Meesh Merlin

Design. Art. Branding. Illustration. Print. 

I run a micro Risograph print studio, printing posters, flyers, and other odds-and-ends for local makers. During my free time, I like to experiment with this printing process by making my own work. I started designing these sequential patterns as an outlet for topics I tend to over-think.
These prints are available for purchase at Odd Ones Press.


Double Dealer is a subterranean cocktail bar, hidden beneath New Orleans’ historic Orpheum Theater. The interiors are filled with theatrical misdirection and cinematic delights that unfold as guests move throughout the space. Being one of of the rare underground establishments in New Orleans, we created a visual identity that plays heavily in themes of mythology, mystery, and surprise. As a big ol’ nerd of symbolism and storytelling, this remains my favorite identity project to-date. Designed at The Made Shop.

Live Ayurveda is a wellness practice offered by Kasey Hall-Murphy. She provides guidance on incorporating Ayurvedic healing into daily life, with a focus on accepting the light and dark aspects of our Self. We created a visual identity packed with symbolism that carries this balance, using a blend of light and dark brand elements. Designed at The Made Shop.

Redline Contemporary Art Center hosted its 10th Annual Epic Gala, a huge party and fundraiser that celebrates this amazing space for Denver artists. I was so lucky to design the invite. I planned out this double gatefold, amplifying the name with nothing but... red lines.
