Providing graphic design services in Sheridan, Wyoming and nationwide! This isn’t your average graphic design company. Or at least I hope not! I love to meet my clients at a local cozy coffee shop and I threw my business suits out years ago when I realized this thing I had going was actually going to work. I may do a few things unconventionally, but the bottom line is that I love what I do. When I see my clients succeed and I was even a small part of that, then I succeed too. No baloney.



Smith Alley Brewing Company + Public House >> brewery branding



Project Description

It’s important to take the time to truly understand your goals, customers, business, and industry before designing begins. That knowledge is essential in telling your story and in positioning your brand. I strive to understand your market and the challenges you face and translate those into effective design.


I take great pride in producing original, clean and intriguing creative. It’s valuable to me that your projects not only look good, but are intuitive, engaging, effective and functional. The success of your business is important to me. I love what I do and I apply that passion to every project I set my sights on.

I just finished working with Melanie on a project and it was fantastic! Melanie has a fresh, new prospective with her design and layout. She is able to really listen and understand what we wanted our end product to look like. Her work was completed on time and within budget. I would highly recommend Melanie for your next project – I know we will be using her services again.

I’ve lost count of the number of people I’ve sent Melanie’s way for outstanding design work. She is always my first call when I need a logo, ad, website, photography or anything that’s going to make us look phenomenal. Melanie is a dream to work with and seems to read my mind when it comes to her design. Hire her!

“We first hired Melanie to create a web site for our new company, Vista West Engineering, during our start-up in 2006. The web site was very well done and did a great job of presenting all aspects of our new company. We went through a complete update to the web site in 2014 to move into a wide screen format and to present an entire fresh new look that would fit with wide screen computer monitors and tablets that were becoming more common. Given the volume of material we had on our web site, this was a monumental undertaking and was handled very seamlessly by Melanie. We have received many positive comments about our web site from clients, public agencies and personal associates over the years, which is entirely due to Melanie’s great eye for graphic design and ability to put that into an attractive and useable web site. Thanks Melanie for all of your years of great service to Vista West Engineering!”
