Designer - Scriptwriter - Scenographer


Fiona du Mesnildot (1990), is a French designer. Recently graduated from the Social Design Master at Design Academy Eindhoven, with a background in Graphic Design and Digital Media Narration, she likes to define her work as visual communication as it often aims to carry a meaning more than a use.

Fascinated by theatre, poetry and cinema, she searches between words and images to find tools that challenge the way we apprehend society - by society she means how we relate to each other and to our surroundings. As preferred tools, she uses performance and stage-settings to blur the boundaries between props and objects, fiction and reality. Understanding Design as a tool to shape behaviors she is a scriptwriter. Apprehending forms as three dimensional images, she is a scenographer. Familiar and disturbing at the same time, her aim is to create situations*.
