Everyday is a challenge that needs to be conquered.

c'est moi

Hello, I'm Manuela Mesterhazy, a Swiss/Austrian digital designer. Being curious and expanding my horizon is essential to me.

I strongly focus on the visual part of the experience, because I believe that digital products not only have to function but also look beautiful and speak the brand's visual language in order to work for the user. My goal is to find the best solution for each client and to work in an environment that allows to experiment, innovate and is transparent.

Recently I was an art director at a customer experience studio based in Vienna. Before diving into the field of design, I dipped my toes into the hospitality industry. I have gained great working experience in both fields across the UK, Switzerland and Austria.

I am an openminded, determined and responsible person. I am a team player to the core; but I am also completely at ease working alone.

And of course besides all that - I'm a sucker for books, surfing the oceans brings me joy, and I'm always on the hunt for new places to explore.
