Mel is a graphic designer specializing in print & digital solutions. He is the owner and Creative Director of Spek Studio based out of Dayton, Ohio. The studio provides high quality design solutions to small businesses and corporate clients.
Mel also maintains a fine arts practice where he creates “abstract typography art.” Working across various mediums, he begins all of his work through graphic design and type design. These concepts are then brought to life through printmaking techniques such as screenprinting, letterpress printing, as well as painting and sculpture.
Mel received his MFA with a concentration in graphic design from George Mason’s School of Art & Design in 2018.
