Inspired by her grandmother—a brilliant, bold, and often outlandish artist—Ali Macdonald founded LARK+RAVEN in 2014 to showcase designs that gleefully toe the line between cheeky and chic. Her bright, one-of-a-kind patterns and characters are featured on a number of products ranging from paper goods to pillows. Like the cheery morning lark and the mischievous raven, these beautiful prints aren’t always what they seem.

Prior to creating her own bold and bright world with Sharpies, Ali got her start in the industry as a designer for Jonathan Adler. It was there that she gained experience working on products ranging from greeting cards for Paperless Post to graphics for company pillows and packaging.
