IQ is made up of a bunch of rockstars that make incredible work for our clients everyday. We want to give you a glimpse of what it’s like to work in IQ, so once a month we’re going to interview an IQ-er and let you get to know them better.
For the official record, what is your name and your title at IQ?
My name is Megan Hawkins and I’m a Strategist at IQ.
What is one thing you never leave the house without?
It’s so cliché, but my phone. My iPhone has everything I need on it. I wish I had a cooler answer, but I always leave home with lip balm and my phone.
Tell me about the moment you knew this was the direction you wanted to pursue professionally.
This isn’t at all what I went to school for. I went to school for Sports Broadcasting, and then realized pretty quickly freshman year that me being in front of a camera is just kind of a bad idea, I like being behind the scenes more. In my first job out of college I really loved the research, planning and strategy work I did. I also found out that I really work well in an agency environment. I enjoy the culture, the people and the smart work that goes on in an agency.
What does “Creative Intelligence” mean to you?
It’s the ability to produce work that not only is designed well and looks great, but is also supported with strategic planning and research.
What are you most passionate about in your life, and why?
I am most passionate about my family! I have a husband and a dog. My dog is a Lab-Australian Shepherd mix and we go on long walks through our neighborhood every morning. My husband and I have owned our home for a little over a year now, so we’re still exploring the adventures of renovation and home repairs. I also really like to cook and bake, and I’m saving up for a camera so I can start a food blog.
