Melinda Darbyshire


As Director and Company Secretary, Melinda is responsible for overseeing commercial and human resources at tangerine; from internal accounting to employment and careers as well as the resourcing of projects. Applying her experience in the book trade, Melinda is highly skilled in managing all elements of foreign rights and contractual subjects with clients.

Melinda has been imperative to tangerine expanding its business in the aviation sector, bringing valuable knowledge and expertise to identify new business opportunities. Melinda is excellent at communicating the significance of design, using her extensive experience of working with international clientele to effectively highlight the value of tangerine’s innovation, strategy and design capabilities. Each year, Melinda attends the Aircraft Interiors Exhibition in Hamburg with a team of designers to build new relationships, gather intelligence and access the market landscape.

Recently, Melinda has also been developing tangerine’s presence in the retail sector, managing a project to help a large American multinational grow its retail presence in Asia. Utilising her business acumen and project managerial skills, Melinda carefully monitors the allocation of resources and ensures that project teams are aligned across different continents, to ensure the goals of the client are met efficiently throughout the project.

tangerine was one of the first design agencies that Melinda represented in a PR and Marketing capacity and has since worked tirelessly to keep tangerine ever-present in the minds of businesses and the design industry as a whole.
