'Meli A Personalised Prints' first came to business in 2011 amongst the local market scene of Bairnsdale, when founder, Melissa Ananiadis, a qualified graphic designer, moved from Melbourne in search of a lifestyle change and wanting to expand her creativity.
Meli A Design (formerly Meli A Personalised Prints) is a small business based in Bairnsdale, East Gippsland, Victoria, that creates a range of personalised home decor prints, offers a full graphic design service, and more recently offers assistance in event styling and organising.
She began making personalised prints as gifts for her friends and family members who were welcoming their new bubs in to the world, buying their first homes, and celebrating marriages and engagements. She wanted something original and thoughtful to give them, that they themselves might not be able to make.
Word of mouth spread and Mel's venture quickly grew into creating custom inspirational quote prints and designs for all areas of the home, as well as offering an affordable and professional graphic design service to many small businesses.
Mel has since expanded her services (along with a slight name change) into offering assistance in styling/set up or organising entire events, big (markets like 'The Pop Up Collection) or smaller (baby showers) and is able to include her graphic design skills and balloon and fringe garlands as part of the package.Her partner Branden, is a huge support behind the scenes and you will often see his friendly face at events "Meli A" puts together..
