Thoughtful &  Effective

Established in 2016 with a desire to cut through the corporate maze of complications and work directly with clients who understand that design matters. We work with ambitious brands who are looking to create distinction through the power of design.

 

We believe marketing work is way more than "making the logo bigger. We craft branding and design that tell your authentic story and reach audiences on a new level. Our work is thoughtful and effective.  

Melanie Layer-Gaskell is the founder and Creative Director of MLC.

She holds a BFA in Graphic Communications from Maryville University, and I have been working in the design field for over a decade. I am proficient in logo design, branding and identity, print design, web design, experiential graphic design, and typography. For the past several years, I have had the privilege to provide services for a diverse portfolio of clients, ranging from large national healthcare corporations to small start-up’s.

 

She is a proud partner, a mother to one baby boy and two rescue dogs, a Disney history nerd, and enjoys Mid-Century modern everything. 

 
 

Building a brand image

Adds Value.

When you invest in your brand, your business will grow. Your logo and branding is the message (good or bad) that you are sending to your customers. To stand out from the crowd, your brand must clearly communicate your business's unique narrative. Creative is the variable of success.

 

MLC will work with you to make sure that your branding tells your story starting with your logo and website all the way down to your business cards.

Creative is the variable of success.

I want to work with entrepreneurs.

We are a small business ourselves and we understand what it takes.  We get the struggle, the late nights, and how hard you worked to make your business a reality.  I love the chase and I know you do too. That is why we offer pricing catered to small businesses and start ups. Our small business packages are a great way for you to build your brand identity, website, or revamp your older/outdated site.
