Meet Melissa

creative director, senior graphic designer, administrative assistant, coffee Runner

Thanks for stopping by Flag 5. As you can see I am a one-staff operation. I do, however, work with a lot of others businesses to ensure each project I work on has every aspect taken care of if required. My focus is graphic design (branding, layout & promotions).

5 Facts:

  1. I received my Bachelor of Applied Design (Visual Communications) Degree in 2005. That was the year the movie Wedding Crashers came out. “Ma where’s the meatloaf” is still one of my favourite quotes to this day.

  2. I love minimalism. Although I don’t know how many household items I have I do appreciated simplicity at work and at home.

  3. I may have a slight case of OCD. I love when things line up and get a little crazy creating layouts, brands etc. as I get to use a million rulers to ensure everything is lined up nicely.

  4. I like to work when its quiet so my projects have my full attention, other times I like to listen to a good podcast and on occasion there are times when you can walk into the studio and I’ll blaring Metallica, Alabama, CCR or Adelle (to name a few).

  5. I live in the country, yet am still close enough to Starbucks to not feel like I am off the grid. I love to garden, relax with my family and camping is my favourite thing to do in the summer.

If you want to chat design, your business or a project I’d love to hear from you. You can contact me at: 403-952-5750
