Making beautiful sense out of a complicated world since 2005.


Miel Design Studio was founded in 2005 and over the years have become experts at print, brand and identity design. (Don’t take our word for it, read what our clients have to say.)

Our motto is making beautiful sense out of a complicated world. That sounds great, but what does it mean?

It means:

  • Tackling difficult conversations head on

  • Listening more than we speak

  • Designing for those who are not always the loudest voice in the room

  • Creating from a place of consensus and understanding

  • Making dense, technical material more accessible through thoughtful design

  • Designing beautiful exhibits that are engaging and ADA compliant

  • Truly collaborating with our clients


Who We Are


Rebekah Miel,
Creative Director

Rebekah Miel is that lone pair of headlights driving in the opposite direction during a hurricane evacuation.

You’ll no longer find her sweating through a Tyvek suit in the lower 9th or eating curry in a refugee camp in Unawatuna, but that doesn’t mean she’s any less risk adverse. These days she’s balancing the death defying feat of raising twins with the act of listening hard for how to be a good citizen in her adopted hometown of Durham, NC. Her current job title is Creative Director of her own shop, Miel Design Studio where she spends most of her time trying to make beautiful sense out of a complex world. Ask her what that means, but don’t be surprised if the answer has something to do with books or school lunch.
