Isidor Studio is a creative design practice at the intersections of art, design, and urbanism.

Our design approach blends a balance of exploration and experimentation, partnered with a technical rigor to help projects be realized. Core to this process is understanding that quality design is rooted in understanding the communities and audience we are designing for. To this point, we work with partners and clients to develop design processes that involve purposeful investigation and inquiry to create representative design outcomes. We are based in Boston, MA and collaborate across borders.

Founder + Designer

Hey, I'm Mel Isidor 🙂

Mel is a designer, urban planner, and mixed-media artist based in Boston, MA. Her creative spirit stems from a fascination with the built environment—seeking to unpack how our urban fabric reflects people and culture. At large, her practice serves to leverage the power of design to advance communication, accessibility, and diverse expression across both physical and digital spaces.

Mel holds a Master's in City Planning from MIT and a B.A. in Urban Studies from Brown University (with distinction as an Engaged Scholar). She has been invited to speak on her practice through a number of talks and lectures including the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA), Yale University, Brown University, and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). Aside from her creative work, Mel finds joy in trips to the beach, sci-fi novels, and biking.
