Introducing Melia Dicker

by Melia | Director of Client Success

Hello! I’m Melia Dicker. Some of you may know me as Darren’s wife, or as his co-founder at Creative Distillery. I’d like to introduce myself to some of you, and get reacquainted with those I worked with when I was on the team the first time around.

A Range of Experience

When I relocated from my native California to Jackson, I co-founded Creative Distillery with Darren and then made a career shift after our son, Evan, was born. I went to work for two large state agencies and an education foundation, where I gained a variety of valuable experience: developing digital marketing and public relations strategies, managing a large-scale social media following, and working on big-budget advertising campaigns that included email marketing, video production, and cross-platform media buying. I also had a chance to sit on the client’s side of the table, which helped me understand how Creative Distillery’s clients experience working with us. I’m excited to bring the skills I’ve gained back to the agency where my career in marketing started, so we can serve our clients even better.

A New Role — Director of Client Success

Our main focus at Creative Distillery has always been to create work that delights you and helps achieve your goals. Darren and I created a new position for me, the Director of Client Success, to focus exclusively on making sure we’re moving the needle for you. I’ll be your main point of contact, guiding your projects from intake to completion and monitoring your results (sales, social media engagement, web traffic, and so on). As I return to Creative Distillery, I’m most excited about making a positive impact in many different arenas through marketing. We work with organizations and businesses in fields as diverse as health care, manufacturing, and government, and it’s incredibly rewarding to help you leave your corner of the world better than we found it.

You can reach me at I look forward to meeting with you soon and creating beautiful, powerful work together.

We’re (Still) Growing! Now Hiring a Graphic Designer

by Darren Schwindaman | Principal / Designer

Creative Distillery Design Team Update: The Graphic Designer position is currently filled. However, we do accept portfolios so that we know who's around. We’re hiring a graphic designer to join our team. Design is the heart of our firm and we try to foster an environment that preserves as much as possible of what you loved about design school while making it work for the everyday real world. If you liked your design class critique sessions, this is the job for you. Must haves:
  • Typography chops
  • Ability to morph between different visual styles
  • Desire to embrace and understand client subject material
  • Love challenges
  • An open mind, staying current on trends
  • Savvy on digital design
  • Think big and creatively but sweat the details when it’s time for that
  • Do I need to list Adobe Creative Suite here?
  • Savvy with web UI/UX
  • An “image-making” talent: Illustration, photo/video, digital
I’m a big believer in variety and our client base reflects that. A typical week might see an annual report for a large nonprofit, sketching out a new logo design, or resizing a batch of photos for social media. New ideas are always welcome, and part of the reason for our expansion is to create more time for creative experimentation. We are a team culture-driven young office located right in the middle of Jackson’s thriving Fondren neighborhood. The ideal person is self-motivated and constantly challenging and growing. The designer will work under me and alongside Kaiyla, our current designer.
