How does
she do that?

ONE

Workshops

Creates workshops and experiences that build empathy and better engage users and clients throughout the design process.

TWO

Frameworks

Creates frameworks to guide critical thinking, to streamline the ideation process and to visualize complex concepts.

THREE

Visualizations

Uses various graphic approaches to make complex ideas more tangible, so that we start from a point of intrigue, rather than skepticism.

FOUR

Storytelling

Great work without a great story is meaningless. Tells inspirational stories throughout the synthesis process.

As a reluctant graphic designer, Meagan fled from a traditional path and explored her creativity in unique settings ranging from an innovation center, a museum, to a ministry within government.
