The word mesí means thank you in Haitian Creole, and is apt for the fledgling gift design service. The partners who own Mesí are building the company as much more than creators of the typical gift basket. Instead, they plan on focusing on creative, one-of-a-kind gifts—for an upscale audience that prefers unique items and exquisite presentation. As an additional thank you, Mesí's owners donate a portion of all sales to charity work in Haiti, one of the world's poorest nations.
The Mesí identity took as its inspiration the rootsy, distressed lands of Haiti—a design that highlights human imperfection and personal character, allowing the mark its fluidity, while not overwhelming the beautiful contents of a Mesí gift package.
