About Prism Design Co.

Prism was founded in October of 2018 as a one-woman operation. Merry Ellen, our founder, is passionate about bringing ideas and visions to life, and helping companies to realize their potential. The team has quickly grown into a tight-knit group of creative designers and problem solvers.

Our growth plan was simple - provide a high-quality service with efficient speed and great communication. We strive to work efficiently and act with integrity in everything we do. We've completed hundreds of projects for a wide range of businesses and brands. Along the way we've won awards for our work and built strong relationships. Most importantly, after a few solid years of success, we still believe that being good people is the best marketing strategy.

Merry Ellen

The artistic and the technical have always gone hand-in-hand for me. Coming from a background as a touring musician & songwriter, I've learned a lot about creating an intentional experience for an audience, coordinating ambitious projects, making connections, and building a following. Some of my first experiences with coding were back in the MySpace days - I had a few songs recorded, so I uploaded them to the site and spent inordinate amounts of time writing code to make my page look pretty.

Fast forward 12 years, and I've had the pleasure of working with some great clients-- first freelancing, then working as staff designer/developer for a tech shop (Nate's Computer Repair), a digital marketing agency (Lift Division), and now starting my own company, Prism Design Co.

I love helping businesses create an effective brand experience and connect with their audience and the balance of the craft and technical work that goes into that.
