are you in the right place?

Let's see here... are you looking for someone to design a book for you and have no idea what steps to take? Are you a member of a team who needs help building collateral material based on your brand?

MELODEE DILL STEPHENS | DESIGNER

Experienced. Versatile. Detail oriented.

Melodee’s love of design and print started at 15 East Lancaster Avenue: her father’s printing shop. (Get it? 15 East!) She watched him form meaningful relationships with his customers and to serve them well with creativity, integrity, and insight. She loved everything about it. So much so that she went on to study graphc design. 25 years later, she’s still learning and studying, pouring over the kern in every line and completing perfect files for production. She loves how design marries precision and art. Her favorite projects are ones where she gets to be part of a collaborative team, and if it involves a complicated book project, all the better.

She loves to hike, read, cook, and entertain her friends and family at her home in Elverson, PA. She lives with her husband Mark and two (very adorable) dogs.

JACOB STEPHENS | WEB DESIGNER AND DEVELOPER

Learner. Strategic. Creative.

Part web developer, part project manager, wholly nerd. Jacob’s role at 15 East is technical: the man is all about data and detail. He takes beautiful design and makes it live and breathe on the web. He keeps large projects moving through our design process.

Unsurprisingly, Jacob uses his technical mind in the off hours. He is fond of strategic board games and would be glad for you to join him in a game of Tigris & Euphrates. He lives in Lancaster, PA with his wife Kendel Lyn. Don’t be surprised if he comes to a meeting with three game options.

expertise in partnerships

The 15 East team doesn’t begin and end with Melodee and Jacob. It’s decades of partnerships we’ve built with local printers and vendors to make our process both resourceful and seamless. We pride ourselves in our relationships and we love to share them with our clients.
