What we do

We’re experts at turning big ideas into big successes.

We live to make users, product and business make sense together. An excellent user experience means thinking hard about how to make your product work so your users don’t have to.

The best businesses make inspiring products crafted with their users at the core. It’s not just about the pixel-perfect-nitty-gritty; it’s about how everything aligns so that your grand plan can come to life.

We’re just as excited about your ideas as you. Together, we’ll create an exceptional experience to delight your users, and build you a better business.

Melissa Ng
Founder & Lead Designer
Singapore

Melissa started MELEWI in 2012 when she unearthed her immense passion for design and travel. Shortly after, she discovered a similar love for the start-up world, and has since built a life and business around those three things.

She believes that life is too short to spend boxed up in just one place, and has crafted some of her best work on boats in Cambodia, at cafes in San Francisco and on the beaches of the Maldives. The world is her greatest source of inspiration.

Mary Silvestre
UI Designer
Rizal, Philippines

Mary is a designer and developer from Manila. Her love for design and code started way back when she was a freshman in high school, which was further fuelled by studying Computer Science in University, and she hasn’t looked back since.

She’s a child of pop culture, music, and the internet. When she’s not creating beautiful designs, you can find her whipping up grand meals for her family and friends, going a little crazy at a concert, or road managing international artists.

Peach Nacion
Chief Operations Officer
Quezon City, Philippines

Peach is the queen of conquering challenges without breaking a sweat. Armed with a degree in Psychology, boundless curiosity and an amazing spirit, she effortlessly balances work and life with two adorable kids.

As a mother, she knows countless tricks for keeping organised, being efficient, and getting the most out of everything you do. Her dream to experience the world drives her to work hard, so she can play even harder.

Avik Ganguli
UX Designer
Kolkata, India

Having been infatuated with design at such an early age, Avik has built an arsenal of skills in user experience and interaction design, as well as in various forms of communication media. Subsequently, he’s also knowledgeable in the entire front-end development process - from requirement gathering to mark-up which makes him a great addition to the team.

He believes that design can genuinely improve lives, but people need to choose equitable, sustainable development over shallow campaigns. He strives to help people and organizations apply design methods to research, prototype and test services, products and interfaces that constitute positive social change.

Nasos Kouroupis
Interaction Designer
Athens, Greece

Nasos is a seasoned interaction and UX designer with over a decade of experience working with clients from around the world. He considers himself a citizen of the world, but hails from Athen, Greece, where he currently spends half his time at.

He has spent a huge chunk of his life living in many different places across the globe - from Singapore to Denmark to London, and loves immersing himself in different cultures.

In his spare time, he's obsessed with cycling - spending 6 - 7 hours at a time biking through mountains (how kickass is that?!). He’s also currently writing a couple of his own books about different design methodologies, craftsmanship and philosophy.

His favorite country thus far is Japan, and hopes to live there someday.

Nicole Cord-Cruz
Project Manager
Los Angeles, California

Nicole is a social media junkie who lives on the internet. She has established a number of online spaces in which she spends most of her time on. She’s gearing up to start travelling someday, but in the meantime, she’s exploring the world from a different angle through digital screens.

Aside from attempting to fit her thoughts into 140 characters, you can find her geeking out over new music, getting lost in a book or swooning over a new shade of lipstick.

Jon Munson
Product Manager
Gloucestershire, UK

Jon learned his alphabet on an early Apple Macintosh computer, and has loved working in digital ever since.

As a digital native, Jon has worked from front end web development all the way through to product management and user experience design. He creates solutions that focus on performance, maintainability and scalability, which ultimately keeps customers happy and helps business's bottom line.

When not working online (which is very rare), he can be found hacking a Raspberry Pi, riding motorbikes around the countryside, or rocking out on his guitar.

Tiago Gerstheimer
UI Designer
Porto Alegre, Brazil

Tiago Peter who currently gets his work done listening to a large diversity of avifauna singing at his window in Brazil, really enjoys developing web & UI/UX design that speaks with the user, taking in usability precautions and other principles of navigation. He never loses sight of developing a maximized user-centered experience.

He's a digital nomad, meaning gypsy by blood and not by choice. He finds inspiration in 3 different continents where he’s had the pleasure of meeting and collaborating with many very talented people in the digital industry throughout the world.

In his spare time, Tiago is found browsing Soundcloud listening to deep house rhythms while typing away on his Filco mechanical keyboard, or weaving through traffic on the streets of Porto Alegre, Brazil on his bike.

Rikke Gantzel
UI Designer
Copenhagen, Denmark

Rikke has been working as a designer for more than 16 years and has an arsenal of skills to produce exceptional interfaces.

Her design philosophy is to always be creating. She pushes herself to create all the time in order to get better and better in her craft. She’s resourceful and always coming up with creative solutions to design problems.

When she’s not designing kickass interfaces, she’s out boxing, surfing and driving around the city with her scooter.

Possibilities are limitless.

In San Francisco, we teamed up with entrepreneurs to bring their visions to life. In Melbourne, we collaborated with innovators to disrupt and breathe new life into established industries.

We believe every brilliant idea deserves to be built - no matter the shape or size. We work with entrepreneurs all across the globe to turn their dreams into real life successes.
