Graphic Design & Illustration

Michelle Ponti

MARKETER TURNED GRAPHIC DESIGNER. After working in marketing for over 20 years, I am excited to pursue my dream of being a graphic designer. My past experience gives me a unique perspective and experience not only in art direction and graphic design, but also in SEO, brand development, digital marketing, and managing deliverables across multiple platforms. Developing creative solutions that have an impact and drive results is my passion.

Ashes to Ashes

Did you know that 88% of forest fires are caused by humans? A massive fire that can destroy homes and families can be started with one carelessly discarded cigarette butt. The goal of this campaign is to educate people on the devastating cost that can come from being careless with cigarette butts.

Madison Public Library in Motion

The goal of this project was to animate a long piece of text for the Madison Public Library. Breaking down the logo to use for the animation gave the piece interesting movement while keeping it in line with their branding.

United We Soar

This is an amazing non-profit program that flies veterans to Washington DC to celebrate their service and allow them to see the monuments erected in their honor. For many veterans this is a very emotional journey. The concept for the website was to focus on the veterans stories, sacrifices and patriotism in order to connect with donors who support the program.

We take raw elements like light & shadow, 0’s & 1’s,
time & sound, line & color, and make them communicate.
We create, we transform.
We make people feel, learn, think, sit up, and pay attention.
We are brilliant, talented, and skilled.
We are alchemists.
