• Meredith Norwood

    Product & Graphic Designer

    Hi, I'm Meredith!

    I design playful home accessories & lovable gifts

    I design home fashion accessories, gift-ables, home textiles, travel products, & apparel. My background is in advertising art direction. While I'm great at graphics, patterns, logo design, brand looks, type layout, and illustration I'm well versed at appealing to the childlike, trend savvy, and practical consumer.

     

    I have created brands & products that are sold in stores like Homegoods, Jonathan Adler, Bloomingdales, TJ Maxx, Nordstrom, Target, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and DSW to name a few.

     

    My purpose is to provide high quality and inspired design for those who fit within my design style. I enjoy playful, colorful design that makes others happy, balanced with sophisticated and minimalist looks. I always aim for ease in readability, emotional appeal, and smart design.

     

    I'm open to taking on new clients, so feel free to shoot me a message!

    Work & Travel

    I'm a light-hearted & ethical designer who's not afraid to take risks.

    I work remotely while I travel. Being in new locations always inspires me. I've developed a method that allows me to travel full time while designing.

     

    As a part of my love of travel, I've founded a travel eCommerce store, Farawild. It also satisfies my overall initiative to create things and parter with other makers who are designing products that make a difference with waste-reducing initiatives or sustainable purposes.

  • Accomplishments

    Here are some of the most notable things I've done.

    Made waves at my first job

    Working at my first design position out of college, I created a well regarded brand look and feel for a local high end fashion boutique. I also spearheaded developing an in-house photography department for the agency.

    Self Motivated

    Early in my career I started my own business, learning to self-manage and support myself creatively and independently.

    Risk-Taker

    Seeking more out of my career creatively, I took the plunge to relocate to New York as a product & graphic designer at Jonathan Adler, where even in a smaller role, I designed a series of products that Jonathan Adler still sells (and he himself posts Instagram photos of) to this day.

    Wears Multiple Hats

    As the Lead Product Designer in a start up home accessories company, I was essential in creating product lines, developing multiple product collections, creating new brands, and communicating directly with factories. Over four years we built the start-up into a multi-million dollar company.

    Note Worthy

    While working for over 12 years in product and brand design, I have created over 70 product design collections and designed over 60 successful brands across multiple industries, many of which are still sold in stores today.

    The beginning of 2018 marked a new era to go completely independent and start my own brand and products. Farawild is a Zero Waste Travel brand focused on female travelers. We list items from other makers as well as our own products designed for a minimalist travel lifestyle.
