I’m Julie, but you can call me Jules (most people do). I’m a graphic designer by trade, but have always dabbled in more traditional mediums of art.

We moved to Santa Cruz, CA (Jon’s hometown) in 2011 and run an print shop and a branding & design business together.

What is Orignaux?

This site was first set up so that Jon and I could have a place to share fun things we found on the internet. More and more it became my own, personal art haven, where I could feel free to share my passion projects.

The name comes from a turquoise cardboard moose head we made for our apartment when we first moved in together. We named it Orignaux (which is French Canadian for “moose”) and it quickly became a sort of mascot for our relationship!
