Hi there! I am Mélanie Johnsson, a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and letterer originally from France. I moved to the UK five years ago and now call Margate (a beautiful english seaside town) my home. I design for and collaborate with brands across different fields: luxury, travel, cosmetics, art, fashion...and I also love to work with passionate individuals. I prioritise working with eco-friendly and sustainable brands that reflect my own values.

What else? Well, I spend most of my free time painting and listening to podcasts. I am a long-time vegetarian who loves cheese, red wine, beautiful magazines, art supplies shops, exotic animals, jumping from airplanes, kite surfing, surfing, walking around lost islands and waking up early to catch a sunrise.

Need advice or just want to chat? Email me at design@melaniejohnsson.com and I’ll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible!



I have run illustration and brush lettering workshops in London and beyond. I am always looking for opportunities to share my love of colour and shape with everyone I meet, wherever I travel, so if you’re interested in hiring me to run a workshop at your workplace/cafe/house, just drop me an email and I’ll make sure to get back to you asap!
