An individually run design studio

I’m Mel, a Manchester-based designer and art director. Lovely to meet you.

My aim is to connect brands with people through clean aesthetics, unique design elements and user-focused solutions. 

Services include—web design, branding, logo design, packaging, illustrations, and art direction.

I strive to create a positive and transparent environment while working together. I believe it’s all in the process; listening to your design problems and working together to craft a conceptual solution to bring your ideas to life. 

Arriving at the best solution for each unique project that leaves you feeling confident and excited to launch your business into the world keeps me inspired every day.

I’m always interested in meeting new people to create something meaningful—so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
