Meredith Christine is a designer, artist and creative director who focuses on experiential conceptualization in both the digital and physical space. She is the co-founder and creative director of three successful businesses and has become a sought-after collaborator and in-demand artist.
While her road to entrepreneurship wasn’t traditional, it seems that her path was one she was destined for. An undergraduate degree in Studio Art paired with a graduate degree in Architecture honed her eye while teaching her about spatial relationships, connectivity of people to the built environment, social entrepreneurship and sustainability. The foundation was laid for a desire to pursue design in a holistic manner, centered on provoking emotions through experience of brand, space, art and ideas.
Before finishing school, Meredith started designing and making jewelry. Marked by a modern simplicity and a bold personal touch, her Fool’s Gold line quickly became a go-to favorite for her customers. Her guideline for fashion is to unsettle the norm and create pieces based not solely on season or collection, but on inspiration, quality and longevity. The growth of the brand led to the opening of a lifestyle boutique in 2016. Here, Meredith was able to design the in-store experience to match the brand’s focus on ethical production and modern design.
As the company grew, Meredith simultaneously launched Gold Standard, a digital media and lifestyle brand covering ethical fashion, clean beauty and sustainable lifestyle. Through Gold Standard, Meredith creates original visual narratives, sharing a discerning edit of modern and considered experiences through the lens of sustainability.
Meredith oversees all brands and projects out of her downtown headquarters – The 109 Studios. The space is part showroom and part studio. The showroom is filled with her jewelry designs and collaborations with designers from all over the world. The studio focuses on visual thinking and design in the fields of jewelry and accessories, fashion, beauty, art, travel and culture. The spectrum is wide: collaborations, design projects, products, films, identities, brand building, creative direction and much more.
