Hello, Michelle here 👋
It's good to see you. Please, stay a while!
I believe introductions are in order. I'll go first! Hi, I'm Michelle Lung. (Hiiiii Michelle) I am an Art Director based in Atlanta, GA. My story's a long one so let's split it up by time period.
This was period of time for growth and discovery. I spent my weekends attending a SACS CASI accredited arts academy. Here is where I was able to hone my skills in not only in fine arts but I also was able to get comfortable with the Adobe Suite. Through this opportunity I was able to win multiple awards such as:
3rd Place in state for Visual Art— "Magic of a Moment" Reflections
1st Place for Visual Art, 2nd Place for Film and 2nd place for Photography at state level— "Diversity Means..." Reflections
Finalist for Peace Pals International
1st place for the All State Art Symposium— Featured in KSU fine arts gallery & Atlanta High Museum of Art
The SCAD years. After honing my skills as a graphic designer from 2010-2014, I decided to apply this experience into something new. I studied at SCAD and gained my Advertising degree with a focus in Art Direction. Walking out of school, I had a full understanding of how to apply graphic design to brands, what it takes to create something unique, and most importantly, how to storytell. Through this experience I was able to accomplish these things:
Win 1st place in the SCAD Advertising department for a 24-hour campaign turn around for Beats by Dre hosted by MKTG
Work part-time as a graphic designer for a print and branding agency
Become the Art Director of a mobile charity application startup
When I graduated SCAD, I was once again on the hunt to improve my skillset. Knowing how important digial experiences are, I joined Marketwake, a digital marketing agency focused on online experiences and full picture marketing. Through applying my previous skills, knowledge, and experience, I was able to move from intern to art director within the span of 3 years. With this experience I was able to expand my knowledge base into these things:
The importance of SEO and how to maximize it's utilization
Paid Ads and the life cycle from click to conversion
How to design and build a website from start to finish
Team management and the importance of vulnerability
How to create a wholistic branding project from logo to web to paid ads to social
