It’s Friday, and with that of course comes another installment in our “Meet the Editors” series. This week’s highlighted editor is Zach Meredith, who is stepping in as our new Art and Design Editor.
Zach is a senior studying graphic design with a minor in marketing. In his spare time, he designs, listens to music, and plays basketball, but art and fashion are his true passions. Zach has been designing clothing since high school and has been running a clothing brand for almost two years. He plans to run his own fashion label on a larger scale in the future.
