M E L I S S A + T A S H I R O


I am currently the lead designer for the Store Design and Visual Merchandising Design Team for Shiseido Fragrances. I support Hermes Parfums, Dolce and Gabbana, Issey Miyake, Narciso Rodriguez, Salvatore Ferragamo with their in-store presence. I work in conjunction with the HQ and Marketing teams to brainstorm on how to best highlight our new and exciting products.

I graduated from the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA) with a BFA in Industrial Design. During my four years I also had the privilege of studying at Central Saint Martins (London, England) and Nagoya Art & Design (Nagoya, Japan). I absolutely loved being able to see design from a different perspective while being embraced in the culture itself.

I am always looking to collaborate with great designers and artists who share the same passions that I do so if you like what you see, please drop me a line!
