Edition Julie Joliat: An analog «Agenda» in a digital era

More about Julie Joliat


Julie Joliat is a Swiss graphic designer based in Zurich. In her work she is focusing on editorial design, visual identity and web design. Her «Agenda» is an analog calendar in a digital era.

Every year, the designer Julie Joliat produces an agenda, a unique calendar with different concepts. The size and basic layout remain the same, but the theme, typeface, design and colour change. The organiser includes additional pages for personal notes, as well as lots of useful information meticulously edited and designed, like a set of world maps exclusively drawn for the Agenda.

Each one has an underlying message that encourages people to challenge themselves. This gives rise to a combination of a planner, diary, notebook and book.

Julie Joliat was supported for her online shop and marketing of her project as part of the Design call 2019.
