Map & Directions

Karlor’s owner, Karlie Thomas, is a Minneapolis-based multidisciplinary designer. With graphic design as the backbone of her work, she communicates her ideas and explorations of the curiosities of the world through illustration, painting and making. Her artistic work is heavily inspired by nature’s organic forms and draws many connections to her childhood growing up next to Lake Superior and its northern shores.

Karlie is a thinker, a doer, and definitely a mover + shaker (…not always the best moves but hey she tries). She has a passion for process and welcomes challenges with open arms. Her favorite projects are those with multiple moving parts and ones she gets to play different roles in at different stages.

She holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Austin Peay State University and an MFA in Graphic Design program at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities.

Winter is her favorite and she loves a good glass of cabernet.
