About
My name is William Melancon, I am a Washington DC based graphic designer currently working as the visual designer at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. As the visual design lead, I create infographics, charts, and other data visualizations to bring high level economics to a wider audience and support PIIE’s outreach and educational efforts. Most of my current work involves data heavy designs, but occasionally I get to do illustration, video work, and animation. I also do freelance work through the T-Box Design LLC.

I was born in Decatur Georgia, and subsequently raised in Southern Louisiana. My first design work came when I was deployed to Afghanistan as an Marine rifleman assigned to First Battalion, Third Marines. In addition to my regular duties, I created diagrams, maps, and other graphics. After I completed my time as an active-duty Marine I enrolled as a student at Louisiana State University, where I received my degree in graphic design. During and immediately after College I worked as a freelance grip and post motion designer in the TV commercial industry in Louisiana and was eventually hired full time at Vidox Motion Imagery, where I did motion design, animation, and set work.

In 2018 I was hired as the visual designer by the Peterson Institute, a Washington DC based economics think tank currently ranked by prospect as the best financial think tank in the world. Since then, I have been especially active creating graphics about the US / China trade war, the USMCA, and the COVID-19 pandemic. My graphics have been featured everywhere from the New York Times to Brazilian textbooks to the World Economic Forum in Davos. While in DC, I have been honored with awards from Prospect Magazine and the American Advertising Federation; and look forward to creating award winning, functional, and ground-breaking design for years to come.
