Jullien, a French graphic designer who currently lives in London, tweeted the image out shortly after the attacks, with the simple message “Peace for Paris,” and it spread quickly. The design was initially incorrectly attributed to infamous British graffiti artist Banksy.

At press time, CNN estimated that over 150 were dead in multiple coordinated attacks across the French capital, including over 100 concertgoers who were taken hostage at an Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan concert hall.
