Meg Mateo Ilasco is a designer, writer, and illustrator based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She was in grad school when she started designing wedding invitations for extra money. Eventually her company became a full-time job, expanded into stationery and accessories, and was featured on NBC's Today and in The Knot. Meg has since sold that business and has launched an eponymous housewares and gift company, Mateo Ilasco. She recently debuted a home office line called Utile that has sold well at See Jane Work, SFMOMA, Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, Fred Flare, Curiosity Shoppe, and elsewhere.
