A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Design has been a passion of mine for many years—from my early days (before even turning double digits) when I would put together the “family newsletter” using Microsoft Paint, to my first real job as a designer at a large print shop—I have always loved this industry and dreamed of running a business!
I started this company in 2009 as a side hustle while working full time. As our family grew, I was blessed to be able to grow that side hustle into a full time dream job, working from my home studio while building a team of contractors to support me. I'll often say "we" when talking about my business because I couldn't do it all without them or the family and friends who support me along the way.
HELLO, I'M MELISSA
WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT?
I AM A BUSINES OWNER
In addition to Branch Creative, my husband and I are owners of Severance Brewing Company in downtown Sioux Falls, SD. This endeavor has gifted me with the experience of being on both sides of branding; as client and designer.
As a business owner, I understand the decision making, passion and grit it can take to run a business. As a brand strategist and designer, I also realize the importance of building a brand and the intricacies of graphic design.
I'm excited to bring both perspectives to the table and to help you rock this.
