Mean Creative & YOU

We’ll make a great team

You only have one first impression

…one chance to express your mission for the first time. Why do first impressions matter? Because this is when you can have a BIG impact. We strive to make your first impression one that sticks and builds loyalty and trust with every subsequent visit.

Whether you’re a small non-profit or mission-based business looking for a small conversion-focused website or a larger organization in need of something with all the bells and whistles, we will work side-by-side with you to bring your vision to life. 

We care deeply about your success and can’t wait to hear about you, your cause and your goals.

Let’s get to know each other…

Hi, I’m Mellissa

passionate about your success

I’m a marketing expert, living in the Spanish mountains. I’ve been working in brand strategy, web design and SEO for 10 amazing years.

I founded Mean Creative to help non-profits and mission-driven businesses change the world! I put you at the centre of the design process. I get to know you, your mission and your audience so we can translate your ideas and content into a design that gets results.

I’ve worked at leading digital marketing agencies in the luxury sector and thrived in the hustle and bustle of the big city but my passion is for the countryside and the stuff that really matters!

While I’m busy creating amazing online experiences for you I’ll most likely be surrounded by pine forests and olive groves in the Spanish countryside.

I work with a team of talented freelancers with technical expertise, creative flair and their own passion for marketing.

We start every project with a discovery call to make sure we know exactly what you need from us.

We get to know you, your dreams, your goals and most importantly, your audience(s).

We check in with you along the way so you have opportunities to feedback (and get excited!) about your new website, learn about the results of your campaigns, and discuss ideas.

It’s all about you.


You’ll find us in the mountains of Spain soaking up the countryside!

We work from several off-grid offices powered entirely by solar panels or in our dedicated office in a sleepy rural village.  Our windows look out onto a beautiful green valley, we can hear the water tumbling down the river and nothing but nature outside our doors.

Pictured is me with my business bestie and business strategist extraordinaire getting creative!

Creativity requires a quiet that the city can’t provide.

I love the site that Mellissa designed for me on WordPress using the Divi theme. She captured my voice and my brand perfectly and gave me a site that gives me joy every single time I look at it.

In the six weeks since the site has gone live, I’ve nearly doubled my traffic. Best of all, she was patient with me and gave me tutorial videos to help me figure out how to use a theme that was completely new to me, but that I now love.

Working with Mellissa was a treat and I’d recommend her to anyone.
