I am Marie-Joëlle Fournier, an illustrator et graphic designer living in Montréal, Canada.
I conceive illustrations for different organizations and business in the education, publishing and advertising sectors. I enjoy participating in various projects ranging from promotional posters to educational books and corporate web illustration.
Holder of a bachelor’s degree in graphic design from Laval University and an illustration diploma from Dawson College, I have developed a distinctive and adaptable style that allows me to accommodate a wide variety of projects.
I seek to create meaningful illustrations that are both aesthetically pleasing and intelligent. I like to work with strong and evocative images that capture imagination. My goal is to bring out the best image to convey an idea, an emotion or to tell a story… I favor bright colors, graphic shapes and a mixture of rich textures to compose eye-catching visuals. Although the majority of my illustrations are done digitally, I also integrate handmade elements to bring a traditional and warm side. The aesthetics of my work can appeal to adults and children alike.
When I’m not busy at my drawing board, I enjoy walking the streets looking for dusty treasures or imagining funny shapes in the clouds. You might also find me on two wheels somewhere, chasing distant and spectacular landscapes.
I’d be happy to hear from you too . Feel free to contact me to discuss your ideas.
