent yet eclectic body of work.

“I was inspired by the French saying, ‘serpent à lunettes,’ (snake with glasses) which originally designated an Indian cobra. But it is more commonly used to refer to a person with glasses, in a sweet way.”

Tim Lahan

Tim Lahan is an artist and illustrator living and working in the Philadelphia area. His work is edgy and clever, picking up on the visual cues in everyday life. “I generally aim to make things as simpe as possible,” says Tim. “Sometimes they come out funny.”

“I wanted to focus on the construction of the frames. The fact that it’s three separate color pieces held together gives each piece its own vibe, without coming off as garish or unwearable. I love translucent materials. Instead of focusing on an opaque color, you’re creating a sort of ‘lens’ that allows you to see through the object rather than wonder what’s behind it.”

Margherita Urbani

Margherita’s work invokes pop-art sensibility paired with a profound love of typography, wrapped in bright and colorful movement. A native of northeastern Italy, Margherita is intrigued by the elements involved in balancing cultures, whether it be those of her hometown of Udine or her present home of Philadelphia. With a wry sense of humor, her comics and illustrations often explore the challenges – both linguistic and otherwise – of being “other.”

“I have always been drawn to cities. The colors, textures, and layers inspire me constantly. Working and living in the city always gives new perspective to my art, and I wanted to reflect that in my design.”
