Instructor Biography

Melanie Greenwood, Graphic Designer / Founder of Vision City Art Studio

Vision City is an graphic design and illustration studio that began as doodles in Melanie Greenwood's sketchbook, while touring Europe with rock musicians in moving vehicles. As a former Model with Elmer Olsen Model Management and graphic design graduate from George Brown collage (Toronto, ON), Melanie always had a special passion for music branding and inspirational messaging. When she founded Vision City in the spring of 2009, her work consisted of promotional campaigns for bands and record labels around the world, including photography, album artwork, t-shirt design, concert posters and logo design.

After moving to California in 2011 with her musician husband Chris, (AKA "Manafest") Melanie felt compelled and inspired to find a deeper purpose for her artwork. Thus, the very first Vision City screen print collection was born on November 15, 2011, consisting of 12 black and white inspirational concepts known as the "Born For This" Collection. The collection sold successfully on a private Etsy store and was quickly picked up by FAB, which created a world wide platform for the collection. She continued to develop art print series and showcase in a variety of LA art shows including Unique LA and Renegade Craft Fair. The Vision City brand quickly became known for black and white uplifting illustrations. In the spring of 2013, Melanie had the honour of having a selection of VC art pieces screened onto canvas and added to the fall 2013 collection of the National Children's Decor Retailer, Land of Nod. Vision City was awarded "Artwork of the year" at the 2012 CMGA Music Awards for her work with "The Color" album art.

Vision City is now a tri-purpose company offering design service, art products and now online education.  Melanie continues to work within the music industry while developing the VC art collections. Her newest passion is teaching other artists to develop business practices for their design services, so they too can pursue their dreams. "Vision is not only the ability to see, but also the ability to dream".
