Libby Hampel is the surface pattern designer of Monark’s sharp, sophisticated patterns. Libby loves the challenge of a complicated repeat, building color palettes, and creating coordinate sheets.

Pattern has been a constant part of Libby’s life. Drawing doodles in the margins of classroom notes, making patterns with Perler beads, creating abstract drawings using free hand, stencils, rulers, or a spirograph set; creating repeat patterns using silk screen printing, creating knit and woven patterns, are the many ways patterns have filled her life.

Libby’s road of life has had many fabulous turns, including selling and marketing her beaded, paper, and laser cut jewelry, graphic design, web design, and working for Apple, Inc.

When Libby isn’t killing it with Monark you’ll find her recipe hunting, cooking, getting sucked in to Instagram and Pinterest, lifting heavy things, and drinking espresso beverages. She currently resides in Columbia, MO with her architecture professor husband. MIZ-ZOU!
