ABOUT COLIBRI

A few words to introduce myself...

Francesca Vittoria Manola

content manager, graphic designer, online and offline writer

LE COLIBRI GRAPHIQUE is me: after 9 years in France, in Nice, in august 2017 I've come back to Italy, in wonderful Venice, and I've created this small but very dynamic (and also somewhat atypical) content managing workshop.

For 20 years now I work with the world of visual and textual content online and offline and I put all my experience and my passion to provide my clients with the most creative and efficient content.

At first I create alone, but gradually, as the project takes shape, I can find, externally or inside the client's organization, the right resources, because a successful project in terms of budget as well, is not the one who set up immediately an enormous team but the one that knows how to use the right skills at the right moment and according to specific needs.

During the years, I have created a network of professionals and technicians of web, print, design, marketing that continues to grow and contributes to the successful conclusion of a project or of a part of it.

I invite you to discover here the services I provide, my personal working method and a small selection of projects that I followed and of ideas that spring at LE COLIBRI GRAPHIQUE.

A GLANCE ON COLIBRI

My steady values

WRITING AND COMMUNICATION

Knowing how to write without mistakes and in a simple and attractive language, but, above all, knowing the specific communication rules of each media: it is the first challenge for a content manager and also the most fascinating because the perfect mix of 26 little letters can make a real and significant difference.

KNOWLEDGE OF NEW MEDIAS

Nowadays, sending a message means also “twittering”, "facebooking", "instagramming", "googling", posting a picture instead of a hundred words, asking a question to attract attention, drawing a friendly doodle...

TECHNICAL KNOW-HOW

To each one his specificity, naturally, but to communicate it's vital to know the possibilities and limits of the chosen medium and, in some cases, also to know how to put hands-on work, for more flexibility, curiosity, need or simply to present a layout or a prototype project.

UX AND UI DESIGN

"User Experience Design" and, consequently, "User Interface Design" or, simply, take the role of those who were defined as end-users of the communication project: know their ability to take advantage of a site or an application, anticipate their challenges and their movements, capture their attention so that a project becomes a successful project.

DATA INTERPRETATION AND STATISTICS

Knowing how to read and interpret the information coming from the statistics can be very important for a project: for constantly updating informations, for changing messages when public changes, for predicting the natural declines of public attention and reacting in time...

CREATIVITY AND CURIOSITY

This may seems obvious but content managing is primarily a creative profession that draws in arts, literature, music, movies, photography, fashion, design and many other areas to feed and form itself. You can not be a content manager without having a bit of a storyteller soul...

Ideas for now and projects for tomorrow

WORDS, GAME, THREADS

Georges Perec

Starting from a small exhibition at the Alliance Française in Venice, I discovered a French author and crossword scientist, Georges Perec, who, by forcing his writings into mathematical, orthographic or formal cages, was able to earn the status of "acrobat of writing". Also interesting is the project of literary embroidery conceived in his honor by the Perecofil association.

MASS MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION

Umberto Eco

It was maybe the opening of a new comic library in Venice, but the fact is that I wanted to read again the interesting and timeless essay "Apocalypse postponed" of the wonderful Umberto Eco. How many thoughts at each sentence...
