Production designers Melisa Myers and Kyle Kannenberg are pleased to announce the opening of their new studio Myers Kannenberg. The duo met two years ago while working on a film. It was after that project that they realized it would be a long relationship. Since that meeting, the two have created many layered and detailed visuals for film, television and commercials. Given Melisa’s trained background in interior architecture and Kyle’s previous work in styling, it seemed inevitable that the two would merge and expand their work to include residential and commercial environments.
Following her graduation from the Art Institute with a degree in Interior Design and Art History, she worked as an interior designer, designing spaces for hospitality, retail and workplace environments. She specialized in architectural illustrations and mixed media work. Later, she moved to Los Angeles to continue her design education, enrolling in Woodbury University’s Interior Architecture program. After being introduced to their distinct interdisciplinary studio culture, she was offered an internship with Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale. It was there that she had the opportunity to collaborate with a talented group of graphic designers, animators and architects. Melisa has a unique eye for details and interjects a potent sense of “story & concept” into her work. She is inherently comfortable, pliable & present in the design process and is grateful for the unique project opportunities that have come her way. Today, as production designer she continues to implement her diverse skills within the film medium, continuing to work with talented and diverse individuals within the motion picture and television industry. Recently, she has been fortunate to work on several feature length and short story film projects. She looks forward to the future and new opportunities that lie ahead.
Born in Libertyville, Illinois, Kyle grew up in “Fabulous Las Vegas.” He earned an honors degree in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After graduation, Kyle’s intent was to attend medical school. Fortunately, a doctor friend of his talked him out of that idea and encouraged him to follow the arts. That advice has taken him through various careers in sculpting, photography, architecture and fashion editorial before discovering the perfect culmination of it all; production design. In his free time, Kyle enjoys building things and riding roller coasters with his nephew. He lives in Hollywood, California with his dog Stella, who always looks divine.
