Bonjour, I’m Anne Gineste, Founder and Managing Director of French Vision. I was born and raised in Toulouse in the South West of France, and at the age of 17, after graduating with a Baccalaureate, I was ready to enter “L’Ecole des Beaux Arts” (Art School) to pursue my love for art and graphic design. Unfortunately, my parents believed that art was not a serious career, so I focused my studies on business.
After over a decade in various marketing roles covering a wide range of industries, including media, oil and gas, aerospace, IT, and travel, I earned an MBA from City University, London in 1991.
In 1992, my path crossed that of an Emirati businessman who offered me a job in Abu Dhabi in the fashion and cosmetics industry. I embraced the challenge and never looked back. Two years later, I joined an interior design company, where I worked until I was offered opportunity to teach business at Abu Dhabi Women’s College in 1995, where I spent six wonderful years immersed in Emirati culture and traditions.
Then, in 2002, I decided it was time to combine my business experience with my long-held passion for graphic design and visual communication, so I established French Vision as a full service graphic design and branding agency.
The French Vision team springs from diverse cultural backgrounds, religions and experiences – a melting pot of French, Italian, American, Jordanian, Egyptian, Syrian, Filipino, Indian and Pakistani. Our staff of 14 includes 4 Art Directors, 3 Graphic Designers, 2 Account Managers and 4 Marketing Coordinators.
We have one motto: One team – One vision.
I believe that our clients deserve the best, and they have recognized our commitment to them by remaining loyal to us for many years.
We have in-depth knowledge in developing creative annual and sustainability reports, B2B branding, events collateral items, and more. Each project is a new opportunity to think, dream, polish and perfect.
When required, I invite other talented partners to cooperate with us to fulfill our clients’ needs, such as excellent 2D or 3D animation studios, photographers, writers, videographers, social media pros and more.
Through a collaborative and attentive process, I’m confident that we have everything it takes to consistently deliver high-quality designs and effective marketing solutions for our valued clients.
