About Melissa

icatchfoxes is the creative pseudonym of me, Melissa S. Olson: Designer, Illustrator, Photographer and Writer.

I’ve been migrating my portfolio onto this new platform slowly but surely, but it’s been a long process! I’m got a little distracted by continuing to be really, really into Gilmore Girls, making a shift in my career, getting married and buying a house.

Needless to say, it’s been a while since I’ve had time to focus on building my website back up. I hope you’ll enjoy what is here until I have time to really get things updated. Let me know if there’s something missing that you’d like to see.


I graduated with honors from The University of Akron with a BFA in Graphic Design and Photography in 2010.

My day job has me working with art students, faculty and staff to help launch new creatives. I have loved this new chapter of my career and have immensely enjoyed getting to know young artists and watch their work develop during their college years.

I am currently based out of Akron, Ohio, where I live with my husband, Cory, and our two feline companions: BMO & Novella. I’m available for freelance, events & commission in all parts of the world. Questions, limericks, greetings, fugues and requests for freelance can be delivered via electronic correspondence to melissa [at] icatchfoxes.com.

For your convenience (should you prefer more traditional methods of communication) most carrier pigeons know where to find me.
