Welcome! Right This Way...


My name is Claire, and my mission is to share my vision for a more colorful, wild world with millions of people. I am a surface pattern designer, illustrator, trail runner, professional trip-planner, and mountain dreamer. Based out of Chicago, I have designed adventure programs in over 30 countries around the world. I have also created designs for breweries, lodges, tourism organizations, and fashion lines across the globe. Former clients of mine have included Brooklyn Boulders and Sh*t that I Knit.

I seek inspiration, balance, and sunshine for a life well-lived and aspire to use my designs to protect our alpine environments and wild spaces. I’m an avid trail runner and have completed 2 Ultras, a 30k at Ultrafiord in Chile, and 18 half marathons.  I am stoked you are reading this and would love to connect (for an adventure, a project, or design license!) Just fill out the form below to say hi! 

How Can I Support Claire Kalina Designs? Whether you want to purchase some fabric, a sticker, or simply give me a heart on instagram, every touch point for my business makes me do a little happy dance. Seriously! At the moment, I’m not able to mass produce my stuff, so I rely on awesome companies like Redbubble and Spoonflower to do my manufacturing. I’ve personally tested the products and have gotten great reviews on them. If you have questions, you can always ask. If you’re looking to deck out your laptop or water bottle with some stickers click here! And if you’re seeking some fabric, wallpaper, or wrapping paper click here.
