That vision in your head?

I can make it real.

I’m Kara Hoganson. 

I’m a St. Louis-based creative soul fueled by sarcasm, wanderlust and good design. But mostly carbs. It’s usually here when people advertise if they are coffee/caffeine obsessed, and I feel compelled to let you know that I am not one of those people. I do however have a strong appetite for travel, board games, museums, and advocating for work-life/screen-free balance.



How you spend your free time says a lot about you.

I spend mine creating.

So easy to butcher,
so powerful when done right.

Design is my lifeforce. The second I realized it, I gave up the mermaid dream (at least publicly) and knew exactly what I wanted to do ‘when I grew up’.

Pictures are portals to moments we once shared.

I live to capture moments so you can cherish them forever.
The more candid the better.

Hand Lettering–––
& Illustration

A personal touch can work wonders.

The feeling people experience when something is hand-crafted just for them? Priceless.
