Welcome! My name is Melinda Thome and I own and manage Vibrant Marketing & Design. I have been in business since 2008. I started out as a marketing consultant for local small business, using the skills I learned at Microsoft designing newsletters and managing marketing campaigns. At the time I only designed websites and e-newsletters using html/css. Over the next few years I taught myself how to design using content management systems like WordPress, in addition to designing without a CMS. I have also designed using common website software like Squarespace, Wix and GoDaddy website builders.
Over the last 10+ years I have discovered that I have a passion not only for designing websites, logos, and other marketing materials for clients, but I also really enjoy meeting and getting to know small and medium size business owners and managers. I am a people-person through and through! I enjoy sitting down for coffee and discussing where your business started, how it’s evolved, and what your marketing needs are.
I live in Woodinville with my husband and 3 sons. I have a MBA from Northwest University (2007) – my master’s thesis covered women in the workplace. I also enjoy playing the keyboard and helping lead worship at church, volunteering at my kids’ school, and date nights with my husband!
