MELISSA NUGENT

Christian • mother • wife  • visual communicator • fitness fan • health nut

What can I say, I'm crazy about design. I found my calling and love every minute of every project. Design comes naturally to me and I truly believe I was meant to do this.

 

I received a BFA in Communication Design from the University of North Texas in 2000. I then spent five years as a graphic designer at a well respected agency in Dallas, TX. That experience helped me become more knowledgeable about how to design and market for many different industries. I now have over 20 years of Graphic Design experience. I work hard to help businesses succeed.

 

I am blessed to be married to Neil, an Aggie '94, and to be the mother of two sweet and beautiful girls.

I try to find time to paint in my spare time.

Over the years, I have experimented with different art mediums. I began using charcoal at a very young age to create portraits. Paint is my medium of choice these days. I also enjoy creating digital illustrations.
