We create artwork that honors the architecture and history of places worth preserving, with a special love for Chicago. We help our clients honor cherished homes, buildings, neighborhoods, cities; and we partner with organizations with similar missions.

Based along the Ravenswood corridor, Wonder City Studio was founded by Katie Lauffenburger and Phil Thompson.

We sell through a variety of great retail partners. You can find us at shows like the One of a Kind Show, Renegade Craft Fair, and the Ravenswood Artwalk, among others. You might have seen our work displayed at the Chicago Architecture Center, the Field Museum, or on screen in "The Big Sick" and Netflix's "Easy." 

Our work has been shown on ArchDaily, Apartment Therapy, Block Club Chicago, Chicago Tribune, Chicagoist, Curbed Chicago, Modern Luxury Interiors, Thrillist, Washington Post, and WGN News, among others.
