"Melissa is truly a team player. She always listens to my hundreds of ideas, clarifies what I want my results to be, and asks me about what my goals are. That way she is sure to line up her efforts with what I want for an end result. I value her experience in social media and what she is able to do with design speaking to my customers and her wording to engage my audience...simply the best extension of my team!"

"Sometimes working with a contractor can be difficult — messy communications and poor followup or timelines can be frustrating. Working with Melissa has been stress-free and enjoyable. She delivers high-quality, on-time work by understanding our requests and using her expertise (and personality!) to meet and exceed our expectations for design projects. We're lucky to have such a talented designer on call for our projects."

"Melissa was a treat to work with! She was great at answering my questions, giving feedback and advice, and is extremely knowledgeable about social posting and how to increase interaction. I would recommend her to anyone needing some help, or a major boost, in the social media realm! Five stars!"

"We have always felt so fortunate that we found Melissa at M. Heckel Design. Every project we throw at her, from rack cards, t-shirt designs, and banners to new product logos, she always gets it right. A lot of that is because she instinctively knows what we are trying to do and say about our little company."

"Melissa has played a significant behind-the-scenes role in our marketing team. She has the ability to take a project with minimal direction and completely blow us away with her design expertise. Melissa juggles multiple projects with ease and always delivers high-quality work within the demands of our tight timelines. We are so happy she’s a part of our team!"

Jenna Schmitz, Marketing Project Manager
"Melissa was referred to me by a couple of reputable colleagues and I quickly understood why. Besides being a genuine, delightful, and fun person...her professional demeanor, trustworthiness, creativity, and attention to detail has been a pleasure to work with and she's become a valuable addition to my business."
