Hello, Hallmark!

I’m excited to apply for your Artist position! It's like the job description was written just for me. Here's why…

I have extensive experience in stationery and product design. It’s my passion, hands down.

My Background

Most importantly, I’ve been creating fresh original designs for a long time and know the importance of the customer’s experience.

I’ve worked at design agencies, been an in-house designer for companies like Shutterfly and TiVo, and Cosmopolitan magazine. I also started my own side business, Harken Press, creating letterpress retails products in 2012. I know that I can apply my skills and knowledge to benefit Hallmark.

Why I’m Interested in This Job

I love the stationery and gift industry. Creating fun eye-catching designs to celebrate life’s big moments is what I’m meant to do – whether that’s illustration, products or packaging. Hallmark is a proven leader in the industry and I’ve been inspired by what you all create for as long as I can remember. I’m looking for a place where I can enjoy what I do, create work I’m proud of and collaborate with good people. I know I can do that at Hallmark.

I appreciate your time and hope to hear from you soon!

Cheers,
Brynne Meyer

  • I'm a self taught letterpress printer. I restored my vintage Heidelberg press that weighs over 3,000 lbs. I lovingly call it “The Beast”. See photos here

  • I’ve worked remotely from my home office for 8 years. I've become an excellent communicator, efficient multi-tasker and know how to get the job done.

Fun Facts About Me:

  • I was born in New Jersey, grew up in Louisiana, lived in California for 9 years, and just moved to Texas. 

  • I enjoy painting with my kids, any kind of dress-up theme party, and singing in the car with my husband (we both sound absolutely terrible).

  • I was named after an actress in the 80’s that was on the TV soap, One Life to LiveReal classy. 

  • To me, my cup is always half full and I think my attitude is one of my most valuable strengths.
