Meghan Newell is a art director, designer, illustrator and animator with more than a decade of experience spanning ad agencies, design studios, and one special company.

Most recently a senior creative at Lyft, I enjoyed building the brand for nearly five years as the company scaled from a tiny start-up of 70 to a nationally known company. Growing with the company, I created everything from explainers and training videos, to brand guidelines and email templates, to landing pages and social content, as well as printed schwag, booklets and brochures. I art directed campaigns and outside agencies, managed designers, and made endless ads, as well as contributing to the design of our app.

Previously, I spent about a decade freelancing for ad agencies, design studios and direct-to-client doing motion/interactive art direction, design, illustration and animation - highlights include design work on the groundbreaking apple ipod silhouette spots, designing tv titles and show packages for MTV, VH1 and Current TV, storyboard design for many national commercials, and design work on high profile websites for blockbuster movies and fancy automobiles.

I love everything involved with visual communication, and thrive on using keen observation, curiosity, and a dual obsession with technology and design to create beautiful solutions.
