Melissa Balkon

Brand Strategist

Melissa has over 15 years of graphic design experience, covering everything from print design to strategic branding and digital design. She's been able to work with clients and projects of all shapes and sizes, but has a developed a soft spot for small businesses and startups who want to leverage design to grow their organizations.

Self-proclaimed as “consistent to a fault,” brand development comes naturally to her. She relishes helping clients uncover their uniqueness, in order to leverage it into a timeless brand image that reaches into all corners of an organization. From website, to marketing collateral, to internal communications, Melissa believes that successful organizations design each moment, because every touchpoint is a chance to provide moments of delight and build brand equity with customers and staff.

Melissa is very active in the Phoenix design community, having worked on the Phoenix Design Week and Method + Madness conference planning committee for two consecutive years, first as Design Director, followed by Creative Director. Additionally, she also runs a local meet-up for freelance creatives and is part of the communication team for the Arcadia campus of Redemption Church.

When not hard at work (which is rare), you'll find Melissa tackling a home improvement project, working out at the gym, or practicing painting.
