Chief Creative Officer
Her artistic talent, creativity and business sense make Meredith a coveted addition to any project. With impeccable taste in graphic design, entrepreneurial spirit and creative ideas, she believes a strong brand and smart plan can solve any visual communication challenge. She is highly organized, a whiz at presenting ideas and strives to strike a balance between form and function.
As an award-winning designer, art director, and overall brand builder, Meredith has spent the majority of her 15-year career helping companies tell their stories in meaningful and beautiful ways. She has the unique ability to work in many styles, from fun and funky to corporate and classic. She owned her own creative design agency, MSNCreate, until merging with Cookson Communications in 2016. She brings with her experience working at Seventeen Magazine, Betsey Johnson and countless event marketing companies, along the way working on creative for household names like Charmin, Naked Juice, Jack-in-the-Box, MegaFood and Petco. She also volunteers as an illustrator for The Superhero Project, an organization where artists design alter-egos imagined by kids and teens with serious illnesses and special needs.
Education: Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration from Syracuse University
The creative process: Meredith is a firm believer that the best brands are set apart by impeccable design, clear messaging and consistency. She’ll uncover your company’s identity – its story – its mojo – and use it to make your brand look awesome and unique.
Drawing cute animals, pop culture, fitness and her family (not necessarily in that order): Meredith, an accomplished horsewoman, has happily passed the reins to her daughter Chloe, who competes for her college equestrian team. In her downtime, Meredith maintains a daily yoga practice and hopes to someday do a handstand without fearing for her life. She and her husband Dan can be found taking last-minute trips to NYC to see The Tonight Show and SNL, making TikToks of her pet hedgehog Franklin and designing animal-themed merch for her Threadless artist shop.
