ABOUT THE LADY / Tonja Larson
Hello! I'm Tonja, it’s nice to meet you. Nothing brings my heart more joy than using design for good. I started my career as an art director for Fortune 500 companies like 3M, Best Buy and Andersen Windows. Nearly thirty years later, I still can’t get enough of bringing brands to life through vibrant color, clean typography, and beautiful, well-balanced space.
Driven to use my creativity in new ways, I left my job as a full-time senior art director to start Lady with a Fan Design a decade ago. My goal was to offer the insights and skills of a creative agency with the openness and warmth of a small business.
I love immersing myself in my clients’ work every day. And I am grateful that our strong relationships have enabled Lady with a Fan Design to produce design solutions that truly resonate with the people our clients serve—from urban families to rural farmers.
I’m a proud resident of St. Paul, Minnesota. I live with my 4-legged partner in crime, Emmet, near the Minnesota State Capitol, the Cathedral of St. Paul and the brownstone where F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby. We love spending time in our neighborhood, hiking state parks, traveling, and enjoying family dinners (stinky chewys and local takeout) and playing unique board games with my two amazing kids.
