Design Inspiration: Catherine’s Picks

Julien Vallée (Vallée Duhamel)

Canadian graphic designer and art director Julien Vallée is known for creating lo-fi, humorous animations. The Vallée Duhamel aesthetic is vibrant: led by big ideas and guided by loose storyboards, the creatives involved in each shoot solve the problems of how to make the things in the script happen as they go along.


David Carson

David Carson is an American graphic designer, art director, and surfer best known for his experimental approach to typography.

David Shringley

David Shrigley is an artist and illustrator best known for his mordantly humorous cartoons. Self-branded as an outsider in the art world, Shrigley is known for making flat compositions that take on the inconsequential, the bizarre, and the disquieting elements of everyday life. Like the musings of a very wise child displaying the wit and humor of a seasoned observer of the adult world, his illustrations feature crossed-out words, scribbled, uneven lines, and darkly funny aphorisms about the world. —
