I'm Mel, a first-generation Cuban American based in New York City with 5+ years of experience working in design and illustration.


I use my experience in visual design, graphic design, product design, UI/UX design, interaction design, illustration, and animation to lead and execute concept-driven projects from brief to delivery. 



When I'm not at my desk, I'm in my studio.

"Mel’s creative prowess is clearly visible in her work, but her ability to work with cross-functional teams and translate an idea into a creative vision, is unmatched. She’s a team player and a fantastic manager, setting clear direction while letting individual creativity thrive underneath her. She’s truly a joy to work with and for."

Director of Growth Marketing at EverTrue
