About Whitespace Creative, LLC:
Melissa J White is an award-winning designer and writer focusing on the expression of unrecognized beauty using both a verbal and a visual language.
As a commercial designer in the field of advertising, Melissa uses exquisite detail and a full range of design styles to develop singular and productive identities and campaigns. She has worked at every aspect of design from a pre-digital, analog workflow to a fully-digital design environment.

During her tenure, the agency secured the following long-term accounts: the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Santa Fe County, First National Bank of Santa Fe, the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, the Lensic and 999dine.com. As creative director, Melissa handled designers, illustrators and photographers, planned and oversaw all print and web creative, helped develop marketing and media plans, directed the departmental budget and worked as an account manager. Impressions began an agency internship program with the Greer Garson Theatre during this time.
