Her corporation's artwork features rainbow and neon colors and stylized depictions of animals, including dolphins, pandas, and unicorns. In the 1980s and 1990s, her products – including school supplies such as lunchboxes and Trapper Keepers, as well as toys and stickers[3] – were popular among elementary and middle school-aged girls.[4]

In 2017, Entertainment Weekly reported that the designer was partnering with producer Jon Shestack to develop a movie inspired by her work.[7]

She is an alumna of the Kingswood School (today: Cranbrook Kingswood School),[10] a preparatory school in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.[11]

Her father was an art collector and introduced her to the work of Pop Art artists like Peter Max.[12]

In 2005 Lisa Frank divorced James Green, the CEO and co-share holder of Lisa Frank Incorporated. The court agreed to assign control of the company to Lisa Frank.[13]
