SAY HI: MelissaRiggs13@gmail.com

I’m an art director/designer living in Kansas City. I concentrate on advertising, branding, social, design and most importantly, the creative idea. 

Let’s chat about how I can help your brand or company. Even if it’s just bringing your idea to life, I’d love to help.

I’ve had the privilege of working with brands like Target, Google Play, The United State of Women (An Obama Family White House initiative) and many more listed below.  

I'm originally from bourbon country, but I now call the midwest home.

On the weekends you can find me crafting away. I love working with dyes and on my loom. Check out my latest projects on my craft website.

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU

 

BRANDING. I love giving people that design edge that stands out. We’ll work together to make that vision come to life with my professional guidance.

 

WEB SITE DESIGN. I can make that idea you have come to life. I’m a pro at building beautiful and clean websites. I’ll work with you to make something simple or a platform to sell your goods.

 

MARKETING. I have done it all, all forms of advertising. I’ll tell you what’s best for your idea/business and I’m honest and to the point. I can work with your budget to come up with a scope of work that will for sure bring you business.
