Melissa is on the road to a successful career in Sault Ste. Marie, where she will be putting her talent to work as a part of the creative team at a data-driven digital agency.
I have always loved being creative and making art, and Graphic Design - Digital Media was a perfect fit. I enjoy creating layouts, posters, illustrations, logos and photography. My experience at Sault College has been amazing with helpful and passionate teachers which motivated me to work harder. I'm most excited to bring life to others' ideas and creativity as I begin my career in graphic design.
I always liked creating art. I wanted to gain more skills in graphic design, so the high student satisfaction score at Sault College helped me choose this Graphic Design - Digital Media program. I was surprised with the many specializations of graphic design and love working with patterns, 3D models, and illustrations. My style is based on high attention to detail and pop colour illustrations (WPAP).
I taught myself how to draw and paint from an early age and the return to postsecondary school to follow my passion with a Fine Arts degree helped then lead me to Graphic Design - Digital Media at Sault College. I love creating illustrations, both digitally and with traditional media, and being creative as a career excites me and makes me happy.
Each year, the graduating students from the Graphic Design - Digital Media program put on a Grad Exhibit before the end of the year - to show off their hard work and amazing skills to friends, family, staff, students, employers, and the community. Check out some of the creative work from this year's graduating class!
