Big Ideas Welcomed

Melbee recognizes the immense importance of connecting with your audience, whether you are in a SMALL community or a LARGE city. Bringing big picture-thinking to orgs and entrepreneurs in smaller towns and rural areas has a special place at Melbee.


Mel is Melbee’s lead designer. She will be your creative director, partner, and visual story teller.

At Melbee, Mel wanted to create a “design studio” that upheld transparency, listened to client needs, and encouraged clients to learn about how design can transform their organization or business. Mel also wants to give you the tools needed to keep moving your mission forward.

Mel is always creating; when not designing for others, she is probably working on her own artwork, a crochet project, or sifting through an ever-growing pile of books. Mel hails from a rural river valley in New Mexico; she now lives in the Albuquerque metro with her husband and their dachshund, Macy.

Melbee design studio is not an agency– we’re a community

Melbee refers and collaborates with other creative professionals (with similar values) like: photographers, videographers, IT/technologists, marketers, and artists. Are you a creative business owner who is interested in collaborating or networking with Melbee? Reach out.

It is time to tell your story & share your mission.

I am not in your same area, how will this work?

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes. All quotes outline payment options and generally, the total investment is broken into 2-3 payments over the course of the project.
