I'm Katie Meek, the creative whirlwind behind Meekly Yours. To better understand a business and where it's going, I think it's important to understand where it came from. This is my story.
I grew up on the beautiful South Carolina coast right across the river from historic Charleston. I doodled, experimented with all manner of paints, pens, and brushes, read, and soaked up the luxuriant southern sun. Despite my interest in the subject, I wasn't drawn to art classes. However, in high school, I discovered the amazing world of graphic design, while working on my high school newspaper, and thought I found my place in the world.
After high school, I attended Marymount University in Virginia, and pursued my new found interest, majoring in graphic design. Through wonderful professors, I fell in love with print design and letterform and was finally exposed to my first drawing classes. I gained wonderful friends, memories, and many growing experiences ... and a B.A.
After graduating, I joined a content marketing firm in Washington, DC, and became wrapped up in the world of print production and custom magazines. I spent nearly four years turning corporate visions into reality, first as a production assistant and later a project manager; but there was still something wanting. I was missing a creative outlet, and that's where Meekly Yours came in.
Truthfully, Meekly Yours began on a whim. It started with doodles in my sketchbook, but I wanted to make those ideas a reality. In 2015, I became a business owner, a creator, and seller of my own designs. Two years later, I'm still learning and growing. My business is constantly evolving. 2017 is off to a great start with fruitful markets and intriguing collaborations. This is the start of an amazing journey, and I'm excited to share with all of you.
