Welcome to my site! Let me introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me and what makes me tick. 

My name is Melody and I live in Colorado. Let me stop there for a moment. Colorado. Have you ever been to Colorado? It's pretty epic. I mean, I'm from California, went to school in Florida, definitely a beach lover. But this land-locked girl couldn't be happier with the view that's out her back window.


Anyways, I'm Melody and I live in Colorado. I have an awesome husband, have two (completely adorable) dogs, and love God. I like photography, hiking, camping, painting, sewing... I'm kind of all over the map when it comes to hobbies. I'm guilty of thinking that relaxing is equivalent to being lazy (don't judge, I'm trying to get better about it). I work fulltime as an in-house designer for a non-profit organization that helps children in poverty. This is who I go to work for every day, my sponsored child, Lenhle. She is how I know what I do matters.


Then I come home every night and work with local businesses to develop their image. I LOVE THIS. I love grabbing a cup of coffee and talking big visions, big dreams, and big ideas. My clients never cease to amaze me, and I always feel privileged that they let me be a part of their business journey.

So, what's up with my site and why should you stick around?

First off, I'm doing a business re-launch on January 1st, 2015! I'm totally going to get promotional items printed, and blow up giant green balloons, and probably make myself a cake with my logo on it. Then I'm going to party online and send out some design freebies to all of my followers (yep, that's you). More on that later, but here are some other reasons why you should stick around: 

  • If you take any interest in design, fun trends, and interesting color palettes, you'll find my monthly newsletter pretty cool. This will launch officially the beginning of January and will come with a freebie. So make sure you sign up!
  • Included in the newsletter will be a featured blog post, but if you want to receive every blog post in your inbox, make sure to subscribe via email (in the sidebar to the right). Blog posts will generally be about the graphic design industry with tips and tricks for both designers and small businesses. I'll also write about interesting personal experiences, aesthetically appealing design, and also share with you some of my favorite photos.
  • If you've stumbled across this site in search of a graphic designer, check out my portfolio as well as the design packages I offer. If you like what you see, head on over to my project request page to schedule a complimentary consult to talk about your business and your big vision for it. 
  • If you're a designer and want to network with me, feel free to send me a hello. I love making new friends, and sharing our experiences with each other is often critical to a successful design business!
