Jean-Paul Goude is a French graphic designer, illustrator, photographer and advertising film director. He has formerly worked as art director at Esquire Magazine in New York during the 1970s, and famously choreographed the 1989 Bicentennial Parade in Paris to mark the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. In addition, over the last three decades, he has created well known advertising campaigns and illustrations for brands including Perrier, Citroën, Kodak, and Chanel.

Goude worked closely with model-turned-pop-singer Grace Jones, consulting on her image, choreographing her live stage performances, directing her music videos, and creating her album covers.

Soon after meeting, Goude and Jones pursued a romantic relationship, and he began stage-managing her live shows and creating her album covers. Jean-Paul Goude used retouching before computer manipulation to depict Jones in an impossible pose for her Island Life album. Jones also appeared in much of Goude’s other work, including his 1985 Citroën Cx 2 commercial.

All Goude’s touch is in the set of four movies he directed for Grace Jones.
