Hi! I’m Melissa — a human being and semi-expert at balancing things whilst riding a bicycle and baking sourdough bread. Currently practising mindfulness through meditation.
By day, a Creative Thinker and Brand Designer since the year Lost in Translation was released in theatres. Over the past 17 years, I’ve worked with various design studios and agencies in the fields of Branding (& Retail Environments), Tech, Digital, Product/Industrial and Publishing. In 2015, I earned a Bachelor of Design in Graphic Design from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague after many a boterhams and kapsalons.
Crafting visual stories and shaping (typo)graphic narratives and forms are my passion. Directed a typographic screenplay, designed a new Dutch economic reality, and made an ode(ntity) to pizza, to name but a few.
Here you’ll find a selection of mostly serious work. Conceptual ones can be found on melissachan.nl.

I’m currently on the 👀 look-out for remote work opportunities, let’s connect ✨
