notes From Our Clients

“I have had the pleasure of working with Mel for the past two years as we were launching a new apparel company. She was a joy to work with and fit in seamlessly with our team. She not only executed everything we needed, she always took it a step further and offered suggestions and outside of the box ideas which our team really appreciated. I would highly recommend her and I know we will work together again in the future.”

Doug Lynch

CEO, Zenkai Sports

“Melanie designed my business logos for me last year after going through a few different companies. She was professional, quick in her responses and patient with my ever changing mind! I’m very picky and made her change minor details numerous times, to ultimately choose one of the first designs. I understand how frustrating it can be to deal with a client like myself so I greatly appreciated her patience, professionalism and fast responses. I highly recommend the Urban Freelancer, her costs are very fair as well.”


Owner, Botanical Cleaning Services

I acquired Melanies (The Urban Freelancer) services to work on my newly launched Shopify store. As a start-up, I did not have the time or knowledge to ‘finesse’ what I had already created.  I had also asked her to talk me through some of the aspects of Shopify so that I could maintain the products as I created them. I could not be more impressed. Melanie is efficient, cost effective and gets the job done with absolutely no fuss.  She made my life immensely easier. I have retained Melanies services and I highly recommend her and her services in a professional capacity.


Owner, The Messy Meerkat

Melanie was recommended to me a couple of years ago but it wasn’t until recently that I finally followed through and used her services to complete the setup of my Shopify store. It took her just a few hours to accomplish what would have taken me months to figure out on my own. Melanie set up many listings on my website and she was able to make suggestions on more ways to create a seamless shopping experience. As a small business owner with limited funds, I always thought that outsourcing was out of my reach. Melanie’s services are both affordable and a worthy investment.


Owner and Designer, Eleanor Marie Jewelry

“I have used Melanie and her amazing talent to build up my website and redo my labels. She’s done an amazing job, her customer service is absolutely incredible and she does everything so efficiently. I highly highly recommend Melanie to anyone, you won’t regret it.”


Owner, Love Natural

“The most important thing I can tell you is this: Melanie saved my business! After trying to work with someone for almost a year, and not getting what I was looking for, I hired Mel. Her punctuality, and professionalism is nothing short of exemplary – and even more importantly, Melanie is able to listen to a person’s vision, then offer suggestions on how to level those ideas up to a new level. I HIGHLY recommend her services to anyone who is looking to have their brand and their products stand out from the crowd.”


Owner, Soulstice Herbals

Melanie was fast, attentive, and so helpful. She answered all my questions promptly. Got my website going in a timely manner as promised. She did an amazing job creating my new shopify website. Shopify is definitely her thing!! She also made me knowledgeable of the system and platform. I could not have been happier and would recommend Melanie 100 times over. Thanks Mel!!!! 


Owner, Creationz By Bree

Mel is FANTASTIC!  Our group chat with her is actually named “Mel the Magician”.  She is our go-to for all things Shopify and graphic design.

Owner, So Luxury Inc

I have been working with Melanie for 2 years now. I had contacted her to help with my website as I had just started it up and of course it looked so boring! Melanie took it to the next level. She was easy to work with and got everything done in the turn around time she advised. I have continued to use her for projects since and I’m so happy to have her to help me through the growing pains of business. She was worth the investment to pass off things I just don’t have time to get done.


Owner, MonkeyFly Memories

We originally reached out to Melanie at The Urban Freelancer to design our business logo for us. Melanie was prompt at replying and listened to our ideas and quickly came up with our logo that we absolutely love! Since then, we’ve had her do our business cards, gift certificates, company letterhead, and several other documents for us and we couldn’t be happier. Her prices are very reasonable and that enabled a small business like ours to have a professionally designed look!  We highly recommend Melanie at The Urban Freelancer for all of your design needs!

Lindsay & Amanda

Owner, Peaches and Clean

“I have been lucky enough to work with Mel and her team on several occasions as they have helped me get several business up and running.
When designing my logos Mel always seems to get exact out what is in my brain that I can’t find a way to describe. They have built as well as maintained several websites for me as well as helped with social media, product labels, and sourcing products.
If you’re thinking of hiring Mel and her team, do it! She is amazing and I recommend her to all of my friends and fellow businesses!”
