Meet the team.

Katie McLaughlin

Founder + Creative Director

Katie’s passion is community.

She received her Masters in Urban Planning with a concentration in Urban Design from the University of Pennsylvania. Since then, she worked as a planner in Chicago and St. Louis.

Now, with Locality Studio, Katie enjoys working with similar community-driven clients to ignite their creativity. After starting Locality Studio in 2017 (as an Etsy shop!), she has worked with a multitude of clients to bring their designs to life.


Locality Studio is made up of a pool of contractors, ready to collaborate for creative projects of all types.

We’ve got everyone from urban planners to illustrators to web developers at your service.
