Mary Kate VenturiniGraphic Design Lead, Radio Flyer
Mary Kate has been a graphic designer at Radio Flyer since 2009. She loves designing for such a timeless, beloved and meaningful brand—especially one she remembers fondly from childhood. Mary Kate always prefers to be outside, even if that means cramming onto her tiny apartment porch with a book or a few friends.
Favorite outdoor activity:
Taking long walks while exploring cities. I love to do this in new, exciting places and also my hometown. Some of my favorite Chicago city moments happened when my roommate and I missed the bus—we walked a few miles instead!
Favorite outdoor escape:
The beach. Any beach works, but if given the choice, North Carolina is my top pick
Favorite outdoor game as a kid:
Coloring with chalk.
Favorite activity to do with your family:
Long family dinners with my parents, sisters (I have 4!) and my husband. Now that my sisters and I are off doing different things, it is a treat when we can all be together.
What makes you smile:
Smart color combinations, oversized or tiny versions of desk supplies, really sharp pencils, and fresh flowers.
Favorite Radio Flyer Product and why:
The Town and Country Wagon. One summer during grade school I used hula-hoops and a sheet to turn my Radio Flyer into a pioneer-style covered wagon. My sisters and I crossed the prairie (backyard) all summer long!
Favorite sports teams:
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
