Mel - Logo - Teal


My name is Melissa Gouw and I am a 28 year old graphic designer currently residing in Perth, Western Australia. I am Indonesian, brought up in Auckland, New Zealand, studied my Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design & Creative Advertising in Perth, Western Australia.

My passions lie in typography. I love the way letters have their unique style that best capture businesses and tone of voice. Alongside vector illustrations, your business brand identity will be 100% uniquely designed. I like to think outside the box with my designs and creating connections you didn’t think were possible outside the obvious and norms.

I am currently trying to inspire the world online through social media with my journey in being a small business owner, freelancing from my couch and educating others to understand graphic designers a little better. I am mostly found on my Instagram having #nofilter chats with all things real while doing some cool projects. 

I would love to get to know you better!

I had a fabulous experience working with Mel on my recent rebrand. I didn't have a clear vision on what exactly I wanted when I reached out to Mel, I just knew what I definitely didn't want. Through trusting Mel's creative process and expertise, the end result was better than I had imagined. Mel was organised, communicated well throughout the entire process and most importantly, was patient with my indecisiveness which was greatly appreciated! I knew rebranding would change the game for my business, but I never could have anticipated the demand it has sparked. I'd highly recommend working with Mel on your next creative project. Thanks again Mel!

Mel made the whole process so easy and I’ll definitely be using her skills again! It exceeded my expectations (which was expected) and was more I could’ve asked for. Mel went above and beyond and I couldn’t have been happier with how everything worked out. Thank you!!

Mel has been amazing to work with. I came to her not knowing what I wanted and somehow she just knew what I needed, she helped push me out of my comfort zone and go in a direction with my business I would of never thought to go with. She knew exactly what I needed for my business in order to reach my business goals. Her work is so unique, I would highly recommend her to any other small business.

I came to Mel for a very special design that was close to my heart. It was a gift for my partner and it needed to be perfect because of its sentimentality. I loved how she took the time to find out exactly what I wanted, even though my description to her wasn’t the best! With Mel it isn’t about the next client, it’s making sure that every detail is done to perfection before handing over a finished product. In the end it was exactly what I had in my mind. It’s so beautiful and I cannot wait to give it to my partner and to have this piece in our family for generations to come.

What a blessing it has been to discover you. The way you have captured by brand and the essence of my business, even when I struggled to put into words what I was trying to emanate and was only giving you feelings. What you created for me was absolutely perfection. Cannot wait to work with you again soon.
