DESCRIPTION

Here are examples of some of the work I have created during my four years at Elon. Please contact me if you are interested in seeing a print portfolio as well.

TRANSCRIPT

  • Katherine Lisa Meyer The greatest waste of our natural resources is the number of people who never achieve their potential. Get out of that slow lane. Shift into that fast lane. If you think you cant, you wont. If you think you can, theres a good chance you will. Even making the effort will make you feel like a new person. Reputations are made by searching for things that cant be done and doing them. Aim low, boring. Aim high, soaring.

    My name is Katie Meyer and I was born and raised in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Since high school I have had a strong passion for design. Summer 2007, I had an internship at an advertising agency and had the opportunity to learn more about design and its applications. Recently, I have been channelling my passion for design through working with local clients to design flyers, advertisements and newsletters.

    I am a student at Elon University in North Carolina. I plan to graduate from Elon University in May 2009 with a B.A. in Corporate Communications and a minor in Digital Art.

    I enjoy traveling and spending time with family and friends. I spent January 2008 in London for study abroad.

    My dream job once I graduate would be to work for Costal Living Magazine doing page design and layout.

    Aim low, boring. Aim high, soaring.

    e Festive Red BerryCranberries have long been a staple of the holiday table,but thats about all that has remained constant in the produc-tion and processing of the tart red berry. North Carin looks back at the history and writes about this fruits profound impact on the Capes farming and economy.

    Kindling Holiday Warmth Cape Codders recall the times when their holiday brought special meaning to their lives.

    Family Traditions rough all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, Cape fami-lies take time to share some of their family traditions.

    An Electric ApproachWhen architects Sharon and John DaSilva rst saw Stage Island in Chatam, they found inspiration for a new home in a wooded lot with a steep grade and a narrow view of Stage Harbor. Terry Ward me with the couple and learned how they brought shingle-style design to their home, creating unique, dramatic and a ordable home.

    In Fine FeatherFall migration might peak by mid-September for many birders, but there are still thousands of birds to be seen here, well into the winter. North Carin talks to ornithologists and naturalists about where to go and what to watch for in the ritual of migration, which remains one of the great marvels of the natural world.

  • I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

    Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears, and true to our founding documents.

    So it has been. So it must be with this generation of Americans.

    That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost; jobs shed; businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly; our schools fail too many; and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.

    These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Less measurable but no less profound is a sapping of confidence across our land a nagging fear that Americas decline is inevitable, and that the next generation must lower its sights.

    Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America they will be met.

    On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over co
