I'm Melanie



My name is Melanie Latrelle Grandoit (pronounced Gran-dwah) and I am a Brand and Web Designer and Photographer.

I work with entrepreneurs to create personal brands, websites, and professional photos that stand out, streamline your business processes, and attract your ideal clients.

I believe we are all meant to stand out and be unique. We each have our own identity and no person or brand should look like the next.

Have you been in business for awhile or have you had a few websites in the past and felt like they didn't represent your business the way you imagine?

I understand.

I've worked with a number of clients who have been in business for 5, 10, 20+ years and their previous websites didn't do their business justice. I work with business owners to plan and strategize their brand.

I get motivated when I see people use their gifts to serve and make a difference in other people’s lives. I love working with entrepreneurs who have taken a step of faith to start their own business and use their God-given gifts to solve a problem in this world.

Together we will clearly identify your business 'why', your brand voice, brand visuals, and brand experience. Building a solid foundation for your business helps you serve your clients and customers with excellence.

Once your brand strategy is defined, we schedule your brand photoshoot at a location that aligns with your brand mood and colors. I'll know exactly what photos to take because of the vision I get from our brand strategy sessions. Professional photos that are relevant and engaging can transform a website.

Next, we take your brand elements and showcase them on your beautifully designed Showit website. We'll build a website that connects with your target audience, shows your credibility, clearly articulates your offerings and calls your website visitors to take action to do business with you.

Your new online presence will wow your audience and give you more confidence to serve them with excellence.

What It's Like To Work With Me

I consider myself a Creative Tech, which is an amazing blessing for me. I love all things art and using my creative side. I also have a logical and technical side. This allows me to design unique brands for each business owner, and also understand the technical side of website design.

I worked in corporate America for 15 years. Working for billion-dollar organizations gave me a wealth of knowledge about user experience, content writing, branding, web design, marketing, and communications, just to name a few. 

In 2019, I left corporate America to realign my life and get more vision for my future. Months later, I started helping entrepreneurs brand their business and build their online home.

My Journey

I love it when I find entrepreneurs who are using their gifts to serve the world. If you're ready to build your brand or refresh it, let's chat!

In 2019, I quit my corporate job. I knew sitting in a dark, gray cubicle was not how I was meant to spend the rest of my life. A few months later I started my design business. I have so much more joy, peace, and happiness.

I worked in corporate america for 15 years. I started as a customer service rep and climbed the ladder to become a technical instructional designer.

Our wedding day was the best! Here is a photo of us dancing our first dance as husband and wife.

In 2015, I met Ray Grandoit at church. We eventually became friends. Two years went by before I realized he would become my husband.

In 2008, I became a single mom after getting a divorce from my children's dad. My single mom season lasted 10 years.

I really like to dance.
I was honored to join Flash Mob America in 2016. We danced to a Taylor Swift song at a corporate event in Atlanta. It was probably the smallest flash mob ever as we had less than 10 people. I had a blast!

I like to be adventurous. Horseback riding, river tubing, and waterfalls are some of my favorite outdoor activities.

I love to have fun, laugh, and enjoy life. I wake up each morning expectant for all God has for me for the day.

What Others


"I couldn't focus on packaging everything. Melanie helped me to focus on what I wanted the result to look like and how it will accomplish my goal."

I was unable to find or create something that represented my passion and me.

"Melanie has provided a spotlight on my company and what I can offer to others as a marketing communications leader. My favorite part about working with her was the process and homework of really thinking about how I wanted to present my story. Thanks Melanie!"

Melanie helped me with my story that can continue to live as I grow my consultancy.

Melanie did my photoshoot and captured my light and now I use my photos on my podcast, Youtube channel, LinkedIn and all social media platforms. Melanie is super fun, relaxed, and brings joy wherever she goes. People tell me all the time, "I love your pictures."

Ray Grand
Life Coach, Speaker, Author

I needed fresh new headshots that captured my personality.

My previous website was awful. I couldn't work with it, add to it, or change things on it. Melanie answered every single question, met every one of my needs, and buoyed me up to believing that I could make this work. Every interaction with Melanie was positive. Melanie tailored my site to precisely what I needed (rather than a one-size-fits-all approach).

a big improvement over the previous one!
