          Happy Clients

          "Melissa is a trend setter. She brings fresh, cutting edge creativity and intoxicating enthusiasm to just about anything she touches. She is deeply curious by nature, and sincerely interested in her clients - whether guiding a design process or seeking out the most original strategic marketing angle. Her engaging personality and professionalism makes her an absolute pleasure to work with."

          Lesley Cox
          Taos, New Mexico | Feel Design

          "Melissa Lind is so helpful in explaining web! She has an artist’s eye and a techi brain—good combo. Pure Genius!"

          Shelia Ross
          Taos, New Mexico | A Shelia Ross Studio

          "I cannot rave enough about Melissa. She redesigned my independent press site, 3: A Taos Press, for computer and iPhone, helped me display my online bookstore, continues to update my site for my authors, all the while doing the web work in a timely and professional manner. I recommend her to all my colleagues. I routinely receive compliments on my beautiful website. The best of the best!"

          Andrea Watson
          Denver, Colorado | 3: A Taos Press, Founding Publisher & Editor

          "Melissa is tough when she has to be and always has a sense of humor. Two very important qualities, absolutely necessary, for completing a business web site, which often is a very personal experience. Her design sensibilities and consistency of design are impeccable. And she was always available to help me through the digital confusion."

          "It has been is a delight to work with Melissa Lind on several photographic and promotional projects. Melissa did a fantastic job creating my new venture, developing both the photography and website design. She gives me excellent advice on how best to use the website to increase my business."

          Dr. Adair Landborn
          Tempe, Arizona | Professor

          "It’s always a privilege to share testimonials for those whose talents and skills add value to your life and business, but it’s something entirely different to share one for someone whose acumen, wisdom, knowledge, experience, insights, vision and creativity take you beyond the ordinary and bring out the most extraordinary aspects of who you are and what you desire to give to the world.
          Melissa falls into this category and is unlike anyone I’ve previously worked with, on both personal and professional endeavors. Melissa is a creative genius with a rare and unique gift of bringing exactly what you desire to share, build and create into the world in a way that goes beyond what you originally desired; she grows it in magnitude and showcases it in a way that is clear, concise, accurate and represents your most authentic voice.

          Kellie Caldwell
          Grand Junction, Colorado | Business Owner

          "I struggled with putting all the marketing pieces together and Melissa dove right in to understand my clients, thinking outside of the box with the ideas about partnering with local galleries and restaurants. Big agencies were too expensive, impersonal or inexperienced; I would not have gotten the same creativity working with anyone else. I am comfortable telling Melissa information about my business; like when I didn’t get a job, she wanted to know why I didn’t get the job and if there were things I could do better to get it the next time. She brings continuity to our marketing with high energy and indelible creativity.
          Dwelling Creative is an essential part of my team."

          Kevin Reed
          Asheville, North Carolina | Bluestone Construction

          "Melissa is a rockstar. Talented, creative, client-focused, versatile, timely, communicative and a pure joy to work with. She makes every project feel unique and special, from the first meeting to the final deliverable."

          Emily McCaffrey
          Washington | Copywriter

          "As we all know a great web design is not just all the pretty pictures it is also a carefully designed experience. Melissa is whip smart and fast on her feet when it comes to the underlying architecture that makes marketing deliver a personal experience. This is an essential quality when the internet is forever perched on shifting sands."

          Chad Manley Design
          Taos, New Mexico | Contemporary Furniture

          "Before Melissa even started building our site, she spent time with us. She wanted to know our story, who we are and what we wanted to communicate. With powerful questions and intuition, she was able to develop an incredible marketing strategy that we felt was truly able to articulate the essence of who we are and what we do as a family business."

          "Melissa is nimble and flexible- and always good humored, happily assisting with long or short term projects. She has helped with graphics for advertisements, email blasts with customers, social media promotions, blog posts, editing my photos, etc. She even stepped up to help with new product photos- which has been a great help! She has become a vital part of my business- I know I can rely on them to maintain my website, address marketing, PR and press requests."

          Liz Pulver
          Brooklyn, New York | Landscape Architect

          "Melissa's work and insight is topnotch! She is responsible for selecting and editing my Instagram feed, blogs, and website updates. Her responsiveness and attention to detail are excellent, and as a designer, her aesthetic is in line with much of my own work. She is a joy to work with as well! I recommend her highly!"
