Fanette Mellier was born in 1977 and graduated in 2000 at the École supérieure des arts décoratifs in Strasbourg. She performed her vocational training in ateliers under graphic talents like Pierre Di Sciullo and Pierre Bernard. In 2004 she started the independent career as a graphic designer for publishing firms, but also in the cultural and social field. She collaborated with the Festival international de l’affiche et du graphisme of Chaumont from 2007 to 2009, where she realized a project that linked graphic design with literature.
Her research is mostly directed toward the printed object. She has contributed to lots of magazines and graphic festivals and her works have been on display in numerous contemporary art museums and centres, such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
