I'm Mel Smith and I’ve been designing for over 10 years…. actually wait, it's WAY over that but let's stop counting….
I've had a crack at pretty much all facets of graphic design. The range of projects I've worked on have been diverse, as have been my roles; co-director, art director, account director and graphic designer!
My early years began creating below the line advertising including promotions, packaging and point of sale, as well as corporate communications and event management. I've worked with some really great big brands and some pretty fabulous small ones.
I'm now at my happiest designing logos and branding for existing companies and start-ups, getting them out there and making them look great.
I live in sunny Mount Maunganui with my hubby, two little squirts and a cat, and love being part of a thriving community.
what can i do for you?
I love branding! To be trusted with creating such an important part of your business is the ultimate honour.
I'll give you 2-3 logo options, apply one to your marketing collateral, make any changes and finalise your designs. I then supply your logo and files in whatever format you need (and if you don't know, don't panic - I've got it covered!).
Brochures, business cards, posters, point-of-sale, packaging and signage – basically anything that needs printing I can help you with.
I can arrange printing or supply you with print-ready files.
Need a website? I create simple, professional, easy to navigate websites for small businesses and start-ups. A basic website includes the design, adding content and going live. There's no monthly fee, just a Weebly hosting fee. Most people only need the Starter Plan.
And if you want a presence on Facebook I can set you up a page that ties in nicely with your website - perfect!
