Employee Spotlight – Melanie Lueft
Today we are introducing Melanie Lueft, our Communications Designer. While her work is directly visible, she is usually operating in the background; something that needs to change.
Melanie, tell us what you do at travel audience.
I am part of the marketing team since the beginning of the year. I take care of everything that needs to be designed. I am lucky, because there is a wide range of things I work on. It is not only layout work, but also creating logos, filming and editing.
Tell us about your background.
I love drawing and doing handicrafts ever since I was a child. So I knew I need to do something creative in my professional life. That’s why I did an apprenticeship as a media designer after school; and because I could not get enough of it, I started studying Communications Design afterwards. I am working here at travel audience as a few working student.
