Megan Enderle is a junior, majoring in visual communications design and minoring in marketing. This is her first semester working on The Burr. Her dream is to land a job as an in-house designer for a company in Cleveland. In her free time, she enjoys going on adventures with her friends, being with family, hammocking, drinking coffee and baking. Megan loves to travel and on the top of her “travel wish list” is Switzerland. But without a doubt, her favorite place to be is at her cottage along Lake Erie.
Madeleine Kidd is a sophomore studying visual communication design, and this is the first semester she will be designing for The Burr. Currently, Madeleine works for Kent State’s Center for Teaching and Learning and A Magazine as a designer. She aspires to move to New York City upon graduation and work as a graphic designer for a magazine. When she is not cramming projects or updating her killer Spotify playlists, you usually can find her at Kent’s local coffee shops, or simply indulging herself in 10 cups of coffee by 11 a.m. on an average day. She enjoys hanging out with her friends, family and especially her dog Zoey (whom she has accumulated an excessive amount of pictures of over the years).
Lauren Friedman. is a senior visual communication design major with a minor in photo illustration from Louisville, Ohio. This is Lauren’s first semester with The Burr as a designer. In the past, she has worked for Uhuru Magazine, the Kent Stater and interned at Big Ass Solutions located in Lexington, Kentucky, where she worked on promotional marketing designs. After graduation, Lauren plans to work at a small design firm. During her free time she enjoys playing with dogs and making bad jokes that no one else laughs at.
Alexis Scranton is a junior in the visual communication design program with a double minor in photo-illustration and art history. This is her fourth semester as a designer and illustrator for The Burr, so I guess you could say she is nearly as old as time. Alexis doesn’t like to talk about her hopes for the future because hope is for the bourgeois capitalist machine. That or the unknown scares the crap out of her. But if she were to actually have some kind of dream to pursue, it would be as a “Drunk History” historian where her expertise would lie in art history and she could tell all of the scandalous stories of the world’s most famous and long dead artists. And maybe draw some pictures of dogs. Outside of being a graphic designer, Alexis enjoys napping as much as she can. Some call that depression. She calls it “me time.” Trying to list things she enjoys and wants to do with her life is too hard to try to put into words because nothing is absolute, college is almost over for her, and life is meaningless and unforgiving. Maybe she would like to get a job in the graphic design field, maybe she’d like to embezzle billions of dollars from America’s top 1 percent and give it to dog shelters and live a modest life doing what she loves without fear and pressure of never making money as an illustrator. Life is hard. And she is tired. She just wants to make it to her “Carrie Fisher kicking ass” phase of her life already.
