MELANIE ARAAS

GRAPHIC DESIGNER  |  ENTREPRENEUR

After graduating from the Black Hills State University in 2001, I worked as a advertising designer for newspapers and eventually Anheiser-Busch as a graphic and signage designer, all while growing my design clientele. In 2008 I decided to take the leap and pursue the business full time after leaving my current job and safety net. However, I have never looked back! Being in this versatile field of work has allowed my free and independent spirit to have the flexibility to be at home with my two boys, meet them off the bus and well, who are we kidding, work in my sweatpants and slippers, while occasionally taking off to go fishing when the days are nice! Every day is different and I have been continually blessed by the community we live in by continuing to grow a long and satisfied client list.

CREATIVITY, INTUITION
AND DETERMINATION

Chances are, you’re a business owner who understands what makes your business or your idea special. No one else knows your vision as well as you. Most likely your business is way more than a hobby or a whim. So presenting your visual brand identity is a crucial step in your continued success. This is where I come in! If you are looking to partner with a smart, talented brand designer, you’ve come to the right place!

MY PROCESS

Most people have never worked with a designer before. It may be a different concept so if you read on, you can learn a bit of background on how I cruise through the design process. It involves things like discussing your vision, making a plan to fit your needs, how payment works and lots of other fun things!

THE NITTY GRITTY

No, not the dirt band with one particular ballad I like to belt out when I’m alone in my car…this talks about all things on the side of what you can expect for investment in this process. Since essentially every project I work on is different, prices do fluctuate and I am happy to provide a custom quote for your project or idea. Hit me up!
