Five Things to Know About Our Newest Fishhooker, Meredith Erwin

April 3, 2013

Hi! I'm Meredith Erwin, graphic designer and the newest member of the Fishhook team. As Megan’s co-conspirator, I make up one half of our design team, on the second floor of our cozy office at The House on Park. Here are a few fun facts about me:

1. My hometown

I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, and I am proud of all things from my hometown, especially: Graeter’s ice cream, LaRosa’s pizza, the rolling hills and city skyline, the Cincinnati Reds, the Bengals … and goetta!

2. For fun

I love hiking, reading, learning about other cultures, and travel/road trips.

Favorite indulgence food(s): ICE CREAM! … and candy. Shortly after my arrival at Fishhook, a large bag of gummi worms appeared next to my desk. They were so popular we decided to permanently install a large candy dish, now filled with chocolate — yum!

3. My work “mantra”

An important route I have found to growth and development is through a mantra I learned in college: “Pay attention, reflect and record.” I do my best to make that a regular life habit.

4. Why I love design

For me, being a designer is about participating in the larger story of creation that God has initiated. I love working with words and images to create meaning. It's exciting!

5. Why I work at Fishhook

I love that at Fishhook I can combine my passions for visual communication and creative thinking in service to other faith communities. The flexible work environment is also a major benefit, and the Fishhook team is awesome!

The next time you are in the area, stop by and say hi. It’ll be great to meet you! Plus ... we have chocolate!
