A b o u t    M e

Hello, and welcome to my website! 

My name is Maggie Laughner, and I am a Wisconsin native who craves beautiful type, bold design, and of course, cheese (did I mention that I'm from Wisconsin?)

I've been fortunate enough to work with some amazing local businesses to create menus, logos, and other designs to bring their visions into being. I love my Mac, but hand lettering holds a special place in my heart, as does the tactile experience of working with wood type on a letterpress. As such, many of my projects incorporate a range of materials and skills, from the digital to the physical.

View my resume here.


While design is my life, here are some other incredibly important facts about me:

  • I had a perm for the last 2.5 years of my life, and it can be visualized as the most poodle-like ball of hair that you can imagine. I've just decided to grow my hair longer (much to the relief of my grandma).
  • I'll rarely turn down the purchase of a vintage crate, box, or carton (but then again, who could?)
  • I've been called a 'real-life elf' by friends due to my endless craving for candy. It's by far one of my greatest weaknesses, alongside spontaneous trips to any thrift store I happen to cross.
  • Nearly half the people I meet have told me that they also have a canine Maggie in their life. Usually a golden retriever. If you are one of these people, let me know! I love meeting a fellow Maggie, and I'm especially fond of dogs.

I hope you enjoy looking through my work, and if you have any questions, feel free to send me an email!
