Here are some of the fantastic people who love what I’ve done for them.

There is no doubting Melissa’s talented creative enthusiasm. This combined with a focused, entrepreneurial outlook to her craft is why we utilise her specialist skills which have become an integrated component of our marketing strategy.

Melissa displays a flair for design which is aligned to an informed understanding of our business environment and target market. Always being ready to make suggestions and being open to alternative ideas adds value to our engagement.

Melissa brings an element of commercial professionalism sometimes lacking in the creative space in meeting deadline commitments and staying within budget guidelines.

With her energetic and insightful approach to assignments we look forward to continuing our productive and rewarding relationship.

Stuart Wood

Director, Vanguard Fire & Safety Cape

I needed a good website that would attract clientele and better indicate our expertise.

You are warm, bright, and go the extra mile to understand the discipline and problems at hand.

I looove my new brand direction. It encapsulates me as a person, my passion for the work I do and the ethics of our business.

Loved the pace we set, each recognising and respecting the other’s schedules, loved your energy, enthusiasm, passion and determination to grasp me and my brand

Julie Rathbone

Owner, Qualitative Quarter

I love working with Mel.  She just gets it, does everything right and has helped me grow my profile and business exponentially.

Consistently thoughtful and creative.  We appreciate the consideration Melissa has brought to every project.

Andrew Keaveney

Art of Living Retreat Center, Boone, North Carolina

I was struggling with my sidebar, website security (the “https” stuff), and how to organize my blog categories.  You explained to me until you were sure I understood everything.  You were very supportive, plus, having you on a call talking to me while I took notes was amazing.  Now I have all the information plus tools I need to move forward with my website.  It felt fantastic to get all your answers in just one call.

It was amazing that I could explain my needs to you, and you had answers to my questions. Very energetic and professional person to work with.

Zoé Rodz

Chef Zoé Rodz

I needed to take my website up a notch and install an online store, I also needed some serious help with my SEO.

Melissa created solutions to fit my needs and current set up, explained it all in easy to understand English (not web jargon) and your down to earth approach made it easy for me to understand it all.

I am excited to see my brand go to the next level and grow into the industry with enormous success.

Kim van Vuuren

I needed a beautiful online presence that was user friendly and interactive. You have been so patient and so helpful… and I have learnt so much from you during the process! 

You are a strategic thinker (not just a window dresser), you are patient, you give sound advice and hold yourself to high ethical standards. The fact that you are super witty and entertaining is an added bonus.

I am so proud to be able to fluff my online feathers!!!

Vicky Du Toit

Owner, Kiekie Communication

I enjoyed Melissa’s approach. There was a clear process, but that structure created a framework for the design. It especially facilitated the story around the business and the visuals that made it come alive.

I am constantly learning more from working with Melissa. Websites are evolving and she uses video tutorials that are easy to apply. I am especially happy with the way the platforms are now working together across the website, blog and social media

Melissa took what was a big, important goal for me and helped to achieve that really well, and on time. She did this through a structured approach, bringing my business ethos and offering to life in the site.

Keryn House

Owner, Houseway Consulting

I was about to spend a lot of money on a premium Wix subscription.  You pointed me in the right direction and saved me a pretty penny.  I now host my website for less than ZAR50 per month.  Your passion for helping others is evident.

It has been a great pleasure having you do our site and we are very happy with the results!

The content is amazing and you have done an amazing job.

Thank you very much.

Wild World Tours

Melissa added content to my website when I didn’t have the time to work out how to do it.  She did the work I needed her to do and she provided advice on some aspects where I was unsure on which direction to go.  I am relieved that the website is finished.  You were efficient, friendly and worked outside business hours to meet my deadline.  Thank you!
