About

Hello! I’m Melissa Nosal, a creative professional with experience in graphic design and illustration. I’ve made a ton of materials over the years — stickers, billboards, posters, and even apparel — mainly for educational institutions and nonprofits. Currently though, I work for a private company turning ho-hum spreadsheets and white papers into nicely branded presentations and booklets. I also freelance for an audiobook publisher, designing the covers and retail packaging for new releases.
