JACK is the company creation of Julien Choquart and Camille Hirigoyen, both initially graphic designers, and later owners of JACK and responsible for several illustration and art direction projects.  Their unique style is apparent in many illustration and advertising projects of renowned companies among others Nike, the car manufacturers Honda and Ford as also as a series of covers for the Chinese Vogue.

Recently they launched a new video for the French group Cocosuma which features a number of hand crafted and painted skulls made by the two.  The project is all stop-motion... directed & crafted this summer in Paris.

JACK stands for Julien and Camille Kingdom. The two artists started working as graphic designers five years ago, after having previously obtained a diploma of graphic arts from ESAG-Penninghen, in Paris.
After their graduation Julien moved to New York where he specialised in video and motion graphics by directing music videos and designing album covers. In the meanwhile Camille had already started her career as a graphic designer.

In 2005, the two moved to Shangai which soon lead them to signing a contact for the launching and design of advertising campaigns of the Chinese Fashion magazine Vogue. The successful outcome of this project caught the attention of other companies including the sportswear manufacturer NIKE which set them in charge of the ‘Just Do It’ campaign in China, Japan and Europe.

After moving back to London for two years and developing further their business mainly through freelance AD, Julien and Camilla are now based in Paris where they mainly work as artistic directors and with several projects in hand including the latest music video of the band Cocosuma, the identity of 2009 AD Club night as also as 4 TV commercials for the gas company Primagaz.

    The end of the video is more optimistic than its beginning. I liked it.

    I like the Nike Ad with the Celetics player. I feel it really echo's David Hockney. The over all art direction seems less designed based but more "art" driven.
