Melissa Gillis

Graphic Designer, ca. '13

Melissa knew she wanted to be a graphic designer since high school, where she taught herself Aldus Pagemaker, Freehand (now known as Adobe InDesign and Illustrator), and Photoshop 2.5 by making posters and flyers for friends’ punk rock shows. After high school, Melissa obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design from Mass College of Art.

Before joining Vital, Melissa worked as an in-house designer at a Massachusetts-based software company and as a freelance designer. Outside of work, she enjoys cooking, knitting, sewing, painting, crafts, organizing her home, and being a mom to her two kids and cat.
