About me

Over the past 6 years I worked as a Senior Designer & Digital Art Director on a multitude of amazing and challenging projects for a design company specialised in Cultural sector. Our list of client included the Barbican Centre, BFI, Unicorn Theatre, Dance Umbrella Festival, Bristol Old Vic...I worked mostly on Web Design, Digital and Films but also actively participated in developing Visual Identity. I am a multitasks designer and a problem solver person. I like to take influences from contemporary art, architecture, fashion and cinematography, and always lean towards minimalism and simplicity. I'm a big typography lover and always keep up to date with the new trends in technology. I aim for a high quality, polished product to achieve my clients goals.

Manon Xhaard

Jan 2005
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • Pete Way - Creative Director - Cohn & Wolfe "Manon has done a couple of jobs for us - the first was a teaser film that she edited and did the motion graphics for that was outstanding. The second was a client piece of work that she finished off another editor's work - the client was really impressed. I would definitely use her again - she is great to work with, gets on with it and delivers some really good stuff." Mathieu Breliere - Film Director: "Manon developed a practical website that fitted my style in a very elegant and sharp way. She also created a 360 degrees communication tool, and really gave life to a frame for my work online, and I’m proud of sharing it every time. She was bright at taking me through the technical process too, despite my job keeping me intensely busy, I never felt out of touch and I could really see that she enjoyed creating my visual identity. I strongly recommend her !"
