Katie Lupton is a graphic designer whose work is a combination of print and product design with elements of participation. The end results are always a product of serendipitous collaboration between the designer and the audience. In her current studio practice, she creates projects using a combination of print, pattern, package and product design; incorporating multiple mediums: graphic design, screen printing, prototyping, and installation. Her work aims to investigate relationships between design constraints and parameters within systems. The tactile nature of the work is heavily influences by an interest in play and participation and how both can be incorporated into design solutions.
