I illustrated a children’s book!

It has been a pleasure to work with Melissa on the illustration of our children’s picture book. She is a dedicated, creative, and collaborative team member. Melissa has a wonderful ability to openly accept feedback while also expressing her artistic vision. I am immensely appreciative of her hard work and commitment to our joint goal!

New work
@growwithGoogle

Melissa worked with our team creating over 25 unique enamel pin designs for our client Google. Not only were her designs creative and flawlessly executed, she was a pleasure to work with. She responded promptly to emails, delivered all work in a timely manner, and was very communicative during the entire process. And the results were amazing. Our clients were so happy! Melissa is a truly talented design and illustration professional and I cannot wait to work with her again.

What people are saying

Melissa’s approach to the design of our book cover was thoughtful. In our field, book covers tend to be staid or childish. Melissa’s design struck a perfect balance of professional and approachable. When I see our book on a table at conferences, it clearly stands out. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Melissa is an excellent collaborator — not only can she create an engaging and interesting concept, she is a quick editor and open to suggestions, direction changes and revisions. We are always happy with the work she submits!
