Mel Hill Design Studio
Creative Inspiration Working For You.
Graphic design is more than images. It’s about communication. It’s about creating meaningful connections between people, products, and brands. Powerful designs communicate intent, engage the mind and delight the soul.
Listening is one of the most important graphic design skills out there. Without it, a designer is just making so many pretty pictures. Communication is key to the design process. I will lead you through the process, and not only will we work toward a design that sells, you’ll understand why it works.
Let my grounding in psychology, blogging, and marketing help you as we co-create designs that are powerful symbolic activators for your business. Together we can take you to the next level. Are you ready?
Vision becomes reality
I work with you to discover the interaction between target market, business model, and your own unique spark to create a visual branding that not only connects to your clients and customers, but does so in a way that is an expression of your deepest self.

I’ve worked in many media over the years, using analog mediums like linocut and watercolor as well as digital work doing everything from logo design to ebook layout to animations in After Effects. I love working back and forth between mediums and methods to create the perfect mood.
What Clients are Saying:
I am not well versed in articulating my ideas, but Melissa was able to help me put my vision on paper. She worked with me to solve issues with how the images looked on various screens/monitors and she made sure that what she was designing was exactly what I had in mind and would use. Melissa made the process easy, was open to my suggestions and I enjoyed working with her. I love the final product and can't wait to use it to market my podcast.
Your Brand Brought to Life:
Using fonts, colors, styles, photos, and layout we will build you a brand style unique to your business and your vision.
I lay out everything you need to know in order to implement your brand style across all media including print, web, and social media.
The branding process is an ongoing action, and with every interaction with the public you have an opportunity to reinforce your brand proposition. It is my goal to help you do that in a way that is effective and creative.
