proximity & placement, growth & change 

bailey meadow (she/her) smushes together vibrant colors and humor within her work. 

trained as a graphic designer at the minneapolis college of art and design (december 23’), her practice extends into art and craft through printmaking and collage. currently, meadow works as a student designer at designworks, the college’s in-house design studio. most days at designworks include creating identities for projects, utilizing mcad’s branding guidelines, prompted by a partner/department within the school. the end results are digital to print and everything in between.

while at mcad, meadow has earned recognition for her design knowledge and overall academic excellence. in early 2022, she received the graphic design merit scholarship through a small exhibition of her work. later, meadow was included in the 2022 made at mcad show with her risograph-printed zine how did i not meet you sooner?. she has obtained a spot on the dean’s list for a majority of her semesters at mcad.

meadow champions inclusion, community, empathy, and sustainability overall, within design and the world around her. she strives to make good design more accessible by creating useful solutions to benefit the people and places she loves. her work focuses on themes of change, growth, wonder, and perception. meadow’s goal is to deliver a homemade and playful tangibility to her work that brings comfort and joy to audiences.

what gets meadow out of bed in the morning? colors that appear to vibrate when next to each other; grape juice; her roommate’s two cats, wallace and walnut; reaching out to friends and being reached to; feeling the sunshine, even through the clouds.
