Creative Adrenaline Q&A
Describe your creative process.
The client and I talk via phone or email, we discuss the timeline, budget goals. Having a sample visual or reference is always good for inspiration. I usually work in illustrator for graphics and then export as pdfs etc. I provide the first round with 1-3 options depending on the request and we refine from there, unless the first version is spot on!
What information do you need from a client before you can start work?
The project objective, a sample drawing or pencil sketch if needed, the full copy or copy in pieces if you need us to help with copywriting, your vector files if applicable, any photos/images for the work. Also, your website or other pieces you've used for marketing before.
What do you love most about your job?
My focus is on giving organizations access to top-level marketing expertise at affordable rates. That way, we hit the ground running without a lot of ramp-up time, and you pay for results – not my education. I also believe in universal contribution, a part of our journey on this earth is giving back and making a difference with our talents and skills. I love the adrenaline rush of a solving a creative problem for a client and seeing the results that come from nailing the project!
What inspired you to start your own business?
Since I was a young child, I was always asked to make the poster or design a cover....my very first project was designing a logo for my parents garden center in 3rd grade....so let's just say, design chose me. I worked at several agencies before taking the leap and working for myself. It's allowed me flexibility to not be bogged down to a 9-5 grind, I have time to be with my kids, freedom to travel and most of all, I get to work with amazing people every day.
Why should our clients choose you?
I'm easy to work with, fast, effective and always collaborative with my clients. Many of my clients are now great friends.
I'll let a few of my client testimonials speak for me:
MELISSA GACEK – CREATIVE DIRECTOR – REFERENCES
“After working with Melissa for coming up on 10 years, she continuously displays an uncanny ability to capture the essence of a brand, a campaign, or a
project and bring it to life. She has a brilliance in understanding what the customer wants, and then translating this into creative work that supports
the business objective. She continues to surprise and delight us with her ability to understand what we want even more clearly than we do!”

"I have worked with Melissa for 4 years and it has been such a pleasure and delight. She is extremely efficient with her work and always meets
deadlines (if not before). Melissa can take what you have in your head, artistically, for a project and bring it to life through all different mediums. She
has worked on a variety of different projects for us and she always delivers. She also works at your level. If you want to be extremely collaborative she
can be but she can also take direction really well and run with it."
Hannah Stael von Holstein, Director of Marketing and Sales | Discover Strength
“It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation letter for Melissa Gacek. I have worked with Melissa for the past four years during my
employment with ALTOUR International. Melissa is an absolute joy to work with. I often turn to her for creative ideas for marketing campaigns, logos,
website development ideas and sometimes, just advice and a good eye. Melissa has been able to take the slimmest suggestion and turn it into
something beautifully designed. We often brainstorm and she can take what we say and turn it into the exact concept we were looking for.
One of my clients continue to use Melissa’s work from logo design to website header images, poster concepts and mailings for each of their yearly sales
incentive programs. They continually challenge Melissa to be creative and think “outside the box” on ideas. Each year, she has delivered on every
concept! I love working with Melissa as she takes whatever I send her way and makes the most beautiful design in a timely manner. She is a true
partner and I would recommend her to anyone!”
Kimberly Tronzo, Senior Program Manager, ALTOUR International
I have been fortunate enough to partner with Melissa over the past several years on various marketing jobs and digital strategies. Melissa is a very
gifted designer who consistently inspires creativity with all those around her. She is always ready to collaborate with the team integrating all of the
ideas and producing amazing spot-on results. She is an extremely dedicated and passionate person who is an asset to every team she has been a part of.
