Melissa Design for Your Logo & Web Design Needs

Melissa DesignIf you read Bleeding Espresso or Goat Berries in feed readers and haven’t stopped by the actual sites lately, please pop over as they both have all-new looks.

They are similar because I wanted to have some continuity between the sites, and they are tied together by fabulous new logos by Melissa Muldoon of Melissa Design.

Have you seen Melissa’s portfolio of logos and web design projects?

I absolutely love my new Bleeding Espresso cup and beans as well as the Goat Berries heart and goat tracks, of course, but Melissa has so many other examples of great work, including the new and improved World Nutella Day logo and the websites of Bella Vita Italia and Bella Vita Italia Rentals.

I highly recommend Melissa if you have a graphic design and/or web design project in mind. She’s professional, fast, full of great ideas, and also really listens to the client’s requests — which can be a problem with some designers. In a nutshell, Melissa was just a joy to work with, and I really can’t recommend her services highly enough, so do have a look at the rest of her profile to get an idea of what else she’s done lately.

FYI You can also find Melissa Design on Facebook, and Melissa at her blog Diario di una studentessa matta (in italiano).

And for those who have asked me about the site designs of Bleeding Espresso and Goat Berries, I am using the Luxury WordPress Template by Curt Ziegler, also known as cudazi over at Theme Forest, and tweaked from there. Curt’s designs are *so* easy to tweak; they’re already user-friendly with so many choices for customization, but Curt also does instructional sheets and even videos — and is also available for questions. He generally responds within *hours* people. Seriously. I highly recommend both Theme Forest and Curt’s designs.

P.S. I also use one of Curt’s themes for, and Melissa also did that logo as well. What can I say? I just love their work.

So there you have it for those of you who were curious about the design of the new sites. And hey, as the holidays approach, why not treat you and your website to a whole new look? If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask — it’s always nice to be able to offer glowing recommendations, so thank you again to Melissa and Curt!

    Every design project is unique and starts my creative juices flowing, and each presents its own set of artistic challenges… but I have to say illustrating your goats and designing a logo for “Goat Berries” is about as much fun as a designer can have! Always a pleasure to work with you Michelle. A presto!
