Working as a CD at Denver’s Amélie since June, Jacqueline Mellow fairly recently relocated to Colorado from New York where she worked as a freelancer for many years across the big-agency circuit. Jacqueline’s been in the advertising and design world for 12+ years — going from working in larger advertising agencies on big brands such as Cadillac, Hallmark and Miller to working in more intimate interactive shops on clients such as Fresca and Humane Society.
In addition to being obsessed with design, Jacqueline leads a double life as an author where she’s won awards and hit best seller’s lists. She is also the co-founder of She Is Booked, a literary-themed fundraising organization that supports women’s charities.
Here’s a sample of her interview from the Amélie blog where you can continue learning more.
Q: What do you love about Amélie?
A: I love our mission, our people and our clients. After coming from NYC advertising and working with consumer brands after consumer brands—while it was definitely fun— spending every waking moment (and sleepless nights) thinking about how to sell a sugar-overloaded soda to children, can wear on anyone. I was hungry for clients that I not only believed in but were doing good for our world. Amélie is the jackpot for this kind of work. Add on co-workers that are not only kindhearted but are passionate about helping cause-based initiatives, you’ve got a recipe for a pretty spectacular unicorn.
