About


Photo by Khalil Kaba
Hello! My name is Mel Isidor. I am a designer, urban planner, and mixed-media artist based in Boston, MA. With a background bridging multiple disciplines, my work is grounded in exploring the intersectional complexities of cities, from physical materiality to the social dynamics of space and place. Currently I am pursuing my master of city planning degree at MIT, where I am focusing on design-based solutions for equitable development. My passions lie in work that bridges multiple mediums and methodologies—including photography, ethnographic research, graphic design, web design, mapping, and illustration.
