“After working with Melissa for coming up on 10 years, she continuously displays an uncanny ability to capture the essence of a brand, a campaign, or a project and bring it to life. She has a brilliance in understanding what the customer wants, and then translating this into creative work that supports the business objective.

Luke CarlsonCEO, Discover Strength

“I have worked with Melissa for 4 years and it has been such a pleasure and delight. She is extremely efficient with her work and always meets deadlines (if not before). Melissa can take what you have in your head, artistically, for a project and bring it to life through all di.erent mediums. She has worked on a variety of di.erent projects for us and she always delivers. She also works at your level. If you want to be extremely collaborative she can be but she can also take direction really well and run with it.”

“It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation letter for Melissa Gacek. I have worked with Melissa for the past four years during my employment with ALTOUR International. Melissa is an absolute joy to work with. I often turn to her for creative ideas for marketing campaigns, logos, website development ideas and sometimes, just advice and a good eye. Melissa has been able to take the slimmest suggestion and turn it into something beautifully designed. We often brainstorm and she can take what we say and turn it into the exact concept we were looking for.

One of my clients continue to use Melissa’s work from logo design to website header images, poster concepts and mailings for each of their yearly sales incentive programs. They continually challenge Melissa to be creative and think “outside the box” on ideas. Each year, she has delivered on every concept! I love working with Melissa as she takes whatever I send her way and makes the most beautiful design in a timely manner. She is a true partner and I would recommend her to anyone!”

“I have been working with Melissa for several years. When I started my business I actually interviewed several graphics design people … Melissa was the only one who said “I know what you want, and I can deliver”. I was amazed then and remain amazed at her talent. You will often hear me refer to her as “my creative genius”, a title that she earns on every project. I have a need, I explain it in my engineering terms, she asks questions in design terms, gives me some choices, all of which are consistent with my brand, yet highly creative. Her work is thorough, timely, and creative, as well as being price-sensitive to my budget. Thank you, Melissa!”

Gene WoodCEO, Life’s Pure Balance
