Now located in Carlsbad, California, Superhero Design was born in Austin, Texas and started in 2014. I specialize in branding and graphic design and work with companies of all sizes including entrepreneurs, startups, established companies and I do white label design.

Meet Melissa

With over a decade of experience, Melissa incorporates a broad spectrum of design with a national influence.  Melissa embodies the soul of a seasoned traveler (having lived in Austin, Southern California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii & Colorado) with a passion for design and a spontaneous flair. In her spare time, she practices yoga, enjoys hiking, camping and spends time with her rescue Terrier mix, Oscar. As founder of Superhero Design and a freelance graphic designer, she has created successful brands and campaigns for a diverse clientele.

Melissa has the ability to take an idea and turn into a visual communication that speaks to a wide target market. Almost any designer can make something look pretty – it’s the “why” behind the design that makes a brand successful. Her goal is to create memorable brands that last with the highest level of design available.

My clients say…




Kelly Barba

“From day one, Melissa L has been an integral part of our team. Her help has run the gamut from advice on the nuts and bolts of running a small business to creating a brand that has transcended us from just a small studio to our vision of national fitness brand. Responsive. Collaborative. Creative. Brilliant.” – Kelly Barba, Intermix Fit

Rudy Poe

“I have been working with Redneck Superhero on the JustFoodForDogs.com website for 4 or so years now. We just finished our third major upgrade. The new site looks great, works even better and the transition went very smoothly. Melissa is a true pro and I’m very happy to have her on the team. I recommend her without reservation and with great enthusiasm! Thanks Melissa! You Rock.” – Rudy Poe, Just Food For Dogs


Shelly Langley

“I hired Melissa/RNSH to update my website, which was 10 years old.  As part of that project, I had a database that had to be essentially reinvented on a different platform along with all of the website pages that the public would see.  Melissa did a fantastic job.  She talked with me initially to learn about what I wanted, and then set up a timeline and plan that she held to throughout the entire process.  She was warm, engaging and responsive to literally every request and issue that arose.  The website ended up looking fantastic, and had a lot of new and innovative pieces to it that I really love.  The database she created meets all of my needs and more, and she was able to bring all of my old data over to the new platform which was invaluable to me.  Melissa made it all feel easy.  Her easy-to-work-with personality coupled with her calm confidence is a great combination. I would recommend Melissa to anyone. ”  – Shelly Langley, Langley Recruiting, LLC
