An award-winning designer working on page and screen.
I'm Megan King, an Associate Creative Director, designer and brand consultant in Chicago. For the past 14 years, I've been lucky to do meaningful work for some amazing brands, start ups and small businesses. I've collaborated with large organizations such as Alcon, Coca-Cola, Citibank, Kraft, Reynolds and the Chicago Cubs while also helping grow smaller brands like Focal Point, Schawk!, Carestream and Alpolic. I have a BFA from Illinois State University, and completed my postgraduate design work at the Chicago Portfolio School.
I specialize in branding, communication design, logos, packaging and brand strategy. My process is a blend of research and design strategy to create the most meaningful and compelling story. I am still interested in painting and sculpture and will jump at the opportunity to get my hands dirty. When I am not at my computer, you might find me practicing calligraphy in my sunlit studio with a latte. I've taught campaign and branding classes at the Chicago Portfolio School, and I take salsa dancing lessons at Latin Rhythms.
You can absolutely find me at the next Creative Mornings talk but if you would rather grab a coffee, please just drop me a line. I'm a lover of volleyball, blueberries and craft brews — and I enjoy talking to strangers.
They aren't all of my niece — I sometimes include silly sketches, my paintings in progress or the occasional selfie.
Unless you're bringing craft brews, then just stop by.
