About Us

We love meeting new people and discovering brands

Meet the Nelon Crew

We are a whacky bunch of people, to say the least. Our brilliant graphic designers are allergic to Microsoft Word and Excel, while others are dumbfounded by Adobe Illustrator. We couldn’t be more different…except when it comes to brand storytelling – that’s our collective happy place.

Each of us brings unique personality traits and skills to the table, and together, we unify them to ensure our clients discover their true brand potential.

So, tell us your story. We’re listening.
