In the screen version of Melissa’s life, she would pick Kristen Wiig to play the role of the quirky art director surviving the madness of the midwest. To prepare for the role, Melissa recommends that Wiig sample local beers, attend some yoga classes, and learn to Dougie. “It’s a good career move for her, because she can bring to life the updated Mad Men the world really needs to see,” says Melissa.
A current advisory board member and past president of AIGA Indianapolis, Melissa is passionate about providing resources and programming to help local designers thrive. Melissa began her career as a designer with RATIO Architects after receiving a visual communications degree from Ball State University.
