Meg is a designer from the Midwest with a love of history,  graphic design, and Chinese pizza (read: Fong’s in Des Moines, IA). She has worked on residential, multifamily, and commercial projects with clients from all across the United States. 

Meg has been honored with multiple awards, including a SRS award for research in the CCA for her honors thesis FOLD: A modern lighting line (2017) , a two time winner of Durkan’s Dscvr competition (2016,2017), and a top 5 finalist for the Kennedy Center Israeli Lounge International Design Competition in 2018.

After placing first in Durkan’s Dscvr Competition, she was commissioned to create a free standing carpet collection for Durkan, known as Symbiotic, which launched in December 2018 and has been featured in Hospitality Design Magazine . She was recruited by Durkan as a field designer in the Chicago/ North Central region, designing custom carpet for a range of branded and boutique hotels. She continues to do custom interior work and design collections under Last Word Studio.

With a passion in the hospitality segment of design with products and interiors, Meg’s goal is to create a space that is uniquely catered toward the client- whether it be through personal touches throughout a home, a saturated boutique hotel design, or a specifically branded interior for an office or storefront.
