We liked Megan so much, we decided to get another one to come on board! So, meet Megan Pralle, 818’s newest designer who joined us on January 24th. Learn a little more about her below, and join us in welcoming her to the team!

Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in Mason City but grew up in the country near a tiny town called Alexander in north central Iowa. You may have even seen an exit sign for it on the interstate.

Q: How would your team describe you?
A: Passionate, fiercely loyal, and positively oozing wit and charm. Or, ya know, something like that.

Q: What is your design background?
A: I’ve been designing for more than a decade and have gotten the opportunity to work with clients both really big and really small in just about every industry and every environment you can imagine.

Q: What areas of design are you most passionate about?
A: PRINT. I’ve long had a love affair with print. Along with my love of designing for the medium I also love to put ink to paper and stretch my printmaking skills. I used to have my own letterpress and would love to get back into it.

Q: What is something you always carry with you?
A: My phone? That probably sounds sad so pretend I said something cool and interesting instead.

Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
A: I’m proud of what I’ve done with my skills and experience in design to help and give back to the non-profit community. I’m honored to be helping a handful of charities with their design needs on a freelance or volunteer basis so they can focus their time and energy on their mission.

Q: If you could learn one skill what would it be?
A: Hand lettering for sure. It’s been on my list of things to learn and I’ll get there someday!

Q: What do you like to do in your free time?
A: Watch Netflix, obsess over Chicago sports, and think about picking up a hobby.

Q: What are you most excited about at 818?
A: To finally get to work with my wonderful friends and create kickass stuff for our kickass clients!

Q: What is your favorite dinosaur?
A: The ankylosaurus! It’s the armored tank of the Cretaceous Period and it’s the best.
