My name is Melissa. You can call me Mel.
I wear a few different hats: designer, photographer, and sometimes even writer.
As a graduate of Langara’s Publishing program, I am proficient in InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Acrobat, and have experience in writing, copy editing, advertising, media production, and videography. I also have web skills, such as HTML and CSS coding, WordPress, and SquareSpace, and I am experienced with MailChimp, Acuity, Facebook, and Instagram. You can watch me talk a little bit about it here.
Post-graduation, I began working at Clevers Media as a Marketing Assistant, which involved helping with web updates, newsletters, ad trafficking, event management, and more. The company split into two business in January 2020: Bright Communications and Trevor Battye Ad Sales, and I continue to work for both of them.
I started working as a freelance designer in the fall of 2019, and by August 2020 I was ready to start working with small business more and started my own company, Nettle Creative.
I also work as a writer for an up and coming blog, Millennial Things.
