About Melissa Hogan

Coloured houses row on row, windy shores and cozy pubs are inspiration enough for any designer right? Nope. It’s all about the music.

Over the last ten years Melissa Hogan transformed her love of Atlantic Music into a visual feast which serves her artists well.

Based in The City of Legends, St. John’s Newfoundland, Melissa found a wealth of talent to match her desire to design for the music industry.

From website design to CD graphics Hogan is a one-shop-welcome-stop for weary minstrals. She careful executes their style into a project and the seamless transition results in a package that cuts through as loud as a ripping guitar riff.

Her clients are all well awarded and recognized in the East Coast scene; she’s a quiet project oriented gal. She gets ‘er done.

Brothers in Stereo, Barry Canning, Shanneyganock, Banshee, The 8-Track Favourites, Garrison Hill Entertainment, The Punters, The Fables, Joy Norman and more maintain long-term relationships with Melissa Hogan Designs. Why?

Every client has a custom look, there is no duplication and motifs are never overused. It’s about transference of sound to print. Of warm music to electronic media and that takes a gentle hand. Sincerity of design.

Melissa’s palette includes but is not excluded to, concert photography, album layout, and design for web and promotional materials. She hates mice and makes a mean Fishcake Dinner. She cannot however carry a tune in a boat.
