Melissa Green is a graphic designer who loves to make things with her hands. She uses a combination of digital and handmade processes in her work including film photography, printmaking, letterpress, and bookbinding. Much of her personal work is driven by an interest in economics, social justice, and domestic policy. Her essay the Gutenberg Economy, which she presented at the College Book Art Association Conference in 2013, traces the connection between the development of print and modern economic theory. She discussed her ongoing attempts to merge her wide-ranging interests in a 2014 interview with Design Feaster. She also blogs about fitness and self-care at metricdisco.com.
Melissa currently resides in Brooklyn, NY and works at the Women's Equality Center, where she assists with strategic communications for a variety of reproductive rights campaigns. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Visual Arts with a minor in Economics from Purchase College.
