Creative Happy Go Lucky
Belgian-born and formally trained in Advertising and Fine Arts in Europe, Milan launched his career at an advertising agency in Brussels before leaving the land of triple-fermented beer for the “New World” in the early 1990s. As founder of MeshCreative, he’s earned numerous awards for creative excellence, including an Addy Best of Show. Milan displays a sixth sense in translating core messages into evocative, engaging print and online concepts. When he’s not putting the style in stylus during the workweek, Milan channels his passion into cartooning and fine art, skiing, organic gardening and outdoor adventures with his on-the-go family.
Elaine Van Der Wall
Lead Web Developer
Elaine’s magazine publishing background, love of languages (both digital and spoken) and mad skills in translating client-generated content into dynamic responsive design solutions makes her a natural for working on high-end websites. She’s a wizard at taking any computer design, sprinkling it with magical codes and programming sleek websites with elegant CMS backends. Elaine’s talents away from the computer keyboard include dabbling as a henna artist, cat collector and martial arts femme fatale.
This style-minded designer has dug her heels in the advertising world for over 25 years. Monica fashions herself as a creative doodler with a flair for uncomplicated brand designs that demand lots of white space. She has a panache for developing formidable ad campaigns and brand strategies for a diverse clientele, locally and nationally… and along the way has taken home several Addy awards, including the coveted Best of Show Addy for website design. There’s nothing Monica will not take on — she’s our fearless warrior. And when she’s not doodling she can be found playing Waldorf mom, yoga instructor and candle maker.
