We get this question all the time… what is ‘Melismatic?’

It represents multi-faceted skill and creativity. That’s the same philosophy we bring to our projects – beauty, function and meaning beyond the mundane.

Melismatic: (Greek: μέλισμα, melisma, song, air, melody; from μέλος, melos, song, melody, plural: melismata), in music, is the singing of a single syllable of text while moving between several different notes in succession. Well-used melisma is beautiful, masterful and engaging. It’s a way to communicate emotion and bring new meaning to any lyric.

Our owner and chief designer, Renee A. Simpson, has conquered morning deadlines at a daily newspaper, managed  social media accounts during emergencies and helped build trust  in local government.

Now she’s using her award-winning talent and expertise in communications to help businesses and organizations in greater New Orleans, the River Parishes area and beyond.
