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

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.  

In 2017, I moved back to the Twin Cities. I started my employment as a full time Graphic Designer with the University of Minnesota (Northrop) in December. In 2019, I acted as the Interim Art Director and Senior Designer. That July I was promoted to Creative Director, where I have been employed since.
