I am a first-generation Cuban American queer designer with a BFA in Visual Design from Pratt Institute. I have over 6 years of experience in a variety of design disciplines, including visual design, communications design, product design, illustration, and animation.

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."
