About

I’m a graphic designer from the San Francisco, Bay Area. My spirit animal is fried chicken.

 
Taking in the ocean air at Point Bonita Lighthouse.
 

Hello!

I’m Mellani DeJesus: typography addict, forever optimist, minimal aesthetic enthusiast, and perpetual student of technology and design. Besides graphic design, my background also includes, product development, type design, promotional marketing, print making, and modern calligraphy. I love using digital tools and getting my hands inky in my creative process. My designs often include digital and handmade elements.

I enjoy using my talents to build lasting relationships and help empower entrepreneurs and small businesses to succeed in their goals. Having worked directly with clients as a graphic designer, I've learned to be a wiz at communicating expectations, navigating through brainstorming, incorporating feedback to improve my designs to suit a client’s needs, and bringing visions to life. I am also an experienced e-commerce shop owner and maker.

When I'm not in my creative flow, you can find me on my couch binge watching the Hallmark Channel, checking out new local restaurants, or trying to add more stamps to my passport.
