Meredith’s studio design practice includes client work, pro-bono work, and experimental work that has been exhibited across the US.
Graphics & Hand Lettering:
Examples of Meredith’s hand-lettering and illustration can be found in the various exhibitions she’s shown her work in, the publications she’s designed, and incorporated into client work as well. Meredith was classically trained in hand-lettering at Cranbrook Academy of Art, while studying under Elliott Earls and receiving guidance from visiting designers like David Cabianca. Not only can she hand letter, but she has developed full fonts to work with in her own projects. These fonts are not commercially available and so add a level of uniqueness to the projects she creates.
LIVD Vol. 15.2:
LIVD is an experimental design publication that comes out annually. The publication is dedicated to the intersection of art, design, culture and how these influence lived experience. Created and designed by Meredith, the publication includes contributions from artists and designers from across the country. LIVD follows the model of early twentieth century experimental designers, as a publication that is meant to present and challenge ideas. Articles range from academic to personal, from poetry to prose. Visit LIVD.in
