Workspace | Finicky Designs


I’m Melody, a graphic designer and creative entrepreneur that’s crazy about my tribe of hard-working, passionate business owners and writers. I own Finicky Designs, my life's calling that I use to create cohesive, well-designed brands, books, and print material.

I've been frustrated with seeing amazing businesses not be represented well with their visuals and through their self-published books. So over three years ago, I decided it was time to take my design style, in-house design and marketing experience, and publishing industry knowledge and offer the "little guys" a way to run with the big dogs with professional, modern designs.

You could have killer visuals that get you noticed, and bring you the clients and readers you desire.

I started as a 10-year-old that wanted to sketch with her grandma down by the creek. Then I grew up and realized I wanted to turn my creativity into a tangible career that helps others.

Never did I imagine that 20 years later, I'd be running my own business, helping dozens of clients each year create something truly meaningful and lasting. I work from home, which allows me to be a part-time stay-at-home mom to an energy-packed 14-month-old, while working with clients all over the world as well as other designers who contribute their amazing talents to the Finicky Designs team.

I live in Palmer Lake, Colorado, and can't get enough of the outdoor beauty that surrounds me as I spend my time camping and hiking with my husband (of over 7 years), son, and two big dogs. Rumor has it that the way to my heart is through french toast and foxes. I love God, multiple cups of coffee, and serving others. 

I can't wait to get finicky about your endeavors, and help you create something truly meaningful and lasting!

Whether it's your logo, your book cover, or simply your business card - the Finicky Designs team will make sure your image represents who you are, what you do, and what's you're about.


I can't tell you how happy and thankful I am with your idea. This is my life's work, and it's been so hard getting it off the ground because of other things that require my attention. There are so many things that I will be doing with this business—teaching the journal writing workshops, helping people write their memoirs, writing my own memoir. Your work is so wonderful and has brought to life the crazy ideas in my head!
