A little insight into our philosophy, work quality and personality.

Have a look around. If you’d like to know more, we’re on the other end of the phone waiting to help you create amazing things.

They call us Hello Mellow. Quite Rightly.

Mellow is the state we all want to achieve: calm, collected, experienced and feeling like the MacDaddy of our domain. Your clients want to see this too. They want to know who you are and what you do without having to work for it.

That’s where we help. We’ll take a human-centred approach to get your story straight, your brand/s working together and cover all bases when it comes to getting your message out there. Hello Mellow is the starting point of a newer, better version of your business.


Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.

A pandemic is a good way of reassessing how you want to work. We’re inspired by clients that make life happier, healthier and safer and look for theses aspects in all that we do. It represents what’s important to our team, how we run our studio and the clients we choose to work with.

We believe in spreading this message and giving back to the community. Importantly, we want to encourage and empower others to do the same.

That’s why every quarter we donate to a charity or local community group of your choice AND you don’t have to be a client to get involved. Click the link below to find out more.

I want to do good

Not quite the New Kids on the Block.

Since 2007 we've been known as Jalapeno Creative, so it’s important to acknowledge our roots and the story behind the move to a Mellow life.

As our business developed and the world changed, it was time for our brand to evolve to something that better reflected our outlook on business and life. Thus Hello Mellow was born, and we began splitting our time between the Big Smoke and the Coast, enabling us to bring a dose of Mellow to clients in Geelong, Bellarine & the Surf Coast, as well as Melbourne.

Along with the many other industries we work on, we’ve honed a particular interest in employee engagement, become design specialists in the property market and found joy in the world of packaging. We’ve harnessed the power of positive psychology in our campaigns and witnessed amazing results for our clients. In all industries, we look for the ‘good’ that comes from the products and services we choose to work with - whether that be a smarter, greener way to produce something or a message that saves a life on a construction site.

Chat with us today to find out how we can help you.

Our Hello Mellow team undertook interviews and attended workshops to help us better understand and provided data that was used to inform the creation of a systems map that was very successful.

It was an agile process and there was a respectful understanding that the project had to be delivered on time and within budget, with public money provided via a government grant. The project required extensive user engagement with complex stakeholders. This required flexibility and understanding for reshaping the design of the platform. When time pressures presented due to changing requirements, the design and development team responded with grace and commitment.

The design process was made easy by the professional approach and experience of Hello Mellow in being able to produce what we were thinking almost effortlessly. Constant contact and the fast pace made the process fun and exciting and Ben and his team were sure to exceed expectations at every opportunity.

Loved working with the team at Hello Mellow to achieve such a strong new look and can’t wait to launch the new website very soon!

The team at Hello Mellow delivered a senior executive careers and jobs platform on time and within budget, respecting the constraints of government grant funding. They were agile and accommodating to the changing needs of the various stakeholder groups during the alpha and beta phases. An exceptional work ethic in a boutique firm with great capacity to be responsive to evolving needs of a multi-channel, multi-product business.

Forget the hard sell. Start by saying ‘hello’.

We know that good business acknowledges the human side before the transaction. We’ll take the time to get to know you and your business so that your audience find the value in the message they are seeing, hearing or holding to boost engagement. The language we use, the images we see, the way information is accessed should be tailored to your audience. It should sing them a favourite song that is comforting, familiar and relatable.

Say Hello

Don’t stop here. There’s more to see!
