Brand Design / Founder of Obstacle Illusion
Melissa Ching. Where can we start? Hawaii to Las Vegas? We’ve known & have partnered with Obstacle Illusion for the last decade [from the Bay Area to Las Vegas] . At the time, the name made sense. It was also when She was dealing with quite possibly, the biggest obstacle in her life... she was working on coming out to her parents.
Melissa wanted too start her own clothing brand because she loved graphic design, and she wanted to go to college for it. Although, she did feel the pressure from her family to do something else with her life, Her mom, being a nurse, felt that it was also the dream job for Melissa. She felt that design could definitely be a hobby, but not a full-time opportunity. Melissa then ended up graduating from the University of Nevada, in Las Vegas with a bachelor's in Hospitality Management! But even so, she couldn't deny that her heart was inspired to CREATE. While exemplifying her ability through her craft & thinking of creating a space where people can relate through branding, the business aspect (at first light) was hard. But giving her a sense of purpose, and the buildup of experience made it all worth it. When she realized this, it was then that she decided to start her own clothing business. She called it "Obstacle.” meaning : No obstacle is too difficult to overcome.
