About Zango Creative

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 riding her off-the-track thoroughbred. On rainy days, you’ll find her at the computer with cats on her desk and dogs snoozing at her feet.

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.

Always an Artist

Published in the April 1978 copy of Reader’s Digest, and later displayed in the Junior Museum at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this watercolor by Michelle won fourth place in Kentucky Fried Chicken’s “I See Our Country’s Goodness” art contest. More than 100,000 entries were received from over 69,000 schools.

Influenced by her youth in Idaho, the painting states “The Sounds of Nature are the Sounds of our Land”.

Michelle even got a letter from Colonel Sanders.
