I LOVE creativity and the act of creating. When I was little, I made my own scratch n’ sniff books with gum wrappers, perfume and drawings. As I got older, I discovered digital design: I designed flyers and t-shirts in high school and in college was completely captivated by the world wide web. For me, the magic is in tying pieces of information together with visual meaning – it’s like playing with a puzzle and finding a way to make everything fit together.
I’ve worked for cosmetic companies, designed stationery, handcrafted invitations, and developed logos and websites for all kinds of fascinating people. Which leads me to another thing that I love: hearing people’s stories and learning why they do what they do! And if I can fit even the littlest bit of their story into their website or logo design? Well, I really LOVE that.

Melissa created a visually stunning website for my company from conception to launch. I owe so much to Melissa for creating my stunning logo - my logo has become the face of my company and without her expertise and creative eye I wouldn’t be where I am today professionally.
Melissa is a dream collaborator. She has guided and delighted me through multiple projects from logo and business card design to a complete website renovation. She is creative and she is relentless. Her level of service is beyond any expectation.
I cannot recommend Melissa highly enough. She is a pleasure to work with and brimming with talent. She is resourceful and dedicated with an admirable sense of ownership not always seen in someone so artistically gifted.
