For the love of good design.

Melissa Nelson Greenberg, known to many as Melisse, is an award winning art director, designer, and fine artist. She has a passion for what is simple yet complex: GOOD DESIGN. This applies from the smallest detail to the bird's eye view. Melisse believes each part of the process from concept to finish should be executed with joy and precision. When form meets function, it seems like magic. However, it is simply good design. 

With over 17 years of professional design experience in NYC, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area, growing up in a musical world, and raising two young children — Melisse has discovered happiness through finding, creating, and perpetuating the little things in life that make the world a better place to live in. Joy by design. 

Currently, Melisse is the art director for Cameron Kids, which you can learn more about here. She has also just completed writing her first children's book called "Oh, Bear" slated to publish in the Spring of 2019.
