Hi & Welcome! I’m Mel Volkman.
Designer & Artist currently based in St. Augustine, Florida.
THE DESIGN STUDIO
I specialize in branding, print, web, and product design. With 10+ years experience in the creative industry, I have worked with a variety of clients – from small creative business owners, to high-end interior designers, fashion designers, jewelry designers, realtors, celebrities, luxury product retailers, and highly skilled photographers.
While based in the beautiful, charming little city of St. Augustine, Florida, I’m happy to have the opportunity of working with clients both local, and worldwide. I place a huge emphasis on quality design and exceptional client service, and strive to create beautiful, distinctive work. Each project, big or small, is carried out to the highest standards. My design approach unfolds a timeless aesthetic while highlighting the unique and notable qualities of each brand and personality.
THE ARTISAN SHOP
In addition to my creative lifestyle blog and design studio, I’m the creative director behind Shop Mel Volkman; an artisan studio carrying handcrafted home goods, original paintings, prints, and limited edition artwork.
“I grew up traveling and moving most of my life. Seeing so much of the world, experiencing diverse lifestyles, and overcoming an abundance of hardships really increased my appreciation for creating art. My artwork is an extension of me. An exploration of emotions and a journey into the balance of life.. A form of visual storytelling. Whether a photograph or a painting, each piece found in my shop tells a story in a way that my words cannot..” – Mel V.

THE PRINT STUDIO
Earlier this year my husband and I acquired a beautiful (and massive 2,500 lb.) Heidelberg Letterpress. In early 2018 we’re launching a modern press and printed paper goods studio, where we’ll offer a refreshing variety of modern print services, including letterpress and gold foil. I’m also launching an exclusive stationery line for the studio! We’re super excited about this venture and look forward to being your new print studio BFF! You can subscribe to my blog to stay up to date on the launch.
IN MY FREE TIME
When I’m not working on a client project or planning new content for my brand, you can find me squeezing the absolute most out of life with my husband, our two children, and two pups, painting, redecorating our home, or exploring and photographing this beautiful and mysterious world.
I’m happiest when creating, helping people, and traveling. You can follow my journey on Instagram @melvolkman.
