History

Design De Amore once began as a graphic design studio in Phoenix, Arizona specializing in logos and branding. From there, we married our love for design with the thrilling world of fashion and entertainment.  

Founder Melody Sanchez began her career in graphic design working in advertising agencies, public relations, apparel, and nationally published magazines in Los Angeles and San Francisco. During this time, she learned the various sides of the fashion and design industries working for companies such as Laufer Media (Tiger Beat & BOP Magazines), Tart Collections (clothing) and Samantha Slaven Publicity. Her love for branding and photo shoot coordinating blossomed and she often styled wardrobe for look book and editorial shoots. This unique skillset paired well with the fast-paced fashion and entertainment industries and Melody soon began working on with the Ford/ Robert Black Agency as the Director of New Faces and Development. It was here she began working one-on-one with the models/ talent, coordinating various looks for model portfolios' as well as overseeing and maintaining the agency's overall brand aesthetic. 

We now work with the most notable talent in the industry ranging from photography, hair and makeup, styling, and graphic design to provide the best in brand imagery for our clients.
