In an era of self-proclaimed gurus and aspiring entrepreneurs, allowing your work to speak for it self is becoming a lost art. In our opinion, Melody Jeha who is the creative director at Destylio is an amazing artist. We appreciated her work before we even understood what Destylio does. Once we understood the genius behind the brand, we were hooked.
“Destylio is a boutique styling studio that offers a wide range of styling services,” Melody said. “Flat lay styling has recently become one of our popular services and is mainly provided to bloggers, online businesses, and brands who are looking for customized stock photos that reflect their brand identity. These styled photos are used on their blogs, social media accounts and websites. We also provide event styling services for business events, seminars, workshops, boutique openings and other private events,” she said.
WHAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT PART ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Sometimes, a client has a certain approach or a different vision to a project than the vision I have. The most challenging part about my job is being able to find common grounds without any compromise on any level to create a successful project that exceeds a client’s expectations.
YOU ARE IN DUBAI? CAN YOU DISCUSS WHAT THAT IS LIKE? WHAT IS THE CREATIVE SCENE LIKE THERE? WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT LIVING AND WORKING THERE?
I have had the privilege to watch Dubai evolve over the years, transforming into a global city dominated by modern architecture and touristic destinations. People of diverse professions and backgrounds come from all over the world and live in this multicultural environment. Being a new- born cosmopolitan city, the amount of activity is quite high on all levels- especially in the artistic sector. Annual design fairs, competitions and international exhibitions are the highlight of Dubai’s creative scene. Dubai is full of liveliness, inspiration and opportunities, which makes it a highly competitive and highly demanding city to live and operate in.
WHAT ARE YOUR MUST HAVE ITEMS AS A BUSINESS OWNER? THESE WOULD BE THE PORTABLE ITEMS THAT YOU USE EVERY DAY. (IPAD, LAPTOP, CELL PHONE ETC)
My must have items have got to be my cell phone, camera, and planner since my entire day revolves around them. It’s all about organization and capturing the right moments at the right time.
