A page out of Schneider’s sketchbook; Character design renditions of the nursery rhyme “Hey Diddle, Diddle...”

Margaret Schneider, Senior, Glyphix Student Designer

Meg Schneider had no previous exposure to design prior to attending Kent State University. She also never considered design as a career. According to Schneider, “I never toured the school, I never came to see the Art Building, I just jumped and I’m glad I did!”

Being the youngest in her family of seven, Schneider has had some pretty large shoes to fill. Her four older siblings’ professions include doctor, pharmacist, architect and lawyer. Her family has instilled in her a value of working hard that has followed her into her college career. While pursuing her undergraduate degree, Schneider has held full-time and part-time employment, yet still maintains her honors-level academic achievements. After graduation she hopes to land a job where she can work in both two-dimensional design and illustration.

“Design is an experience. You put your whole soul into your work in hopes that someone else may experience it, too.”

WHAT OTHER ACTIVITIES DO YOU DO BESIDES SCHOOL AND IDEABASE?

“I love to work with technology. Before starting at Kent State, I worked for the local stagehands as an electrician and sound engineer for various shows and concerts. I also love to do carpentry. I just enjoy working with my hands, building and fixing things.”
