AE Dreams wants to bring the limitless possibilities of technology to kids’ toys in unique and imaginative ways. Their first toy, Turtle Mail, can currently be pre-ordered on their website.

“Meg has been an amazing addition to our team. She is someone who can look at a problem that is complex and messy and find an elegant solution. We hired Meg to help us conduct user research, develop our content strategy, and launch a Kickstarter campaign for our first product, Turtle Mail. AE Dreams is a startup, and like most startups we find ourselves getting pulled in multiple directions at once. Meg has helped us organize our goals and clearly state our company’s vision. It’s evident that Meg is a researcher at heart, and she takes a lot of pride in understanding and connecting with our users. Her next project will be to help us evaluate and redesign the web application interface for Turtle Mail, and I am very excited to see her proposals and the results of her design research. I wholeheartedly recommend Meg to any team facing a design challenge in their work.” – Alysia Finger, CEO
