Meghan Newell is an art director, designer, illustrator and animator with more than a decade of experience. Currently senior art director at Lyft, Newell led the creation of the Lyft Economic Impact Report that took home a win in HOW’s In-House Design Awards last year. “I love everything involved with visual communication, and thrive on using keen observation, curiosity, and a dual obsession with technology and design to create beautiful solutions,” shares Newell on her website.
Newell is responsible for another one of our favorite Lyft projects: The 2016 Lyfties.
“In the second installment of Lyft’s annual awards, I was able to take the helm and rework the assets from the previous year (illustrations by the talented Danielle Diessner and website bones created with Mark Teater and Zach Cole) into a sassy new set of revamped materials which included a responsive website, award letter, business promo card, blog post, email communications and most excitingly – a fully realized physical award cast in cement that I had designed and developed in Cinema 4D.”
