Edmonton designer's most important job is role model | Arrival Cities | Scoop.it

EDMONTON - In his two-storey print shop in west Edmonton, Jules Thomas works two phones, juggles two businesses and contemplates the two lives he’s already lived at age 30.


A self-taught designer and musician, Thomas is the creative talent in a small, two-person design firm, Distrikt Media. He’s also the brains behind his second venture, Bannock Burger, a mobile restaurant, launched this summer.


As part of a younger generation of aboriginals trying their hand at business in the big city, Thomas is an optimist these days: “I just want to be a better me and now I’m a role model for young aboriginals in the city.”
