Title

Art Director

An alumna of the University of the Arts in Calgary, Melissa was the Art Director at another agency for seven years before joining the WJ team as a graphic designer in 2020. With an atmosphere that emphasizes her professional priorities of being part of a great team culture and dynamic, she has fit right in to deliver some of the trademark, eye-catching designs we are known for.

Her specialties are in UI and UX design, and a rather impressive ability to identify any font you send her way. To stand out from other people named Melissa in the world, she has a tattoo of Leonard Nimoy’s signature on her arm, and a perfect, cavity-free dental record. She also loves to fly fish (with a hope to build her own fly rod) and does regular yoga, even though her joints remain stubbornly inflexible. And a warning – she will eat any cheese you have, so lock up the fancy stuff.
