Hi there! My name is Mariah Liisa, and I’m a graphic designer with soul (No, really, I drive a Kia Soul!).


I am passionate about design, branding, and visual aesthetics.

Here at Mariah Liisa Design LLC, I work as a freelance graphic designer. I love to work with small businesses, entrepreneurs, start ups, and creatives to develop and maintain a strong brand identity and visual presence. Located in the beautiful city of Madison, Wisconsin, I work with many local businesses and self employed folks.

In 2012 I proudly earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, majoring in Illustration and minoring in Graphic Design. I have worked as an in-house graphic designer, started my own design business, been featured in several local art shows, and am familiar with Madison’s community of freelancers.
