Everything You Want to Know from a Legend…and Aren’t Afraid to Ask

The Lunch with a Legend series continues with this month’s legend, Jane Tilka. Don’t miss this rare chance to ask a leading Minnesota designer and business owner her thoughts on anything ranging from the creative process, to client relations, to hiring a new designer, to developing products, to… you name it.


Designer, consultant, and strategist, Jane Tilka sees opportunity where business and beauty intersect. Her firm, Tilka Design, guides local to national clients through a creative and strategic process that develops a brand’s potential. Not only that, Tilka Design has developed licensed retail products for numerous companies, including Jane’s co-founded nationally franchised Sox Appeal stores. Their work has been included in countless design books, magazines, and websites throughout the firm’s 30-year history. A graduate of The College of St. Catherine, Jane has mentored and trained many young designers to apply design thinking to organizational and business strategy. Jane has served on numerous local arts boards and is committed to involvement within her profession.
