Joëlle Renauld

I was born and live in Québec City. I like the simple things in life. As a hobby, I enjoy photography and received my love for art and beauty from my mother who is an artist. My father, a lawyer, passed on to me the love of the French language and the pride of a job well done.  You may connect with Joelle at https://www.linkedin.com/in/jo%C3%ABlle-renauld-9537614/

Graphic Designer and Project Manager Joëlle Renauld

Tell us a little something about your business...

I don’t have a business per se, but I offer my skills as a graphic artist and project manager. Currently, and since 2017, I have been working within the publishing industry. I started out as a freelance writer on a 3 month contract, but after only 1 week, they offered me a permanent position and soon I began to work as a project manager. At the beginning, I started with small contracts and within the months that followed, I found myself in charge of larger clients, managing several other projects. I have been able to show my skills not only as a graphic designer, but also as a technician.  In 3 years, I have had the opportunity to learn, expand my knowledge and build confidenc. Now, I am often called upon to help and mentor my colleagues.  Another thing that I particularly enjoy is being in charge of a project from A to Z. That includes meeting with the client to discuss what they are looking for, realize their vision, create the layout and take their dream to print. I find my work is very rewarding and even more so when the customer is happy.

When was your lightbulb moment?

At University when I realized that I wanted to manage projects and work as a team to create beauty.

What are your three words of advice?

Breathe – Because by taking the time to breathe, you slow down, think better and reduce stress.  Simplicity – Keeping it simple helps to offset the hectic pace of life.  Pride – Any job that deserves to be done deserves to be well done. Having pride in your work is essential.

Three words of advice...

Breathe. Simplicity. Pride.
