Making a Melody is a company whose mission is to connect people, cultures, and communities through music for the flourishing of ALL humanity. On the verge of a new year and a new musical tour this company was in search of a new brand for themselves. They wanted to revamp their brand for a simpler more unified brand. I worked with the heads of making a melody to create a new brand for the company which both spoke with their audience and represented their mission. I created logos, business cards, posters, and brochures for the company
