About by Masselyn
I have been designing for 13+ years. Paper design, digital graphics & websites are just a tip of the iceberg of what I have worked on over the years. As a designer, I bring a different approach to the table. I am crafty (having run my own Etsy handmade shops), loves drawing illustrations and is also a tech savvy programmer. My career started in technology as a Network Admin, moving to supervising tech professionals at an international law firm before I left the corporate world and branched out on my own in 2009.
Working with individuals and small businesses that want a design to express their individuality is my passion. I love dealing directly with YOU, making sure you have the best experience using my creations. It gives me the chance to offer you the attention you deserve. Think of it as having your own personal designer on hand. I also love custom work, so don’t fret if you can not find the perfect design. I used to have a shop on Etsy, Treasures in Ink, which unfortunately closed in 2015 due to an ill family member. I am thrilled to have had the chance to come back and offer the same quality of printed items here on my website. I joined Treasures in Ink with my original website/graphic design business - by Masselyn - and now offer a full service design studio to individuals & businesses around the world.
