Curriculum Vitae

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

At the beginning of 2015, Valéry decided to leave the agency life she had known for the previous 14 years, and she opened the doors to her new office. She learned many things from the places she had put in her time; most of all, she realized her passion for branding, illustration and crafted design. She's had the opportunity to partner with some pretty awesome clients, and she's shared in their successes and helped grow their businesses.

At valérydesignwrks, we use all media. Our aim is to get a great idea across in the simplest way possible. 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.
