Hi! I'm M'Elena, a Chicago-based design consultant.
I have seven years of experience contracting at agencies, start-ups, and in-house brand and marketing teams across Austin, Seattle, and Chicago. My strengths include art direction, concept development, user interface design, and visual design. 
I'm interested in projects focused on experiential design. I'm looking to join upbeat teams that offer a mix of hustle, cross-disciplinary collaboration, and mentoring opportunities. Career highlights include designing digital insurance products at Arity, concepting for Walgreens.com site redesign, art direction for T-Mobile and Microsoft, visual design and user experience at Getty Images, and user interfaces and environmental branding at Dell. 

I've got an energetic personality and enjoy spending my free time socializing. I like to participate in organized activities and leagues of all types like volunteering at non-profit design organizations, exploring new cities and the outdoors thru geocaching, and performing in karaoke competitions. If I sound like a good fit for your team, say hi at melenafranceswalker@gmail.com.
