How we began

Squash Banana was founded and is headed by Melissa Bakth.



As a graduate of Chelsea College of Art & Design and Central Saint Martins, her final year at University garnered high commendation from D&AD (which celebrates brilliance in commercial creativity) for her MTV campaign and saw her working with Channel 4, Toyota and Grafik Magazine. 

This secured her first job designing for corporate clients Merrill Lynch and Harley Street Dental Studio. This was followed by design and project management of music packaging for EMI, Warner, Decca, Universal and Sony Music. Since then, her talent and personable manner has formed a cornerstone of her approach.

Who we are

A team of creative minds working with one goal: to achieve your goal.



We design a dedicated team to suit the specific requirements of your project. Whatever the brief, whatever the budget, we work with you every step of the way to optimise your vision as wonderfully as possible, and this resonates clearly in the testimonials of an ever-growing client base.

We employ the market's best freelance designers, artists, and print and web experts which enables us to offer genuinely tailored services, be they branding, marketing, digital or private commissions. With this nexus of craftspeople composing our personnel, no challenge is daunting.

What we can bring

Representing your company with originality and personality. 



Our clients are more than just one-time customers. Our enduring relationships are forged on trust, reliability and assurance. We are rigorous with research and engage briefs with energy and inspiration.

Being a concept-driven company is at the heart of what we are and how we operate. Every project we have delivered displays a new side to Squash Banana because it is a unique reflection of our client. Ranging from playful websites to corporate brochures, our work demonstrates a great versatility with an inherent grasp of clear design. We are passionate about what we do; we take our work home with us; we wake up with it in our heads. 

Where we are headed

The future is bright... and very well-designed.



As an emerging star in our industry, we have been taking on an increasing array of dynamic and challenging projects, particularly in the last year. This is positioning us at the vanguard of our industry - a reputation that we work fiercely to maintain. Being pushed to break new ground has ensured that we remain sharp.

Squash Banana is here to offer you a unique design experience. If there is something new and untested that you want to try, we want to be the first to do it for you. Our service is bespoke and we simply don't let go until we know that you are ecstatic with your results. We are proud of this work ethic: it truly sets us apart.
