About Minty

Hello! My name's Mel and I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Design, Interior Design. I have previously studied Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) with Honours, and have been working as a graphic designer for the last 10 years.

As much as it's absolute bliss being back at uni I'd love to get back in to the design industry as quickly as possible. I'm a very passionate and driven student, and strive to be in a role where I'm constantly learning and my design skills are challenged and extended. I believe I would be a valuable member of the team with my broad design skills and intuition, receptive personality and dedicated work ethic.

Areas of Graphic Design I specialise in:
Print Design: Typography, Brand Design, Icons, Illustration, Publication, Information Design, Environmental Graphics, Packaging and Wayfinding.
