Fresh Faces at Chandler, Inc.
We’re thrilled to welcome three fresh faces to Chandler, Inc.! Project management and design were the lucky departments to snag some rising new talent. Without further ado, please meet the team!
Will Madison, Graphic Designer
Will joins the Chandler team with a bachelor’s degree in graphic design from the University of Minnesota Duluth. During Will’s time at UMD, he was a graphic designer and visual director at UMD’s student newspaper. There he practiced his skills in illustrations and branding. Further, he applied his skills in environmental design elements and mock-ups to several large branding projects.
At Chandler Will will create 2D graphic elements to be used for internal an external clients as well as in unison with 3D design projects. Will is most excited to work and collaborate with a big team of designers with many areas of expertise. As a young designer, and someone just starting his career, he is excited to expand his skills in any part of the design process that he’ll have the chance to experience at Chandler.
In Will’s spare time, you’ll find him watching movies, reading various novels (including the latest Neal Stephenson’s novels), as well as working on starting an Etsy store with a friend selling various craft goods.
Morgan Merritt, Project Manager
Morgan joins Chandler with a bachelor’s degree in global business leadership from the College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, MN. She has spent the last two years at Target as an in-store executive team lead for logistics, general merchandising, and food and beverage. There she focused on the “how’s and why’s” of the business which led to that location (Buffalo, MN) being selected as one of the two logistics test stores for the company.
Morgan is thrilled to meet everyone at Chandler and start her new role as a Project Manager, “an exciting and challenging opportunity.” Further, she’s excited to use her existing expertise while continuing to learn more about project management.
Morgan shares this about her personal life: I was lucky enough to be raised in a small town in southwest MN called Canby, where my parents owned a farm and raised beef cattle. I enjoy spending time with my friends, family and my “little sister” Rayven from the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program!
Drew Richardson, 3D Designer
Drew joins the Chandler team with a bachelor’s degree in industrial design from UW Stout. During Drew’s time at Stout, he practiced his skills in SolidWorks, sketching and Key Shot, as well as hand modeling prototypes. Further, Drew will be responsible for creating design collateral for client projects along with internal work for Chandler. Drew is most excited to be working beside a team of designers who are passionate about success, “a group that is always trying to find the best possible way to complete a task.” With that he is looking forward to growing as a designer and as a professional, alike.
In Drew’s spare time, you’ll find him riding mountain bikes with friends, going to the gym, and hanging out with his cat, Kitty!
