Hello! I'm Lisa Engler, an independent illustrator and designer in the San Francisco Bay Area. I create brands, products, and experiences — often with wit and always with heart.
After growing up in small town Iowa, I moved to California upon graduation in search of a plan and a tan and a man. (One out of three ain’t bad!) I’ve spent the six years since working within studios, tech companies, and independently — striving for solutions that make sense and visuals that make people happy.
A coworker once described me as “giving a shit while not giving a shit,” which I like to think means I pour my heart into things that matter and don't sweat the small stuff. Another coworker once described me as “cool,” which I like to insert into casual conversation as often as possible.
I love bad jokes, good pizza, old signs, new friends, talking to my dog, and talking about my dog. I spend most of my free time waiting in line for the bathroom because I am a woman.
