Bonjour, I’m Mel.

The French half of our studio. I’m an illustrator and graphic designer with 15+ years experience in the creative field.

I started as a textile designer living in China in 2005. An incredible experience where I learned everything about textile, pattern and repeat. After moving back to France, I continued developing textile collections in the home decor industry.  In 2011, I moved to the US and dedicated myself to working full-time as an illustrator.

My versatility as an illustrator is one of our studio’s best attributes. I’m able to adapt to a variety of styles, staying true to each client’s aesthetic while keeping it unique and personal.  


Hey, I'm Matt.

Over the past 15+ years I’ve focused on designing distinct packaging, product, and merchandising experiences for well-known CPG brands.

Collaboration is the key to developing creative solutions that align with your strategy and ultimately win in the marketplace.  I’m a firm believer in transparency and engaging with our clients throughout the creative process.

I bring a more technical approach to design which balances well with Mel’s very pure creative spirit.  Our close collaboration allows us to move quickly and produce exceptional results for our clients.
