Open Mind Studios is a small, women-owned agency. We are a hard-working bunch that likes to get hands-on and learn as much about you and your project as we can. Our designers manage projects from start to finish; there are no intermediary account folks to communicate through. We want you to think of us as part of your team, but understand you need to get to know our team first.

Born and raised along the Mississippi River, Wisconsin native Shannon Muench (say Minnick) joined Open Mind Studios in May 2007. Along with her design, typography and problem-solving skills, Shannon brings a healthy dose of sarcasm to the office daily.
After cutting her teeth as a young designer laying out product catalogs for NASCAR, NBA, MLB and the NFL for WinCraft, Inc. in Winona, Minnesota, Shannon made the move to Sheboygan to join Open Mind Studios.
Shannon is an avid volleyball player and quilter, enjoys swimming, board games, and laughing. Her goals include learning how to kiteboard, staying active and learning more about web and UX design.
Melanie’s history with Open Mind Studios began in 2005. Her prior experience includes designing for a small firm in Chicago and a large advertising agency in Iowa. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Drake University.
"My career as a designer allows me to combine some of my greatest strengths: attentive listening, intelligent writing and creative visual communication."
Outside of the office, Melanie enjoys interests that currently include traveling, ice skating, cooking, knitting, yoga, and spending time with family and friends.
