Curriculum Vitae

Valéry Goulet is the owner of valérydesignwrks, a small multidisciplinary design studio in Edmonton, Alberta.

At the beginning of 2015, Valery decided to leave the agency life she had known for the previous 14 years, and opened the doors to her new office of valérydesignwrks. She learned many things from the places she had invested her time which led her to realize her immense passion for branding, illustration and crafted design. She’s had the opportunity to partner with remarkable clients, and had shared in their successes and helped grow their businesses.

At valérydesignwrks, we use all media. Our aim is to effectively communicate a great idea with simplicity and precision. Our interventions are often fun and we don’t hesitate to call upon our talented friends when we need them for a project.

Valéry is available to discuss any potential projects you may have. Or if you’d like to just say bonjour, feel free to drop us a line.
