Donald Meeker grew up in Oregon and was greatly influenced by the state’s diverse landscape, its strong conservation ethic, and public design initiatives that in the 1950s and early 60s were progressive in their time. Although a New Yorker for 35 years, that influence and ethic has guided his way of thinking. In his 30-year career as a graphic designer, he has worked for a variety of clients ranging from paper companies and hedge funds to national parks and historic sites.
