Roundtable Discussion

We’re making changes! In order to flourish as a freelancer it’s imperative we constantly evolve/adapt/grow. The same goes for our Solopreneurs group. Join our discussion and share your thoughts on the following:

What app/products do you use?
What apps are you an expert on?
Would you be willing to share your knowledge?
What apps are you interested in learning?
What speakers/topic are you interested in hearing?
How much would you pay for training?
What groups are you a part of (Slack, discord)?
Would you be interested in studio or in-house tours?
Would you go on a group field trip (Weisman, Bell, Bakken, etc.)?

Stay tuned as we’ll use the feedback to tailor future Solopreneurs meetings and events. If you can’t make it, leave feedback in our NEW Slack group #solopreneurs on the workspace. To access the workspace sign up for Design-Minn Slack Community.


Solopreneurs is a monthly meeting of independent creatives sponsored by AIGA MN. Join us for an insightful discussion on topics relevant to people working in the creative economy. Meet other local, independent freelancers, consultants, small business owners, and entrepreneurs. All creatives welcome. Free to everyone.

Leah Meilander
Leah Meilander
Chair of Solopreneurs
I am Freelance Visual Designer and Artist based in Bloomington, MN. I have over a decade of experience with brand identities, designing for print & digital, website design, event design, as well as marketing strategy & planning. Overall, I'm more of a generalist who specializes in brand strategy, graphic design, and web design.

In addition to being a freelance designer, I am also a lettering and illustration artist. A lot of my custom hand-drawn work appears in my client projects.

When I’m not designing or drawing, I enjoy climbing/bouldering, lifting, going to movies, dancing, and hanging out with family & friends.
