mGraphicDesign IS THE DESIGN STUDIO OF MARALEE NELSON
I’m an independent graphic designer with a simple, clean, classic style, and an obsession with excellent typography.
Good communication with you is important to me. You are kept in the loop via email throughout your project.
LEARN – I begin every project by listening and learning. By collecting information from you then doing additional research, I’m able to tailor every aspect of my process to meet your individual needs.
EXPLORE – By evaluating the collected information, I begin to organize and prioritize ideas. I focus on things that spark ideas that can be further developed creatively.
CREATE – This is where I get to take the best of my ideas, and develop them visually into multiple concepts that I can share with you. One direction will be selected for further development.
COMPLETE – With a creative direction selected, the sophisticated, yet simple designs are successfully and beautifully applied to the applications you need.

I will prepare a proposal (at no cost nor obligation to you) which includes your specific project details. With an agreement to the proposed time, budget, and project scope, you pay a down-payment, and the work on your project begins.
If necessary, adjustments can be made to project deliverables in order to try to work within a specific budget. Discuss your budgetary needs with me and I’ll give you the best options I can to begin a great working relationship (I accept Venmo and PayPal).

PRINT ISN’T DEAD
Many of the same design principles apply whether creating a logo, a brand, or designing a brochure, or a book. Because I love doing print design, and have years of experience, I deliver great results. If you like the style of work I’ve shared in my portfolio, I’m confident in my ability to create and extend your brand in a way you’ll love. I work with trusted vendors and printers who produce my designs, getting a beautiful final product into your hands.
My primary focus is print design work, but if we complete a printed project and you want to extend that branding to an online presence, I contract and collaborate with skilled programmers to get the online results you need.
