The Zango Team
Michelle Drewien, President & Creative Director
Michelle brings interest, high energy, and a brilliant color palette to each project. With more than 20 years experience in the digital industry, she knows exactly how to produce top-notch designs tailored to your individual style and needs of your business. As Senior Designer, Art Director, Product Designer, and Creative Director, Michelle has worked for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to the business next door.
Originally from southeast Idaho, Michelle holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and has received national recognition for her works, beginning at age 10 when she had a painting exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and published in Reader's Digest.
Michelle finds creative inspiration in her garden-like design studio, and muses over creative problems while watering her lush Seattle flowers. On rainy days, you'll find her at the computer with a dog snoozing at her feet and her daughter drawing on the office walls.
Vinny McKee, Web Developer
Vinny possesses a degree in Management Information Systems from Washington State University and has over ten years of experience developing professional websites and web solutions. He brings to the team his expert programming skills along with a strong understanding of web standards, best practices, and current trends. When he is not busy developing solutions for Zango Creative, he is hard at work at his own Seattle web development company, Driven Development. In his free time, Vinny enjoys going to movies, playing his Fender guitar and, of course, being with friends.
Greg McDonald, SEO & Internet Marketing
After studying pre-veterinary medicine at Washington State University, Greg McDonald worked in non-profit organization management and marketing for 10 years. Greg honed his writing and marketing skills where selling an idea is harder than selling a product or service. He developed and managed sophisticated direct mail campaigns as well as produced public interest print, television and radio advertising. Greg founded Consulatio in 2004, an Internet marketing and Search Engine Optimization company. He has spearheaded SEO campaigns for a diverse range of companies including Holland America Lines, Anne Geddes, HP and scores of small to medium-size companies. When not reviewing Google Stats, you can find Greg working in his well-equipped gourmet kitchen refining recipes for friends.
