WORK LIKE A CAPTAIN,

PLAY LIKE
A PIRATE

I’m Jakne, (aka Janique Le Bail), independent illustrator & writer.

Working as a citizen-artist, I'm a music-fueled idealist fond of books, bicycles & falafels.

Sick of marketing, branding, consumerism and words like "effectiveness", "productiveness", "profits"… I quit Paris and Graphic Design to focus on socially & politically committed projects.

Be bold or italic
never regular.

I’m completely passionate about print design. I know it’s probably subversive to say that today in the design world, but I take the risk.

I worked on a lot of different projects, from designing apps
and websites, to create logotypes and brand identities for a lot
of companies, but over time it seems I keep coming back to print design. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very interesting to work on digital projects or having to create the global image of a company, I really like it, but for me the shining sparks really come when I design
a new font, when I create a new poster or when I flip through
a beautiful book, when I’m into the design thinking.
