How did you get involved in this business?
After graduating college with a degree in Mass Communication and Design, Todd began freelancing when friends and family members needed designs for their businesses. While working at different agencies, he always had a side project or two in the mix – which gave him the freedom to work with different clients in all types of industries –constantly keeping things fresh and inspirational. Todd has always been passionate about art, design and being creative in all aspects of life. Melissa has been working in the counseling and special education field for the past 10 years; growing up with entrepreneurial parents, she has always had the drive to start her own business. She started her first venture last summer, Morning Routine, featuring handmade nutritious breakfast and snack choices, check out her online store or visit her booth at the Edgewater Market & Music this summer! Melissa and Todd have always talked about starting their own design studio, and finally the timing worked out to take the leap. They are so thankful of the support from their community, family, friends and everyone who has educated and mentored them along the way. People are talking about MTN Creative and it’s all because of these relationships.
