I'm Melissa - a graphic designer and surface designer based in Calgary, Alberta Canada. I have a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications from AUArts (ACAD) and over 19 years in the design industry, collaborating with clients and stakeholders to create thoughtful and compelling visuals.
As a surface designer, my goal is to spread a bit of joy through my work and to the world around me. I am drawn to vibrant colourways, playful motifs and bold graphic shapes. I create patterns and illustrations for home decor, textiles, kitchenware, paper goods and more.
As a graphic designer, I work with large and small businesses, non-profit organizations and retail clients to produce visuals that engage audiences and showcase brands. My services range from conceptual brand development and marketing - to editorial, publication design, pre-press and production.
When I'm not designing or creating something, I spend my free time outdoors with my family - camping, hiking, kyaking and cross country skiing. I have a real passion for home decor and vintage treasures. I gather inspiration from the time I spend unplugged and in nature, in the kitchen, and from frequenting antique stores and flea markets.
