About Me

Hello! My name is Melissa Kacar and I am a graphic designer, writer and photographer from Pennsylvania. I have been posting regularly on my blog since July of 2017 and have since written over 100 articles sharing my love for topics such as music, beauty, and fashion. My original product and concert photography is also featured throughout each post. In the past 5 years I have been able to connect with thousands of people from around the world through our shared love of these topics.

In 2022, I received an Associate's Degree in Communication Design (New Media) from Northampton Community College and in 2020 I also received an Associate's Degree in Journalism, Media and Professional Writing. My graphic design and writing go hand-in-hand and each passion of mine benefits from the other, particularly when it comes to my love for editorial design. I have always had a love for all things creative and art-related, but I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer since I was about 11 years old when I started playing around with different editing apps on my phone seeing what designs I could create with my photography. 

Some of my strengths include editorial design, as well as designs used on promotional items such as posters, merchandise, etc. in both print and digital formats. An aspiration of mine is to work in the music industry creating promotional designs for artists. I have grown up being such a big fan of so many musicians and have been a regular consumer of different forms of media surrounding music ever since I was very young. Over the years, I have grown to have a broad understanding of how important design in the music industry is on a first-hand consumer basis. When it comes to my viewpoint as a designer, I can quickly see what design aesthetics work and which don’t work for that particular artist and their targeted fan base. That perspective of being a fan and having that personal level of connection to the work will help me immensely when it comes to creating designs to coincide with an artist’s music and vision.

In my art, I find myself often mixing current digital design trends with the principals of contemporary pop artists. I am greatly inspired by pop culture, music and fashion – all of which are recurring themes in my work. My style is simple, colorful, and often incorporating high contrasting black and white elements. I have experience with using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects and more. I am very hard-working and able to quickly adapt to new programs and design styles. 

Thank you for taking the time to check out my website, your support is so appreciated! 

-Melissa
