Biography

Nicolas Ménard is a director and graphic artist. Originally from Montreal, where he studied graphic design while working for numerous media companies, he moved to London in 2012 to complete an MA in Animation at the Royal College of Art.

Nicolas' eye-catching universe combines illustration and graphic design in a poetic and conceptual approach. His commercial work includes a campaign of 18x short animations for Facebook (Facebook Groups), a playful, bold animated projection for Ray Ban (Get Creative at 116 Wooster), and a TV ident for the iconic MTV brand (MTV Ident).

Most recently, Nicolas’ beautifully crafted short film ‘Wednesday with Goddard’ — made for Channel 4’s Random Acts — won the animated shorts category at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival. The film is also 1 of only 87 films on the official selection list for the 2017 Annecy Festival.
