My name is Melissa. I'm a self taught graphic designer, based in the most eastern point of North America: St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. I hold both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in sociology from Memorial University of Newfoundland.
Having worked with clients in a variety of sectors, I have experience designing collateral for both digital and physical media. After freelancing throughout both of my university degrees, I launched Sunflower Design Co. in 2022 to reach new clients and broaden my horizons.
My goal is to create aesthetically pleasing visuals that are fresh, fun, and modern, all while increasing brand awareness.
I've been a creative person for as long as I can remember. I used a computer for the first time when I was 3, and haven't been able to detach from my laptop since!
As a student, I worked in many creative areas within varying departments at my university. I have experience with branding, social media, graphic design, content creation, photography, and more.
Having an unconventional background while working in marketing allows me to better understand the social contexts at play, and why people do what they do. An in-depth knowledge of Sociology and Psychology is useful when analyzing what appeals to customers and why they make particular choices. It also helps me create collateral that appeals to large audiences with inclusion in mind.
Is there something I can help with?
