Crafting modern & impactful websites for small businesses on the rise

Together we’ll create a custom, purpose-driven site that reflects your personality, your brand vision, and your target audience.

Because your online space should be uniquely you.

Aligned Creative

Design meets purpose

Hey, I’m Melissa – the one-woman show behind Aligned Creative, a Brooklyn-based website design & development studio specializing in clean, modern, and purposeful sites on Squarespace & WordPress.

I work with creative & service-based business owners like you to build & grow your brand, handling all the nitty gritty details so you can be free to focus on what you do and love best – your business, blog, or any other passion projects. Whether you already have a site that needs an upgrade or are starting from scratch, I’ll bring your brand vision to life (and take care of all the technical work) by creating a site that impresses, converts, and feels like you. 

The Creative Process

How it all works


It all starts with a free discovery call to discuss your needs, goals, and aesthetic. If we’re a good match, the planning process begins with a client intake form and developing mood boards, color schemes, font pairings, and layout structure.


Once we’ve nailed your design details and content structure, the magic begins. I’ll craft a custom site that includes all the backend set-up and development work. And you’ll be kept updated every step of the way through the client portal.


After your site is complete & ready for handoff, we’ll schedule a screen-sharing session where I'll take you on a complete tour of your dashboard & teach you how to maintain your new online home. And you'll receive 30 days of additional support.

I’ve been working with Abbey for over a year as she grows the Balanced Rebel beyond a blog and into a full-scale business.
