Hi there!

Thank you for visiting my illustration and design portfolio.

As you can see from my site, I’m a maker and a problem-solver. Growing up on the farm in rural Kansas taught me that if you’re making a cake and don’t have buttermilk, it’s a long drive to town so you’d better just mix milk with a little vinegar. And if you can’t find just the right scarf… well, teach yourself to knit and make it yourself. The fun is in the solving and in the making.

I’ve spent the first 9 years of my career making greeting cards for DaySpring Cards, and now I am embarking on a new adventure. I am looking for opportunities for collaboration in print and web. I specialize in:

  • Type design: making your project easily readable & aesthetically pleasing.
  • Corporate Identity: branding your company and creating a consistent look and feel in all areas of the company’s visual marketing.
  • Illustration: bringing ideas to life with traditional brush.

I’d love to get in touch with you to see how I can help meet your design and illustration needs. Text, call or email me to start the conversation.

I look forward to talking with you!

Melanie
