I'm Katie and, as you may have guessed, I made that.
I'm a designer living in Austin, Texas. I'm a pattern enthusiast, proud cat mom, and a sucker for a competitive cooking show. I'm a planner and a fan of a good, hefty notebook. I can't remember the last time I went a week without eating a taco. And, at some point, I became the owner of two businesses: Katie Made That and The Monster Project.
Patterns can add so much personality to a space or an object. They are amazing tools for self-expression and have the ability to completely transform their surroundings.
It's my goal to create patterns and designs that connect with people and fit into their lives in a way that allows them to say something about themselves and their aesthetic that they couldn't say alone. I love that I can make something and infuse it with my own artistic voice, and then it can completely change and take on a new life when someone brings it into their home and works it into their vision.
I look forward to expanding Katie Made That's product line to textiles, home goods, notebooks, and more as my business grows.
Process & Materials
All the products in my shop are designed by me in my home studio. I work with a local Austin printer to screen print my larger poster-sized prints. The remainder of the products are carefully printed in full-color on premium paper stocks.
I only choose papers that I know are created sustainably by mills that I trust. Most of the paper I use comes from French Paper, which is powered by fully renewable hydroelectric generators, and Neenah Paper, which provides 100% cotton papers made from textile industry waste by-products.
I'm open to collaborations and commissions or to answer any questions you may have! The freelance work I typically take on includes: custom wedding invitations, branding and identity projects, illustration and lettering, and commercial art direction. Feel free to send an email to Hello@KatieMadeThat.com about whatever you've got in mind!
