the studio

Little Orange Studio is a small design studio located in Raleigh, North Carolina (originally based in Baltimore, Maryland). We specialize in crafting meaningful brands and websites that stand out. We believe that your brand should reflect your story and that storytelling goes well beyond your logo mark. Let’s work together to create a brand that will attract your dream customers and clients!

OWNER & designer

meet melanie

I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design; but for as long as I can remember I’ve been obsessed with all things visual. I find inspiration in everything. Growing up, my bedroom walls were covered in letterforms and magazine layouts. Imagine Pinterest wallpaper.

When I am not designing, you can find me spending time outdoors with my dogs, trying out a new recipe, or watching The Office (again) with my husband.

what’s with the name?

If you’re wondering if our studio is orange— you’re close. Murphy is my little orange coworker. Although most days, he sleeps on the job, he is always around the studio. He is my daily dose of inspiration, the most loyal companion, and an all around good boy.

meet hopper

Our most recent (not so orange) coworker. Any Stranger Things fans? The onboarding process was a little slow for this one as he too, spends most of his days sleeping on the job. A bold personality and a strong 75 pounds, Hopper is showing lots of good boy potential.
