A true creative spirit with a killer eye for design, Melissa Gacek possesses the rare ability to marry raw creative talent with a high attention to detail, organization and professionalism. I had the pleasure of working with Melissa for a year, and was consistently impressed by her extensive design know-how as well as her commitment to create only the highest quality work. She is a true fount of creativity, generating design concepts with remarkable speed and lending refreshing creative insight to projects of all shapes and sizes. Although her impressive knowledge of design could be intimidating, Melissa has a fun, welcoming approach that puts clients at ease. A woman of equal parts business-savvy, drive, warmth and social ability, Melissa is a wise choice for all creative and design needs.

We have utilized Melissa's services several times and her work has been spot on each time. She took the time to understand our needs so there was not a need for a long revision process. To top it off, her professionalism and energetic personality made the whole process a joy.

Melissa has been so great to work with and considering my limited knowledge on design, she makes the process of creating our new marketing materials quick and easy! She has helped me create a number of print marketing pieces for ZapEvent and I have always been very satisfied with her work and appreciate her always positive personality!

Starting a new business can be overwhelming.  I worked with Melissa to design my logo and implement a branding concept.  With her creativity, I'd say she is definitely in the right business!  I would highly recommend her.

Melissa designed a beautiful website for my organizing business.  She was very helpful in effectively communicating and organizing all of the information that I gave her to work with for the website.  She gave me a variety of options to choose from for the design and was very patient as I weighed out all of her suggestions and expert advice.  I am very pleased with the results of her careful and meticulous eye for detail.  Her talent and skills as a designer have overflowed to help me grow my business!

In 2008 I had the pleasure of working with Melissa on a website design, speaker profile template and support certificates for my personal brand as an Olympian. Melissa was able to respond to my simple brief with precision and in a very timely manner. She provided a beautiful design solution that encapsulated all the feminine elements I wanted.  Melissa is exceptionally creative and is a delight to work with.

Our company has been working with Melissa for about the past year. In that time we’ve developed and brought online a new and updated website, created new logos and branding for our company and products, and prepared a new look for our literature and customer price lists. Melissa has been great about helping us put together outlines and letting us do much of the work in house. This has been a great cost savings and has created a true sense of ownership. We’ve been able to use Melissa and her team of experts for the pieces we needed help with. She has also brought fresh thinking and a new perspective to our marketing plans. I couldn’t be happier with the results and the significant cost savings we’ve realized by working with Melissa.

You are a very creative person who likes to think "outside the box". With that perspective, your design brings fresh and energetically creative ideas to both print and web. The files that you submit through are always prepared and prefilghted exactly as we would need them for print. The clients you send our way have always been very happy with your services and final product design. It is rare in our industry to get web, print and production expertise in a single person but you do it seamlessly. Thank you for your customer referrals and thank you for all the help and support you give to feed hungry children in Haiti.

I have used Melissa for several design projects.  She helped me shape my ideas for a new website for my Interior Design business – and it turned out just as I had hoped for – informative and beautiful!  From that design she created a brochure that continues to bring compliments, note cards, yard signage.  Melissa takes your own ideas and adds her creative magic!   I very confidently recommend Melissa to my friends and colleagues.

The printed mousepads were at the shop for my visit and they were perfect!  Thanks for your efforts and hardwork on that project.
