I'm Lisa Engler, an illustrator and designer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I make things for brands, products, and people — often with wit and always with heart.

I'm a native Iowan, semi-long-time Californian, and current Minnesotan. A connoisseur of good pizza, bad jokes, and kitschy home decor. A professional introvert, hobbyist musician, and abysmal athlete. An enthusiastic ambassador of Mid-Century Americana, neon signage, and greasy diners. A big fan of lists of three.

An illustrative designer, a designy illustrator

I draw (lol) from my background in both illustration and design to create concept-driven solutions packed with personality — visuals that both resonate with people and produce measurable results.

I've worked with product teams and with marketing teams, in agencies and in-house, both on teams and on my own. I consider myself a generalist who feels at home in any role or team, and I love it all! I value accessible and inclusive design above all, no matter the medium.
