Meet Juliette Trompette, Graphic Designer
Tell us a little a bit about yourself….
I’m Juliette, graphic designer at REGGS with a passion for packaging. I’m from Cannes, France but I studied in Paris where I got an Art Director Master Degree. I also attended several packaging courses in Toronto, Canada.
I always loved to built things, to play with materials and textures. I built my own car form cardboard boxes and cereal packs when I was 5. Since then, I never stopped building my own games/toys. When I was older, I discovered the advertising world and the impact of images, words. I was sold! Packaging really combines my two passions : design and volume.
After travelling around Europe, I chose Amsterdam as my next home ! That’s how I discovered REGGS. I knocked on the door and said “Hello I’m Juliette, I want to be part of your team!”… And guess what, it worked!
What do you get out of your bed for?
Breakfast, for sure! I cannot start a day without a good breakfast. As we say, it’s the most important meal of the day !
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I’m a real globetrotter; I love to discover new countries, new designs and new ways of thinking. I get most inspired when I’m travelling, on my bike or in the metro. I put my earphones in without music, just to think, imagine and watch people. The way they talk, the way they dress…
Do you have any hobbies?
Does shopping count as a hobby? Or maybe it’s more an addiction for me. I love clothes, I love going to second hand shops or vintage markets to find incredible pieces! I just love colors and patterns.
What are you most proud of in business terms?
I’m really proud to have said goodbye to France and my life there to live a new adventure here in Amsterdam! About my work, I really enjoyed building and designing this big kirigami book I made, all by hand (my fingers still remember it…). Becoming a paper artist is definitely one of my dreams.
Which customer do you ever hope to work for?
I really love working for luxury brands such as Lancôme, Paco Rabanne, Armani that I worked for in my last agency. Luxury packaging design combine what I like the most : refined design, simple but complex in the same time, a story behind every creation and the possibility to come up with crazy ideas.
Tell us something we don’t know about you…
Well, Like a real fashion addict I have more than 60 pairs of shoes! (I know, I really need to calm down!) but let’s share something more unexpected…
I guess you won’t be able to tell but I’m a real daredevil! I managed to break my wrists 14 times and my leg once…
