Open Discussion

Students from the MCAD Entrepreneur program are invited to attend this month’s Solopreneurs meeting. Additionally, any current students or emerging designers are invited to attend. To facilitate more inclusive perspectives while balancing relevant dialogue we will focus on topics applicable to students, emerging designers and freelancing. After attendee intros we’ll hear from the students and answer any questions. Discussion will open up to finding work, networking, personal branding, specializing vs. generalizing, education, training, future of design and related topics.

The Coven requests masks be wore in public spaces and proof of vaccination.

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.
