About Melanie Pavao

In a few words, I'm a designer, illustrator, color junkie, type loving tea addict, dreamer of the muse. For work-love-play I’ve moved about the country from New England, to NYC, SF & finally Austin, TX. One of my favorite finds on this journey has been the Minted Community! At once I am humbled, inspired, encouraged & determined. It has been an invaluable resource for my creative growth & hopefully the start to many a beautiful things. Many thanks to Minted, my fellow Minties & our supporters.

No problem, Melanie! I was almost positive it was just one of those things you don't catch b/c you're looking at the design so much- I do it all the time! Such a cute design- your entries all look fab!

Hi Melanie, thanks for your kind comment and feedback. I had been thinking that the background needed darkening for contrast, so I really appreciate the suggestion. I love your work , your illustrations are wonderful!

Melanie, I just have to tell you how much I'm loving your business card designs. I've been doing blind voting, but every so often one catches my eye and I just have to see who did it... and the last four have been yours! Best of luck to you!
