Katie Minning

Hi, I’m Katie!

Designing and making products for the home is my passion. With almost two years of experience working for companies such as Fossil, Loft llc, Target, Frontgate, and Ampersand, I’ve been able to get a little taste of it all. During my time at these companies, I was able to design product which is now sold on the market.

For my capstone, I am building my own brand based on the ideas of simplicity and happiness in nostalgia, and making a line of furniture, home goods, and accessories to showcase it.

Ever since I knew how, I’ve loved working with my hands. From arts and crafts as a kid to learning the ways of the wood lathe from my Dad, I’ve had a passion to make beautiful things that have a meaning. Now I’m able to make that a reality. Industrial Design opened my eyes to the possibilities of making products that people can own and love and pass on for generations.

I am a Cincinnatian born and raised, bowler, woodworker, cat lover, and expert sudoku solver.
