Lisa and her husband are empty nesters, with two spoiled dogs, two grown “kids”, and three adorable granddaughters. If she’s not playing with the grandkids, she can usually be found visiting Virginia wineries, taking pictures, reading, and spending way too much money on craft projects.
Pat lived in France for two years, where she certified (while designing for the French Naval Academy Publication Department) that life is great and 357 cheeses make it even better. When not sampling cheese, you may find Pat fishing. Did you know that fishing builds patience, which is a highly respected virtue in graphic design?
Being a Hawaii native has given Mel experience interacting and communicating with people from many walks of life. In that spirit, Mel is a champion multitasker, which aids in completing communications and graphic design projects in a timely manner. She has an A.S. in Graphic Communications from the University of Hawaii.
Melissa enjoys playing hockey as well as attending comic conventions in costume with her husband.

“We are so appreciative of the graphics department for all their help re-designing our logo. They were very easy to work with and helped us every step of the way. Their response time was quick and the feedback they provided was instrumental in creating our new logo. Without their guidance, our new logo would not be as catchy and appealing as it is. Thank you OMG graphics!”
