The word from La founder : I have known Manon for years. She is one of these people that you see at diners and parties, always cool, always nice, always easy-going. She has this natural ease that makes her very accessible and mysterious at once. She is very discreet about her work, she observes people in all kind of situations, she is a great listener, she embodies an idea of understated and yet obvious chic in her manners and her style. You can feel her creativity just looking at her, and you can sense her open-mindedness by just having a drink with her. I love her works and how she plays with letters, typographies and colors. She is one of those magicians who can provide a true identity to a brand, with a very personal take.
Your astrological sign:
A special feature about you:
I am a dreamer.
Your credo/mantra in life:
To look, to search, to listen, to feel.
Why you love your job/craft? Or why you have chosen this path?
Because I get to meet people from very different worlds and crafts and I get to be part of their projects. Each project is an opportunity to help to build something new and to be part of a new story.
A special project you loved doing:
What I did with the brand Le Petit Lucas du Tertre. I have met Marie and Clémence 5 years ago. We have learnt to work together step by step, and now I am working on their brand image. It is always fascinating to have a global vision. It is a brand that is very dear to me.
An anecdote you would like to share:
I started working in a studio just after I graduated, for a few months. One day, two girls arrived for a meeting, they were fashion designers. A few years later, a friend offered to me to take over a client from her because she could not take care of them anymore due to lack of time. When I arrived at this client’s office, it was the same two girls that I have seen in the first place. They are the founders of the brand I just mentioned above. We are still working together ever since, it’s been five years and we have a very trustworthy relationship. I believe in coincidences and in signs. 😉
A special person/encounter, or mentor/partner:
No one in particular. I am inspired by people, by watching them living their lives, and I admire them for various reasons. People who surround me, and especially my children. 😉
Marguerite Duras’ books in general, Les petits chevaux de Tarquinia in particular.
We Own the Night, James Gray.
