From one side of the world to another, here’s what a handful of my clients have to say..
“This - is - amazing. Thank you so much!!!! I am absolutely over the moon. It is such a relief to finally have found someone that really gets what I was trying to go for, and I even gave you far fewer documents than I did my first designer. I really hope this can continue into a long term partnership!!! I only wish I had come to you first time around now. How refreshing and astonishing to have a whole pack of incredible concepts the first time around this time!”
“Mel Volkman: design extraordinaire & miracle worker. Not only did she help me craft the strategy for my business (with a very insightful workbook) she brought the brand to life with her stunning work. Every design was crafted with purpose, intent & a spark of creative genius. Her expertise, eye for beauty, and timeliness made the whole experience professional & enjoyable. I am soooo happy with the outcome and would definitely recommend Mel for any design projects going forward.”
— JEAN MADDEN, DUXTON HOUSE | SINGAPORE
“Mel is super talented and has been a dream to work with. When I came across her work and got a sense for her taste, innovation and attention to detail, I knew that she was the designer for me. Her brand discovery process is extremely thorough and she clearly puts a lot of thought into each brand that she works with. I have absolutely loved everything that she has produced so far and it captures so well the style and understated elegance of the brand that I was hoping to achieve. It has been amazing seeing my brand come to life and I would absolutely recommend Mel for all and any design project!”
— CHARLOTTE NICHOLS, CHARLOTTE NICHOLS WEDDINGS | LONDON, UK
“Mel has been amazing to work with. Her brand discovery process is detailed and asks the right questions. She keeps the deadlines and expectations clear, and communicates without delay. Besides being a pleasure to work with, she is insanely talented. Her taste is impeccable, her design skills will blow you away! Whether you are looking for a branding makeover or a start of a new company, she is your girl!”
— KATERINA GRAY, GEMMA + FILO | AUSTIN, TX
“I’ve had the best experience working with Mel. She is professional, prompt to reply, extremely creative and has been integral in bringing my brand to life. I would highly recommend her and consider it a worthwhile investment for any business. Thank you for all your hard work. To say I’m excited would be an understatement. I love that you thought outside the box and provided so many options! You truly went above and beyond. Seeing all the different options made me very sure about my decision with this logo, so thank you!”
— STEPHANIE MAST, REVISED NUTRITION | OCEANSIDE, CA
"I cannot even begin to tell you what a dream Mel is to work with. Working with her has been seamless and easy from day one. Everything was so beautifully done. She immediately understood my vision and created a beautiful, timeless brand look for me. She is so thoughtful with everything she touches and really wants it to look its best. The schedule and deliverables were always clear and easy to understand. She did everything for me - logo, branding, website, ecommerce store, etc... and all of it was awesome. Worth every penny!"
— SARA BARNEY, BANDD INTERIORS | AUSTIN, TX
“When I came to Mel, I was in need of full branding service – like yesterday. My planners were just an idea in my head. She was able to listen to my words and create a timeless brand. Her attention to detail made the design process smooth and exciting. She really took the time to understand and gather a feel for my company. Not only did she listen to me, she gave me credible advice to take my brand to the next level. This was my first investment in my company and I could not be more pleased with her professionalism and talents. She is truly a gem to work with!”
— ALEXA WILLIAMS, THE PLANNING COMPANY | DETROIT, MI
“Mel is simply amazing. When our company began the journey of creating a brand for ourselves, we were absolutely clueless…literally! We knew we wanted a logo but had no idea what we wanted it to look like. I reached out to Mel, and after our first conversation I knew she was the perfect person for the job. We worked together to create a professional and unique logo and website for our company and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Mel’s creativity, patience, and professionalism are beyond what I ever expected.”
— CRYSTAL ALLEN, USINA CONTRACTING, INC. | ST. AUGUSTINE, FL
“I had a lovely experience working with Mel. After a look at her design portfolio, I knew she would be the designer of the logo for my blog. Mel is very professional and easy to talk with. I had a vision of my logo in mind, but she turned it in an even more beautiful logo. I am really in love with it and I can’t thank her enough for this.”
— NIKITA VERHAEGEN, PERSONAL BLOG | HOFSTADE, BELGIUM
"Mel grasped my needs and designed a stunning logo. It's great to work with someone who understands your needs and is responsive. Thanks Mel!"
— TAIM ALFALASI, GLOC & PEACH OF CAKE RESTAURANT | DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
“As a designer myself, I was initially hesitant on hiring another designer to do branding for a fitness blog I wanted to start. I’ve always found designing for yourself to be harder than designing for a client and after months of trying but coming up short, I reached out to Mel and could NOT be happier that I did! My only regret is that I didn’t get in touch with her sooner. The final brand was exactly what I wanted but couldn’t quite nail down myself. She was quick to respond and kept me updated throughout the entire process. I would not hesitate again to come to her for any future branding needs."
— KENDRA HOWARD, PANCAKE BUTT FITNESS | LITTLE ROCK, AK
“Mel was truly a joy to work with and really helped me to visualize what I wanted for my brand. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a designer. Not only will she give you feedback on your ideas, she’ll give you explanations on why she feels a certain design would be best. I would absolutely love to work with her again and hope that I get the opportunity to. She’s also very easy to talk to – while this may seem silly, I have found that if someone you’re working with isn’t easy to talk to or you feel that you aren’t able to truly express what you want to them, they’re not the right person to work with. Mel is definitely the right person to work with – see for yourself!
— ALAINA HIRRAS, REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHY | PENSACOLA, FL
“Working with Mel was great! She brought a fresh perspective to creating the perfect brand for my company. And even though I am based in Vancouver, BC and we are in different time zones working with her was extremely easy. I highly recommend Mel and I would love to work with her again. Thanks for the amazing new logo, can’t wait to start sharing it!”
— BRETT YARISH, BRETT YARISH JOINERY | VANCOUVER, BC
“I filled out a very verrrrry detailed questionnaire. Probably the most precise questionnaire I have ever filled out, which I was very thankful for. As a multi-passionate creative, I like a LOT of things, a lot of different design aspects, which makes me incredibly difficult to work with when it comes to graphic design. With her detailed workbook, I felt as though she was peeking into my soul to find out what I REALLY wanted in a new brand. Mel Volkman showed up, took the reigns and nailed it.”
