Project: Great War Britain.

Book series commemorating the centenary of the First World War.  Working in partnership with major museums, libraries, archives and heritage organisations across the UK, Great War Britain books revealed individual stories and followed the idea that 'every soldier came from somewhere'.  The illustrations depict a soldier coming home.

Words from my clients: 

'Having worked with Melissa on an illustration project in the past, it was great to work with her again on an illustrated leaflet for a cosmetic product. Not only is Melissa an exceptional illustrator but she is also great on the technical design side which meant she could manage the end-to end project. She went out of her way to turn the project around quickly but also to a very high standard. I couldn’t be happier with the leaflet and would highly recommend working with Melissa on any design needs.'

Personal Projects

When I'm not working on a project I can still be found scribbling away on something.  Buildings are usually the first things to catch my eye but I love walking and being outside. Here's a selection of recent personal work.
