Meredith has been hand-lettering, designing typefaces, and illustrating graphics for many years now. Examples of her 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.
Type and illustration are as much a matter of formal exploration as they are a matter of semiotics (the study of signs and their meaning) and modes of representation. As an educator, Meredith also has years of experience teaching these concepts and forms to students, helping them understand how visual language expresses and communicates.
