Meet Manuela Schmidt, Production Designer

A graduate of the Hamburg College of Architecture, Manuela’s career as a production designer for film, commercial and television was preceded by her work as a stage designer at various theaters in Hamburg/Germany.

She formed her own set design and construction company EXPOSITION STUDIO in Los Angeles in 2003. Manuela has worked as production designer on feature films, TV shows, commercials and music videos as well as events and sets for stage productions in Europe and the United States.

Manuela is known for her work on Thy Neighbor’s Wife, Rachael vs Guy, Beauty and the Geek, Scream Queens and a variety of Food Network shows.

Manuela’s favorite design periods range from 50’s style to Mid-Century Modern, but when it comes to work projects, she likes to put just about anything on the set.


The Design Dare team challenged Manuela Schmidt & Heidi Miller to compete scenically at the FormDecor warehouse. Each designer had a 10′ x 15′ space, 1 hour, 2 FormDecor team members and the entire FormDecor inventory to choose from!
