Melissa Gelineau, Graphic and digital designer
Who is Melissa?
Melissa has a lot of drive! I grew up in the countryside with wide open spaces, where motocross and ATVs are part of everyday life! I also have a more creative and perfectionist side. I have been creating art projects from an early age. I knew very soon in life that I would be a graphic designer. I used to collect all the “Cool” and “Star système” magazines, and I was always trying to find out how I could make them more attractive.
Even today, on home alone evenings, I create fictitious mandates and make mock-ups just for fun. It shows how passionate I am about my work…ha ha!
Your daily motto:
Listen, it’s going to be simple: to live in the present moment and be happy! My daily mantra is to listen to myself, explore my desires, set goals to grow personally and professionally, and most importantly, be surrounded by positive people. I am a great believer in balance. Balance in life and in work. It makes a big difference, in my opinion.
I am so lucky because my work allows me to be happy and find this balance. And that, I think, is the most priceless thing!
I don’t have any idol in particular, but I sincerely believe that each person I meet allows me to grow. It’s important to listen and to take the criticism. You can learn so much by being open to others.
The social cause you defend?
Since I own my house, I have been thinking a lot about becoming a foster family for children and teenagers in need. It’s something that is very close to my heart. There is a critical lack of foster homes for teens. I would like to get involved in this project and be a loving family for these young people. If it can change something in their lives, it’s mission accomplished!
What do you like most about Cible?
Actually, it’s the impact that Cible creates within the community, philanthropic organizations, but also in our lives. The agency allows me to do what I love most, which is design. There’s also the fact that we help organizations to raise their positive impact on the world.
Whether it’s in digital strategies, visual identity or social brand development, we are here to help social causes and organizations grow and achieve their mission.
What would be your professional goal for this year?
In the past few years, I’ve done a lot of print. This year, I want to refine my experience in website development, and I want to master UX and UI design at my fingertips. Two very important concepts in today’s digital world.
I am very creative, but also very rational. So, that combination makes something pretty amazing!
