About Us

When we first envisioned MelD Studio, we set out to create a new kind of design firm not readily available in our region; one that is creative, energetic, and collaborative with both our clients and among us as a team. We got to know each other as colleagues at other firms where we developed a keen friendship and mutual respect for each other’s work. We work hard to carry all of that positive, creative, collaborative energy through to our relationships with our clients and firmly believe that is what makes us most unique.
