When Christian, Rob and Nico formed Studio123, they had a vision of providing better service and a higher degree of design execution to Francophone clients. Since 2013, we’ve had a chance to work with inspired clients on bilingual and french campaigns, creating design tools that help them meet their objectives. To bolster that position, and continue to push that founding mandate, we’ve recently hired Jasmine Paquette, a Francophone graphic designer who will work primarily with our Francophone clients.
Today, more than half of our team is fluently bilingual and is able to create and communicate in French and English interchangeably. Read on to learn more about Jazz.
What sparked your interest in design?
While I was an artsy gal since I was very young, it wasn’t until I was part of the Yearbook design committee in high school that I realized I enjoyed graphic design enough to pursue it as a career. It is, however, a graphic design dual credit that I took at Canadore College while in high school that really sealed the deal for me.
What do you bring to the Studio123 dynamic?
What I bring to the Studio123 dynamic is a proactive can-do attitude, lots of good vibes, and a dash of French flair.
What designers do you look up to?
Jessica Hische is a designer I’ve admired and followed since the start of my graphic design journey. I’ve always envied her eye for creative typography, often referring to her work for creative inspiration. I’ve more recently discovered Lauren Hom’s typography work and James Martin’s logo and brand design work.
What skills are you hoping to develop in your new role at Studio123?
I’m hoping to eventually be able to tap into the logo and brand design side of the business, and I also hope to have the chance to work on event campaigns. I hope to stay for a long time AND a good time, continuing to learn about the best graphic design practices from the awesome Studio123 team.
Do you have any favourite hobbies?
In my spare time, I like to get some movement in, whether it be a workout session, yoga, or a hike with friends. I love to learn new recipes, try to create crazy DIY home decor, and bury my nose in a good book with a cup of coffee.
What’s the last movie you saw? Was it awesome, or did it suck?
Not a movie but rather a short series, the last thing I watched was “Pepsi, where’s my jet?” on Netflix. This Netflix original docu-series explores the historical Leonard v. PepsiCo court case, and it was an amazing watch. I found it to be that much more interesting because of my own personal knowledge about Graphic Design and advertising, and for that reason I would highly recommend it.
