My name is Melissa Bartz, and I am a Graphic Designer from Saint Paul, Minnesota. I have a BFA in Graphic Design from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (2011), and an AAS Degree in Interior Design (2007). In September of 2012, I moved to New York, NY for an internship at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. 

From September 2013–June 2014, I was employed as a freelancer with the Library. In June of 2014, I was hired on full time as a Graphic Designer with NYPL servicing 88 branches and 4 research libraries across the three boroughs of New York City.  

I briefly lived in Des Moines, Iowa from May–November 2017 and worked as an Assistant Art Director at the creative agency Mittera. My main focus was on a monthly food magazine, Simply Schnucks, that I produced from conception to print. I currently live in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Thank you for stopping by! I am currently updating this website with my most recent work. If you are interested in working together, please contact me at melissamariebartz@gmail.com.
