I'm Melanie, and I'm an illustrator & designer based in Brighton.
I graduated from London College of Communication in 2014 with a postgraduate degree in Visual Communication.
Since setting up my studio in 2014, I have worked for a wide variety of clients: The Royal Opera House, The Whitworth Gallery in Manchester, Culture24 in Brighton to name but a few.
Illustration and design are my absolute passion. I have been drawing since I was knee high to a grasshopper, and have always loved putting pen to paper and seeing what emerges. I love working on commisions, as well as creating bespoke illustrations for clients. Much of my personal work incorporates the idea of both storytelling and participation.
Before working in design I worked for ten years as an arts producer for Artangel in London.
I still spend much of my free time in galleries & museums, or walking in the city to find those hidden treasures.
In addition to running Smith&Wonder, I have also created an innovative storytelling product for children, which is available to buy here: www.wearestory.co.uk
I am a member of the Association of Illustrators.
