Julie Lobo is a brazilian creative director currently based in Paris. In 2019 whilst still in Brazil she graduated in Graphic Design and during that time she developed her aptitude for image composition, as well as the basis to her personal aesthetic. As a cinephile, she also became a regular at courses that focused on various areas of film production in order to comprehend the art of filmmaking as a whole. Ultimately, this creative path led her to follow a second degree in Cinema at Paris 8, where she’s currently at L2.
Seeking to combine references from different forms of art, Julie gives depth to experimentalism, creating an expanded and expressive language. Shadowplays, glowing lights and blurry textures are some of the trademarks present in her work, resulting in a mysterious dream-like atmosphere where reality blends within fiction. She is particularly interested in film-essays and other variations of experimental documentaries, in which she puts together fragments of her perceptions of the world through film, photo or words, turning ideas into visual poetry.
As a freelancer she has worked with clients such as the United Nations, Puma, TNT, Johnnie Walker, Carolina Herrera, Deezer, The Players Tribune and many more. She also worked for many independent artists and appreciates telling their stories.
