MERAKI comes from Greek. It can’t be translated into a single word; it represents the concept of doing something with passion, love and creativity; to put yourself into your work. A word that sounds so good, but, above all, that resonates so true. For us who still have the impression while working that we play like children; for us who do not separate pleasure from work. MERAKI is a way of life. And, we hope, maybe yours too.
After years of dreaming about it, MERAKI was born from the desire (and madness!) To embody our artistic vision of design in a unique product, imagined and designed as close as possible to those we love. Small, big-thinking branch of Pigment Design, MERAKI bears the signature of each (colorful) personality of our seasoned team, which has been passionate about the creation of local businesses for 10 years.
With a team keen on current trends, we create our exclusivities in the workshop, always putting quality first, while aiming for the shortest path between our creations and your environment. From the design of the patterns to the production, from the printing of the wall coverings to the installation, we accompany everything we do with daring, Pleasure and, we admit ... coffee too.
Guided by our values and our favorites, we also join forces with the many talents that abound in Quebec. Question illustration, we try to surround ourselves with the best designers and let you know and love them.
Here are our regular designers behind our bold and more muted designs.
Fanie is enthusiastic, spirited and determined. She is the founder of Pigment Design and MERAKI. Over the years, she has put on her best with a number of local businesses, designing projects tailored her image. She has formed a solid team around her creative word that shares a common vision and the desire to (re)create with everything.
Radiant, meticulous and frankly endearing, Mylène is one of those people we meet for the first time and with whom we would immediately share coffee and confidences. Reserved in appearance, she is full of ideas, overflowing with creativity and adding a touch of humor and lightness. We can no longer do without it.
Enthusiastic, rigorous and extremely effective, Élie knows how to make herself indispensable. When tasks are multiplying, she knows how to come to our rescue. Élie is a bit like our Swiss army knife: file preparing, prints at Bernard’s shop (her father!) and installations, her versatility is as impressive as her communicative laughter.
Marie-France is bright, positive and very caring, and sees beauty everywhere, whether in her work, in the nature she immortalizes on a daily basis and in human beings – which are her priority! She is an illustrator overflowing with imagination; she creates with a child's heart and shares, with open arms, her contagious happiness.
We are not forgetting those who have tinted MERAKI with their passion for beauty, their rigour and everything that makes them the unique humans that we love. Esther, for her positivism and dynamism. Nadine, for her brain bubbling with original and functional ideas. Ange, for having coloured our DNA, and many patterns, with her energy and talent. All three of you have played a huge role in the success of this project.
