Michele Grondin has many years of experience developing graphics for both small businesses and Fortune 500 Companies. She has created layouts on a variety of projects, designing for final output to many types of media, including 4-color print, digital, and slides.
From 1994 through 2001, Ms. Grondin was employed as a graphic artist by Merrill Lynch. She began in the Presentation Graphics department, generating slides and documents for the Investment Banking division.

She was then promoted to the Multimedia department, which provided more sophisticated support for the same type of projects. Much of the work there involved creating animated presentations for the Investment Banking and Recruiting divisions, some of which utilized interactivity. Additional responsibilities included designing web sites for delivery across Merrill Lynch’s intranet.
Eventually, Ms. Grondin moved into the Research Media department where she was responsible for the daily creation of 5 to 10 banners for MLX, the sole Institutional Client web site.
