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

I grew up in Iowa, began my career in California, and am now shoveling myself out of a snow bank in Minnesota. Outside of work, you'll find me hanging with my dogs, fostering more dogs, talking about dogs, and scouring the twin cities for the best vintage stores, diners, and signage.

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 on both product teams and marketing teams and both in agencies and in-house. While I love illustration most, I consider myself a generalist who feels at home in any design role or team. I value accessible and inclusive design above all, no matter the medium.
