My name is Jules Verardi. I have been an art director at Comedy Central and a multi-platform motion designer for 14 years. I'm a specialist at branding and part-time animation professor for The New School.
I have been interviewed by Art of the Title for my “Broad City” show opens and I was awarded gold and silver at Promax BDA for my work on “Broad City,” “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Roast of James Franco” and “Roast of Rob Lowe.” In other (not fake) news I also got to work on "The Daily Show's Trump Twitter Library" exhibit in NYC which won the most prestigious Cannes Lion Grand Prix for outdoor Immersive Experiences.
In the role of Art Director, I have led a team while also being hands-on for campaigns, show opens, and shoots for award winning shows such as, “31 Days of Holiday Survival” hosted by Blake Griffin, “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Broad City,” “Drunk History” and “The Amy Schumer Mostly Sex Stuff” stand-up special. More generally, my experience includes having designed and animated for show opens, launch campaigns, events, integrated marketing campaigns and social platforms.
My freelance experience includes projects for CNN, International Rescue Committee (IRC) Interscope Records, Pfizer, Imaginary Forces, American Eagle, Regan Arts, Shape Magazine, L'Oreal, Maybelline, and Essie. I have also worked with several clients on social media branding toolkits.
In addition to my BFA from the School of Visual Arts, I have taken a wide array of continuing education courses, ranging from studying typography with Sumner Stone at Cooper Union to brushing up in Cinema 4D and UX design at NYU. I have also completed a one-year intensive training program in communication and leadership through Promax BDA's Executive Mentorship Program with Trollback + Company.
As a result of my diverse experience, I am comfortable with a variety of styles and techniques such as branding, infographics, compositing, hand drawn illustrations, 3D, vector illustrations, print, digital, broadcast design, storyboarding, title sequences, concept development, editing, stop motion, logo development and banner ads.
