Melissa has been designing books at Chelsea Green since 2011. Her covers and page layouts have won awards at the New England Book Show, New York Book Show, and PubWest Book Design Awards. The pica is her favorite unit of measurement—it’s beautifully divisible by 3 and 4! Previously, she worked at Quirk Books where she coordinated production and designed sales materials. She earned her MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking from The University of the Arts and her BFA in Illustration from the University of Connecticut.
