Studio Manager

Organizational savant, Russel is our voice of reason. He has an in-depth knowledge of design, publishing, and project management. He’s the go to for everything and is (almost) always willing to share from his stash of dark chocolate.

Marvin the Melon RGD (real good dude)

Melon Mascot

Marvin’s here to boost morale and improve communication in the workplace. He encourages us to take short breaks, get fresh air, and helps stimulate creativity and increase productivity (so we don’t lose our rinds!). He also speaks fluent Wookie.

our pledge to you

Greenmelon exists because, in our hearts, we believe businesses deserve better. Better branding, better messaging and better results. We believe in providing an unmatched return on investment. We break boundaries, take risks and challenge perceptions. And we never “dial it in”, unless we’re ordering pizza.

our process

Far too often branding and design are regelated to likes versus needs. Your brand’s success is not based on what you like or don’t like. It’s what will engage, get attention, and stand out. Brand success starts with a conversation.

Driven by Strategy

Research is boring? Really? For us there is beauty in the data and statistics are sublime. The path to your customer’s heart is through the numbers.

Creative Excellence

Sure, we have won international, national, and local design awards, but that’s only part of the equation. Our true success is the collaborative relationships we share with our clients.

Fueled by Collaboration

We are experts in building and strengthening compelling brands, but you are the expert in what you do. That’s why we ensure you are part of the process.

strategy, beauty, passion.
