Jen Bilik, the founder of design company Knock Knock, shows her line of stationery that puts the fun into functional. She talks about how her desire to write and design led to a concept-driven, thriving business that integrates both art and commerce.

Bilik reveals her early design influences and discusses how her inadequacies resonated with customers, allowing her to create a business united by sensibility.

I totally fancied myself an artiste. To me, a businessperson was a man in a really bad polyester suit, reading "Who Moved My Cheese" at the airport, says Bilik.

Showing why her products are both funny and insightful, Jen Bilik also boasts that Jennifer Aniston once appeared live on television with a Knock Knock self-inking stamp emblazoned on her naked torso.
