My name is Melanie Johnstone- "Melon" has always been my nickname and this is my portfolio of the things I've made......
Graphical artwork and photography were my gateway to this creative industry, starting with web design as the leading avenue, upon leaving university I became a photographer and digital editor for Pro Direct, a sportswear brand in Devon, which lead me to training interns in using the Adobe Creative Suite and sparked my career as a teacher.
I taught Graphics, Video Editing and Photography for six years moving into a managerial role at a sixth form college. Finding myself at a peak in teaching with a desire to return to the creative industry and learn new skills I became PR Officer for Unique Home Stays - who are specialists in luxury accommodation across the UK, I developed a broad understanding of Marketing and Business development as well as a passion for Home Interiors and Styling.
Through this role I built a wide contact base of journalists, social influencers and bloggers with whom I continue to work alongside. In my current freelance position I am lucky enough to work alongside an eclectic client base and I am passionate about bringing style, professionalism and success to each of my client's brand visions.
