My name is Melanie and I'm the Founder and Designer here at Vision City design studio. I've been running my own freelance studio for about 15 years, specializing in music covers, packaging, church branding and corporate identity design. My wonderful clients include music artists, record labels, churches, corporate clients, and start up companies.
I graduated with a diploma in graphic design from George Brown College in Toronto, where I also worked for several years as a Fashion Model. My first real design commission was for an album cover, and from that point on I was hooked. Since then, I had the honour of art directing and designing for clients all over the world.
Along my journey, my husband Chris (aka Manafest) and I relocated to California, where I decided to dive deep into illustration. I loved it so much that I launched my very own art print collection, which sold successfully online, in stores (Land Of Nod, Ross, Wayfair, Walmart to name a few!) and at a wide range of curated art shows in the USA and Canada.
With the success of my art products, I felt it was time to share what I had learned with other visual artists, so over the next few years I created a series of online courses. These courses quickly took off and gained a following of over 30 thousand students worldwide.
Today, Vision City Design Studio is now once again focusing on my first love of music design, as well as church branding and corporate visual identity.
MUSIC COVER DESIGN
We meet with every music artist client to listen to your song or album themes and brainstorm unique and memorable ways to present it to the world. Then the fun begins and we create a powerful cover that will take your song promotion to the next level.
We turn album artwork into beautiful physical packaging design, so you can further connect with your fans and give them something unique to collect. We offer both CD and Vinyl Packaging.
We create timeless logo design and brand identity assets that make your church, non-profit, start up business or corporation stand out from the crowd and get noticed.
Social media assets
With every music art campaign, we offer a series of social media assets so you can easily post consistent content across all your socials, everywhere you fans hang out online. We do all the creative, you just post!
We turn your album cover into t-shirt designs and products that your fans can purchase from your online shop. This is one of our clients favourite ways to promote their new music and earn income at the same time. Ask us about print-on-demand method, so your products only get printed when you make sales. It's a beautiful thing.
