Hello, HarperCollins!

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

I have extensive print design experience. It’s my passion, hands down. In a digital world, I like to hold something in my hands and experience it.

My Background

Creating fresh original designs is what I’m meant to do and I really enjoy my work. I started my career at Cosmopolitan magazine, worked at design agencies, been an in-house designer at companies like Shutterfly and TiVo, and am a letterpress printer. I also started my own side business, Harken Press, creating letterpress retails products in 2012. Now I’m looking for my next adventure. I know that I can apply my skills and knowledge to benefit HarperCollins Publishers.

Why I’m Interested in This Job

I know your customer, I am your customer! I’m a big reader and collector of beautiful books. I also have two young children, so I’m fully immersed in children’s books. I know that reading is important at all ages and can spark your imagination like nothing else.

I’m inspired by the work you’re creating. 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 HarperCollins. And did I mention I love books?!

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

Cheers,
Brynne Meyer

My Unique Advantages:

  • 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.

  • My family. I want my two young daughters to see their Mom enjoying her work, being driven, continually learning and growing.

Fun Facts About Me:

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

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

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

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