Julien Hébert (August 19, 1917 – May 24, 1994) was a Québécois industrial designer, perhaps most famous for creating the logo of the Montreal World Exposition, Expo 67.

Formerly a student of philosophy, Hébert began his design education as a student of sculpture at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, continuing in 1947 in Paris under Ossip Zadkine. Hébert later became a teacher himself, teaching art history and sculpture at his alma mater, the École des beaux-arts, and instructing in planning and design at the École du meuble. He went on to assist in the establishment of the École du design industriel at the University of Montreal. [1]

In 1979, Hébert was awarded the Prix Paul-Émile-Borduas by the Québécois Government.
