About Melissa

I am a curious and empathetic person who has been involved in creativity for over 20 years. I am passionate about art, design, books and photography. I love images and the visual arts. Good ideas are often found in the most unexpected places and that's why I love to travel.

I believe in respecting others, I like to work in a team, do style research and I am passionate about new challenges.
I deal with editorial illustration, graphics (coordinated images for companies, logos, catalogs, packaging) and fashion and technological accessories design.

In 2009 I created the BonbonsLab brand, because in addition to digital graphics I also like to “get my hands dirty”! I recover vintage objects and create original furnishing accessories, which I recycle and cover in fabric and paper with tailored care. I believe in recycling for a cleaner world with less waste.
