When I first became owner of Melange about a year and a half ago I decided to give our logo an update. There has always been a girl and a dog and there probably always will be, but for me she had to come to life. With the help of my brother in-law (who is an awesome graphic designer, just check him out at Studioem.com) we set out on doing just that. I knew in my mind what I wanted her to look like, what I wanted her to portray. Of course explaining my vision was a different story.
Here is what I told him… I want our logo to give the customer an instant feel for our shop. That image is a vintage inspired woman, she is a timeless beauty who can be found shopping at perhaps a French flea market or a vintage boutique looking for a one of a kind treasure that is just like her.
Well, he got it, and Mia of Melange was born, along with her adorable dog GiGi. She is that every day, totally modern, yet timelessly vintage, women that is in all of us. She is a combination of the past and the present. So, for me, every time a customer comes in the shop and smiles because they see an item their grandmother once had a little bit of Mia comes to life.
You can be sure to find a bit of her in all of our future blog posts. We have big plans for Mia so stay tuned!
