G'day!

My name is Julien Bucaille. I'm a half French half German Visual Designer, Web Developer & Digital Enthusiast in his late twenties, currently working as Senior Art Director at Jung von Matt and judge at CSSDA.
I love all things black-and-white, weird sounding guitar solos, cheese, milk and the smell of roasting onions in a pan. And coffee, of course.

I started doing what I do by now about ten years ago and although I took a more audio-oriented detour in between — well, not really a detour, just a different approach to fulfill my need for creativity — I eventually came back to doing what I used to do about two years ago. I've worked very hard ever since trying to improve my skills in Visual Design & Web Development. My goal was not only to be able to offer my clients a broad spectrum of services, but to really accompany them from start to finish of a project. That's why — unlike many others in the industry — I decided to not specialize in either design or development, but to do both. Also: It wouldn't have made sense to choose between the two, if I'm actually passionate about both fields, right?

Over the course of the last two years, I've had the chance to work with multiple clients and agencies of all sorts and was able to gain a lot of experience. Experience that helped me improving my skills in communication, project management and strengthen my knowledge of the industry in general.
As of late, I joined the ranks of Jung von Matt to work as a Senior Art Director in the digital department and became an official member of the judging panel at CSSDA.
