J+M History
Hi, there! I am Meredith Locklear, a graphic designer by profession and I can say for sure #ilovemyjob.

I began Jack and Molly in 2008. At the time, I was selling art in a boutique in Raleigh, North Carolina and decided to take the business online via Etsy. Hey, why not? My son had just been born and I was pretty much at home on any given evening and weekend. It was a hobby and a fun one at that.

I quickly realized there was a considerable amount of new businesses on Etsy and beyond that needed logo and branding help. I started with a few clients, and those few clients were happy with their results and passed my name along, and those few continued to pass my name along, and here I am, 6 years later- with clients all over the world.

In 2011, I decided to leave a full-time position as a Creative Director for another company and do J+M all the time.

Experience + Education
My experience includes serving 4 years as the Creative Director and Production Manager for a national, weekly publication (with a circulation of more than 100,000 each week) and a rockin' apprenticeship at a strategic communications firm (who have won some great awards like the ADDY, AIGA, SABRE, Pinnacle Business, Holmes Report, Telly and more.) I walked away with a wealth of knowledge and experience worth gold.

I hold a BA in Graphic Design from Peace College (now William Peace University) where I graduated with honors and received the Artemisia Excellence in Art Award.

Life + Interests
I design logos and other business branding and advise clients on marketing. I love art in any form and enjoy bringing traditional art mediums to the screen- from India ink and watercolor, to hand-rendered illustrations.

You can usually find me in my studio with a huge cup of coffee (often sprinkled with eraser dust, gross, right?), IDM, classical or hip-hop on loud and designing logos like a champ. I have a 6-year-old son named Jackson (and a niece named Molly, thus ‘Jack and Molly’) that is the light of my life.

My Mantra
I believe in treating others with kindness; I believe in minimalism and not buying a ton of “ stuff ”, spending time outside enjoying sunshine and fresh air, and reminding myself how fortunate I am to lead a happy, healthy life.
