Picture is first of all the story of three friends coming from different environments
Julien is coming from marketing, after graduating from a business school, he became upset being in Paris and dreaming about awesome powder sessions.
Jeremy was working as an architect within a architect family company, which is the “traditional life” for an architect’s son, but not the life he dreamed about, being a “bio a eco fan”
Vincent was just graduated highschool when he decided to join this adventure with his two friends onto this crazy project instead of going to university, as he was really “different”
Obsessed by their child dream, by this need to create something looking like them, Jeremy Julien & Vincent built Picture in 2008 and as a first headquarter they had a small space beside a carcheck office.
Picture is a clear concept based on strong values:
A product conception the most eco-friendly as possible.
unique creations, that you can notice easily thanks to a fresh and colorfull design, appreciated for their technicity and quality.
Street prices monitored, so that our products are a possible alternative to products that are non eco-friendly thanks to aligned prices.
