Melanie Daveid


My work lives in a digital environment and is nurtured by a love for story-telling and modern technologies.


By combining Design & Tech & Arts I create interactive experiences that solve specific challenges or put a smile on people's faces.


I draw my inspiration from the madness of daily life, contemporary topics and everlasting love for nature, sports and the great outdoors.

Design is a Journey

One that took me from learning versatile skills, tools and principles to adapting processes and routines –  just to eventually break with all of them to reinvent myself as a creative and acknowledge that design is only one part of the ensemble. 

Design is a collaborative approach from the ideation process to its creation, up to the “all-or-nothing” moment when an audience finally engages with an interface, prototype, visual, sound or artwork – and hopefully feels something I can observe and extract feedback from. 


To design means striving for this tingling feeling that vaults me out of my comfort zone, and makes me explore new disciplines and techniques. It’s the inner beat that keeps flowing even when inspiration is low – it only needs the right spark to light up again. 


Being a designer means growing with every gained perspective and all the challenges that come with it – an endless adventure.
