Being the 5th most productive country in the world has had detrimental effects on US workers.
AMERICANS ARE GETTING LESS AND LESS HAPPY.
Young professionals are demonstrating higher achievement, yet more stress than ever before. They are spending more time in stressful, working spaces, and it is contributing to higher levels of burnout.
MELONA IS YOUR HAPPY PLACE.
Extend the Melona experience into the physical space as an all-inclusive resort to give young, stressed out American professionals an immersive escape in which they can feel happy again.
Melona Oasis is an isolated, all-inclusive resort located in Pima, Arizona.

As the long-time favorite in the Korean market, Melona bars are known to be a refreshing summer snack that is creamier than similar American popsicles and much lighter than a typical ice cream. Not only is the texture different from traditional American frozen treats, the shape and flavors offered by the brand are also new, particularly their iconic light green honeydew flavor.
The color scheme and geometric brand aesthetic will be utilized in the design of the brand, along with the use of doodled summer-related icons to give a youthful and fun feel to the resort
