Hi there! My name is Melissa Sands. I'm a freelance graphic designer in Bangor, Maine. With almost 20 years of experience, I've had the pleasure of working with clients all over New England and beyond to produce high-quality, effective designs for their businesses.  From business cards and brochures to logos and project is too small or too large.

I also have a niche in menu design, after having worked with almost 400 restaurants across New England. With a thorough understanding of menu engineering, I'm able to produce a product that truly "works" for the customer to increase profit margins through strategic placement of profitable items.

I take pride in my work, focusing on the details, and work closely with customers to make sure the end product visually and effectively suits their needs.

“Working with Melissa Sands from Creative Insight has been both a pleasure and profitable. Melissa listened to our ideas and made the entire design process interesting and fun. Melissa worked with us to identify and then highlight our most profitable items on our menu. The result was a true win/win. Our customers loved the new menu’s look and ease of use and our increased profits were immediate and lasting. Over the years we have used Creative Insight time and again on several projects and have always been glad we did.”

“I have been lucky enough to utilize Melissa’s talent for three separate companies in recent years. Her work is always top notch, creative, timely and affordable. I am always amazed how she can take my vague, initial concept and turn it into reality. I have recommended Melissa and Creative Insight to others and will continue to do so without hesitation.”

“Melissa has more experience creative attractive and effective menus than any other graphic artist in Maine. And that’s only one piece of her portfolio. If you’d like to increase your traffic, promote your business, and become more profitable, give Creative Insight a call. And if you haven’t jumped into social media yet, now is the time. She can help with that, too.”
