You're sold on your story and you're passionate about getting heard.
Your story deserves to be heard.
You deserve to work with a designer that understands and supports your dream
—one who believes in it as much as you do.
I’m Melody, a graphic designer and creative entrepreneur that’s crazy about my tribe of hard-working, passionate writers. I own Finicky Designs, my life's calling that I use to create cohesive, well-designed books and brands for writers just like you.
Self publishing is an awesome industry that's opened the publishing world to ALL writers—and valuable information sharers (who wouldn't even consider themselves "authors"—but guess what? They ARE!). I've been frustrated with seeing amazing writers not be represented well with their visuals, which is why I decided it was time to take my design style and publishing industry experience and offer self-published authors a way to run with the big dogs.
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. Got my bachelor degree in graphic design and started Finicky Designs to help writers three years later. Caring about your brand is important, and you deserve someone who is going to put in the effort to create something as unique as you.
You could have killer visuals that get you noticed, make you shine, and bring you the readers and clients you desire.
I can't wait to get finicky about your endeavors, and help you create something truly meaningful and lasting!
Whether it’s your book cover, your logo, or simply your business cards for an author convention—Finicky Designs will make sure your image represents who you are, what you do, and what 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!
