hi, i'm julian, and i build things.
hey there, friend!

I'm Julian, a 19 yo French student passionate about programming and dabbling in design. I'm currently studying Computer Science at the University of Bristol.

I love making user & browser-friendly websites and web-apps, and am currently delving into software development.

Speaking of the web, I've launched a neat little startup called Pictually.me, which I like to believe is my (small) personal contribution to the ever expanding world of social media. I am now working on a new venture called Empathy; stay tuned! Likewise, check out my Type 1 Diabetes Awareness campaign over at LetsCureDiabetes.org.

Other facts about me: I have lived in England, France, Australia and the US, making me fluent in both French and English, and able to hold a conversation in German and Spanish.

You can also get my CV here and check out my GitHub. Speaking of, I'm currently open to freelance jobs ranging from logos to full-blown websites. Let's talk!

Rockerbox homepage
rockerbox
website - current client

Rockerbox is a New York-based advertising technology startup. I was hired as a web-development intern over summer 2014, and have continued working with them since.

I initially redesigned and built their front-facing website, where responsiveness and minimalism were key.

The main goal of the project was to build their client dashboard from scratch using multiple JavaScript data manipulation and visualisation libraries (D3.js, Crossfilter.js, DC.js). Here as well, the emphasis was to provide a smooth user experience, and to give clients a unique and beautiful way to view and interact with their advertising data.

website - current client

Hopps and Woolf is a UK-based startup intent on disrupting the alternative milk market.

I was hired in early 2014 to develop their front-facing website given mockups, and then to design and build their entire back-end customer area.

Extensive effort was placed on making their web portal as responsive and user-friendly as possible, and their payment processing platform is heavily inspired by e-commerce websites such as Amazon to maximise user satisfaction.

The project also includes a fully-featured admin panel, from which the team can process and dispatch new orders, add and remove promotional codes, and provide customer support (amongst others).

Pictually.me homepage
pictually.me
website - current

Pictually.me is a creative splash page that links all your other presences on the web and is geared towards helping you share your creative work with the world. Think About.me social meets Behance design portfolio.

Concocted in early 2011, it began as a personal portfolio synthesizing the social foundation of sites such as About.me and the traditional web-portfolio. Realizing that the idea could potentially benefit others, the audience of the project was shifted towards usage by the general artistic community, and several months later it was renamed Pictually.me.

In a world where computers play a key role in how humans function, evolve, the programmer is king.

This poster represents some of the most influential programming languages past and present, their date of creation, by whom and where, as well as what their intended uses are.

Please note that some of the information portrayed may be approximative!

I may consider selling prints if there is enough demand :)

let's cure diabetes!
website - december 2011

After having been diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes in 2010, I realised the extent to which misinformation about the condition was widespread. I set myself to the task of creating a simple "Explain Like I'm Five"-type website, to which I could refer friends who had any questions.

My initial goal was to sell t-shirts with unique diabetes-related motifs, e.g. playing on the "blue ring" symbol of the condition itself. Proceeds would be donated towards diabetes research.

Although the website itself is due for a makeover, and the sale of merchandise has yet to be undertaken, diabetes awareness remains on my mind, and I plan on revisiting the project in the near future.
