on brand strategy with a sustainable approach.
After more than 10 years in the industry, Marine has made a point to surround herself with a solid network of talented professionals that work alongside her on most of her projects.
Méïzou means ?
Méïzou’s founder was born and raised
in the green heart of France.
The word Méïzou is an old word that used to be spoken there.
Its literal translation would be “house” but it also conveys
a sense of comfort, belonging and coziness.
Of what makes us feel “at home”.
Méïzou’s logo is made of a typically French and familiar bird,
the “mésange”, comfortably tucked in its nest.
When talking about her creative process Marine says
“I love to create objects that we want to surround ourselves
with because they feel comforting and bring us joy. Long lasting objects that can grow alongside us, and that if and when we outgrow them we keep a special and fond memory of.”
At Méïzou we believe that carefully selecting materials, colours
and features make for smart trendy toy designs and better infantcare products. Working on every step of the design process alongside the client ensures that we create together a product perfectly fit for your brand and attractive to your customers.
Although Méïzou is based in France, our clients come from all over the globe!
