Eric John Melkent

Born: 1963     Died: 2015

Eric John Melkent 51, executive Vice President and Creative Director for Sullivan Branding and that companies lineage for 27 years, passed away on Monday August 17, 2015. He was a graduate of Christian Brothers High School and the University of Memphis. Eric believed that the most important quality a creative professional can have is not the ability to draw or write, but to think. Impeccable taste and an uncompromising eye for the aesthetically pleasing make Eric one of the most valuable creative individuals ever seen. He had an impressive portfolio filled with some of the area's most memorable and iconic campaigns. His skills as an art director are second to none, and he was recognized for his writing as well, winning the Outstanding Copywriting Award at the local ADDY® Awards twice. Eric served as a board member for Theatre Memphis from 2003-2007. He loved the Walt Disney Company which was an inspiration to his creative thinking. Eric was preceded in death by his father Charles A Melkent. He leaves his mother Jeannine J. Melkent, two brothers Charles T. Melkent of Los Angeles, CA, Anthony J. Melkent (Teri) of Germantown, TN., a niece Garner Melkent, and a nephew Anthony Melkent. Funeral Saturday 10:15am from the Brady-Gill Funeral Home 16600 S.
