About me
Hi, I'm Melissa, a freelance graphic designer and photographer based in sunny Cornwall, UK. Email: contact@melissacarne.co.uk I work with start-ups, small businesses and entrepreneurs on business adventures by offering branding, packaging and content creation services. What I do not only helps you to improve your business but, gives you back your time to focus on the things that you love to do. My approach to design is ideas driven, meaning that everything is purposely designed to effectively communicate a message in its simplest form. A.k.a I don’t just make things look pretty, I get you results. The process of working with me is collaborative. Whether you are at the start of your journey or need a little help along the way, I want to hear your thoughts and ideas, you are the captain of this ship after all!
