Having completed one year of Photographic and Situated Media, also at UTS, Meredith realised that Graphic Design and Typography was a greater passion for her.</p><p>Through her childhood her artistic flair was identified by her father Allen and was encouraged by her mother from a young age.&nbsp; She then decided to study her passion to enable herself to develop her artistic skills into a field she can work in.&nbsp; Holding a GPA of above 3, Meredith has been able to secure herself some successful internships, the latest being with one of Sydney’s leading brand agencies “Principals” Meredith’s aim is to gain further experience in the professional field of design so that she may develop her existing skills and add many more to her repertoire.</p>
