Hi there, as you already know my name is Julian Irwin. I live in the best city in NA (in my humble opinion) Toronto. More specifically, the Junction Triangle.
I share my home with my talented wife, who is an accomplished leader in the healthcare world. We have three energetic and intelligent children that keep us on our toes and make us laugh. As the son of an Architect and a Museum Curator it is natural that design, art, culture and communication would be become part of my life.
I have been creating/designing/making/experimenting all my life but professionally for 16 years. In that time, I have gone from a purely print-based designer to multi-talented threat, comfortable working in both a digital and analog world (that is a designer way of saying I do both print and web work). In addition to this, I have extensive brand and marketing experience working with some of North America’s largest companies (Coca Cola, Molson-Coors, NHL) as well as many mid-size and startups.
Being a graphic designer offers me the opportunity to work with a vast array of interesting people and ideas. As a visual communicator, it is my role to help others bridge the divide between what they are saying and what their audience is interpreting. It is through these visual communication challenges that I find the greatest reward and this is my ‘job’ – well, I guess I got that ‘what to do with my life’ thing figured out.
Now the most important questions is what can I do for you? If you have a project you would like to discuss- let’s talk. Alternatively, if you would like to reach out in a more informal manner, you can find me on LinkedIn, Twitter or text me at 416 707 6368.
