Insights From the Intern: In Reflection   August 8, 2014

Friends, I cannot believe it’s already the last day of my BatesMeron internship, but I guess it’s a good thing to feel sad about work ending! I’m leaving here knowing that I was very lucky to work here with such fantastic people. Connecting with coworkers, improving my design skills, participating in meetings and brainstorms, and being welcomed into this family-like team was such an Continue Reading

Insights From the Intern: Preparing for August   July 18, 2014

Though we are only halfway into the month of July, it sure does feel as if August is right around the corner. The reason is probably because August is a big month for everyone here at BatesMeron, including myself. Moving day is drawing near! Though we are all ecstatic about having larger and better space, there is a lot to get done. I Continue Reading

The Sour and the Sweet   July 15, 2014

The first morning of the year I spent living with my grandmother, Mary, was mired in childish disappointment from the beginning. Not only had she woken me up extra early, but when I arrived at the breakfast table I was greeted by a bowl of Cheerios. Not Honey Nut Cheerios, mind you—the regular, normal kind. They were just bland, boring, tasteless Continue Reading

Insights From the Intern: Diving In   July 10, 2014

Time goes by fast when you’re enjoying yourself at BatesMeron! I’m almost halfway done with my internship and the sweetness still hasn’t worn off. Learning from the best is always a privilege, and being able to watch the process of great designs being born is indescribably awesome.

AMERICA   July 3, 2014

Happy Independence Day from the team at BatesMeron! We thought we’d exercise our First Amendment rights and share what the United States of America means to us: Todd Who is the most American person/character? Tim Howard What is your Fourth of July beverage of choice? Miller Lite What are you wearing for the holiday? Team USA soccer jersey and jean shorts Nina Who is Continue Reading

Insights From the Intern: Facing Fears   June 27, 2014

They say, “Practice makes perfect!” and I’m a big believer in that. This week, I faced something I dreaded the most…mounting. I don’t want to complain here—if anything, I am truly grateful—but the one thing I always got criticized for in class was my craftsmanship. Even if I were to design something that I found satisfying and pleasing to the eye, presenting Continue Reading

All Good Design Goes Unnoticed   May 27, 2014

The creative team at BatesMeron works hard to come up with design solutions that are invisible. By that, I mean we use design and creative copy that allows our clients’ vision to take center stage—not the other way around. We believe the designer’s hand should be unnoticeable in the finished product; otherwise, a “hiccup” may occur and distract the audience from Continue Reading
