melissa m. torres

Hello I am Melissa Mariana Torres (mmtorres). I have been an artist all my life.
I graduated from International Fine Arts College with my Bachelors degree. I was awarded the
Best Environmental Design Trophy at the Senior Awards Ceremony. I work on a Macintosh and
have knowledge of all the latest in design software. I also have print production experience, which
ensures your projects will be setup correctly for final output production.

Besides Graphics/Illustration I also paint, draw, sketch and journal. I have over 12 years of professional
design and production experience and have been employed at major corporations throughout South
Florida. Now I manage my own design studio MMTORRES-Simplified Design.

I love designing, because it's art using the computer as my tool. Everything about
art and design are my passion. I study design constantly and have been a member of professional
organizations such as Ad2, AdFed and AIGA. I have attended/hosted many conferences and forums
to further develop my skills, talent and network. I enjoy studying designs from around the world from
places like Japan, Australia, South America and Europe.

Giving back to my community is very important to me. I have donated my talents to charitable
organizations such as the Katherine Elizabeth Foundation, Running 4 the Gold, Compassion in Action,
Kids on the Rock Children's Ministry. I volunteer bi-weekly at my church, Christ the Rock
Community Church, teaching Sunday school to 1st-3rd graders.

My latest and most amazing creation has to be my daughter, Mia Emily, she is definitely my
(and my husbands) best work :) She is a constant inspiration to me and my imagination.

I enjoy partnering with my clients to make their visions, events and businesses a success
with effective and simple visual communication pieces.
