Whether you need online marketing or traditional business materials, I love to help businesses like yours succeed.

Refresh your brand and website and breathe new life into your business. Today, more than half of all website visitors are using their cellphone…is your website mobile-friendly?


From big branded spaces to little business cards, your brand needs a consistent vibe in all of your visual communications. Whether we are starting fresh or developing a project to fit into your existing identity, I’ll represent you authentically.

Let’s put my 30 years experience in advertising and graphic design to work for you.

Strategic Design for your Visual Marketing


Brand development


Your brand was created by you. It is the sum of your mission, core values, people, and personality. Does your logo and visual brand identity reflect who you are?

Would a brand audit uncover company-wide inconsistencies in visual materials?

Organic growth after years in business can lead to uneven branding.

A brand refresh breathes new life into a business – it unifies its message, reaffirms its purpose, and adds value.

Website Development


A modern responsive website at the heart of your company’s communications is essential in today’s marketplace.

Mobile devices have surpassed desktop computers as the tool of choice for online use. Smart phones are so powerful and the internet is so integrated into every aspect of our lives that many young customers don’t even own desktops.

Make sure your website is usable for all of your customers. You will rate higher in search engines and will get more web traffic.


Your promotional strategy and advertising media should match your goals.

Local TV, newspaper, online display ads, Google Adwords, Yelp, Facebook/Instagram, and Search Engine Optimization are all in our wheelhouse.

Boost the power of your website with a lead-generation strategy and conversion tactics.

BtoB or BtoC, this important work keeps your business vital and thriving.



Busy professionals are often frustrated handling their creative marketing projects. They find themselves out of ideas, cobbling together various vendors, and suffering through delays. They can end up frustrated and without traction or a cohesive solution. This costs them sales. 

The right marketing creative consultant is the answer. My experience and passion for effective communication is put to work for my clients in every project I do. What’s on your plate right now? Do you need fresh concepts or organization and implementation of your own ideas? Get in touch and let’s get started.

Been burned by disappearing designers or impersonal web factories?

Welcome to happy days. I’ll be there for you. 

After we struggled for 2 years with another web design and marketing company with absolutely no results, Melissa took our website and social media and totally revamped everything, concentrating on marketing, branding and the functionality of our e-commerce site. Within a matter of weeks, we had more on-line sales coming in than the whole previous 2 years. She is a brilliant marketing guru with all the talents needed to make things work all in one place! Thank you, Melissa, for taking our brand from bland to BAM! You are the BEST!

After a few conversations with Melissa about my company, I was pleased with her ability to sense what I want to say, through visuals, about the services I offer to teachers, schools, and school districts. I work with another graphic artist who maintains my website (Melissa also creates beautiful websites) and he and Melissa have worked well together on several projects. She’s a pro with the complex software and an expert design troubleshooter. I look forward to many more projects with Melissa in the future as I continue to grow with my company.

We have worked with Melissa on a number of projects, and I’m always grateful for her willingness to handle every aspect from concept and design to fabrication and installation. Her most recent project was a complicated Wall of Champions – three panels of vinyl banners, porcelain logos, aluminum flags, and more! Melissa managed multiple vendors and all the logistics, so that we only had one point person – her! She was attentive to detail, creative, and always upbeat.
