Jodi Melfi Design

Jodi Melfi Design Branding and Graphic Design, Freelance Consultant
Jodi Melfi has spent nearly twenty-five years catalyzing ideas in design, marketing and business. "Doing branding and design is about the best job I can imagine. I thoroughly enjoy helping my clients find their story and understand their goals, doing research, then creating interesting solutions. I sometimes have a hard time stopping at the end of the day. I do full service identity design, logo design, image branding, collateral print materials, signage, environmental graphics."

"Doing graphic design is about the best job I can imagine. I so thoroughly enjoy collecting my clients' ideas, understanding their goals, doing research, then creating interesting designs that work for them - it's like solving a big visual puzzle. I sometimes have a hard time stopping at the end of the day. I do full service identity design, logo design, image branding, collateral print materials, signage, environmental graphics." Raised in a tight-knit entrepreneurial family of makers, tinkers and musicians, Jodi attended art school in Europe and then graduated with honors from Columbus College of Art and Design in 1994. Jodi’s affinity to giving back to community and fostering startup projects, lead her to become part of the young marketing and design professionals who were instrumental in the birth of the arts scene which rejuvenated Columbus’ Short North District. With nearly twenty-five years experience with top national retail, design and marketing agencies, Jodi played a key role in pioneering international online fine art sales, as founder and part-owner, acting as head of marketing, at http://absolutearts.com - provider of marketing tools for artists and collectors. Jodi took the business from startup to profitable with art sales and commissions for a range of clients from Oprah to Axel Rose to numerous international C-level collectors. The business earned recognition by ArtNews as one of the world’s top new arts businesses in 2004. Following a passion for mentoring Jodi has lectured in design and marketing at CCAD, published numerous articles on small business ownership and development, as well as taken on leadership roles with business and arts organizations. In 2010, after selling her interests in absolutearts.com, Jodi shifted her focus to JodiMelfiDesign where she provides ground floor branding and marketing development for early stage entrepreneurs. Expanding her dedication to incubating ideas, she cofounded the coworking space creativeCOOP in 2016. Jodi lives at Orchard House, a boutique country inn, outside of Granville, Ohio with her husband, Dean, who is owner/innkeeper, and their two teen daughters.

Mission: My goal is to create quality graphic design solutions that work cohesivley to support a marketing strategy.

It’s the details that pull an entire project together...enforcing a look, the brand. And pain-in-the-rear things like painting the 80 foot trusses before they get installed in the pavilion will make this project totally unique for @orchardhousegranville

Have you ever forgotten how much you love to do something? Then as you’re doing it again you have a revelation that you should be doing more of this, more often - creating BIG, with your hands, outside, in the morning. In my element with this project!!!

If any of you knew my dad, you know how proud he’d have been of me for having the confidence and ability to tackle this...something I’ve wanted to do for years. The container project is coming along! Ready to paint in the next few days.

The container will be available for catering and bar service during events and weddings at @orchardhousegranville as part of the larger pavilion that is being built.

This week I'm booking an overnight for the two of us in the Columbus Area. It's been a tough Spring, and we need to reconnect...OUTSIDE of our house. Probably A LOT of couples are feeling the same way.

So Get Away, Stay Local! Here at Orchard House, we'll include a wine and cheese tasting AND full, fresh, wholesome, gourmet breakfast! Sunday-Thursday availability.

Our continued goal is low contact and privacy. Book a room in main manor, the carriage house or glamping AND have a private breakfast in the courtyard, in the boxwoods or in a nook in the manor.

Because it’s tough being a dog...named Shade.

We’re so happy to have her in our family. Her previous owner’s ex reached out to us. Shade is her given name. She was surrendered because her owner was only allowed one dog at his new apartment. She was well loved and well taken care of. Thanks for allowing us to be Shade’s new family. She is truly a sweetheart. @ Orchard House, Granville, Ohio

With my #1 client, Orchard House, Granville, Ohio we've had to be agile and creative to respond to what could have been a disastrous wedding season...BUT we saw a need, connected with other terrific businesses in the wedding industry, and figured out how to make it work - especially our couples. Elopement Packages for TWO!

We’ve had several couples request elopements…And we can’t say no to love!

Teaming up with Run to an Elopement, wedding officiants, @runtoanelopement , we’re hosting overnight packages for couples!

JUST FOR TWO.
Come out the country. Exchange your vows in the pine forest. Enjoy a toast. Order-in dinner. Have the manor and grounds all to yourselves for the night. In the morning relax with a delicious farm and locally sourced breakfast.

See link in bio for more info or to book your date now thru the end of June 2020.

We're all so attached to our phones right now. My clients are getting HUGE results with email campaigns. This one for the Orchard House had a record 47% open rate and 18% click thru, with the website having over a 500% increase in direct traffic as a result. With a rather limited budget, email is a very effective way to reach out to folks.
.
Design is not just about making pretty things - its about creating solutions that work for clients and are effective for their goals.

I've been working with Jim Bidigare @jimbiddy at Coldwell Banker King Thompson for years BUT this current issue marks 3 years of incredible newsletters! It is my pleasure to create the layout and design for Jim's statistics and insightful information each month.

And by the way - with interest rates at an all time low, the market is holding it's own!

In the past weeks a few of my clients had to take drastic measures, including putting on hold regular monthly projects. It's effected my small business and caused me to get more creative!

"Branding is the best. Helping clients find their story, researching, creating interesting solutions. Sometimes it’s hard to stop. I do full service identity design, logo design, image branding, collateral print materials, signage, environmental graphics."
