Melissa Baines Graphic Designer and Photographer

About My Personal Journey

Hello, thank you for taking time to inquire about me and my work. I have been working as a graphic designer for many years, even before I went to school to get my degree in graphic design. I love clean simple design. I'm inspired when I see a well put together layout and I want to create that for you. While in school, I participated in a basic photography course and was hooked! I wasn't expecting to become obsessed with learning everything I can about photography, but I did. I once read, what you do in your free time is what you should be doing. I spend all my free time editing and shooting images! Everything I read and watch is Photography or graphic design related!

Fun fact: For our 10 year anniversary, my husband was going to get me a beautiful diamond ring. I asked for a 50mm prime lens instead. 


Graphic Design

 Sometimes I buy something just because I love the package design. Graphic design is about solving a problem and making it look good! 


Photography for me is a beautiful moment in time that I get to freeze or create with my camera and then share with the world.
