Lawless Design


Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.


Katie Lawless

Throughout my life, I have had a passion to create. As a child, I had a disposable camera everywhere I went and every spare moment I spent at home, I was creating videos and video editing. One of the other things that lights me up is bringing a smile to a person’s face. Bringing joy to people and creating things that make a difference, that is my mission in life. Whether that joy comes from someone loving their new brand, reminiscing over a photo they love, or having an app that makes their day a little easier, I love to solve problems and make the days a little brighter.

When I was growing up, I had the privilege of getting to teach children with special needs. It was an experience that gave me valuable skills that I still use today. It was hard work, exhausting, and trying at times but it was the most rewarding experience I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. The smile on the parents and children’s faces as they developed has given me an appreciation of even the smallest successes. That experience makes me want to continue to make people feel like a success even if the path to get there is not an easy one.

I have also learned the value of failure. While success stories have helped me to grow and deepen my passion for design, my mistakes and my failures have helped me to appreciate good design. Mistakes are where we learn, and there have been times where I have had tried to do things that have not worked out the way I envisioned. Stepping back, re-evaluating and learning from those choices has taught me a great deal but it has not made me any less interested in continuing, in testing out new things, and in design.

Design is a creative practice that individuals experience every day, whether they realize it or not. Every poster, every app, every website, someone made choices that determine how people will interact with it. Making work that brings joy to individuals is no small feat to me. It is something I am very proud to be a part of and I want to continue to create success stories for individuals around the world. If you are interested in creating a success story with me, shoot me an email and let’s work together to create.
