Good design begins and ends with the laws of nature, but that doesn't stop a good designer from stretching to touch the divine.

Honesty in design is a reflection of the divine. Honest design is about presenting your genuine self in a way that is meaningful to your target audience.
Here's the hard truth – your audience is a judgmental lot. To these potential customers, the visual representation of your business is a direct reflection on the quality of your offering. You work hard to provide something valuable to the world and people are looking for you. I have the skills to let your audience know you're worth their time. Let's join forces to communicate the value you bring.

Karen has a unique ability to lean in to a project and do whatever it takes to get it done amidst the most challenging of constraints. I'd recommend her not only as a great designer, but as a valued partner in making the visual identity of an project, program, or product resonate with the audience and accomplish the goals set before the team.

I've worked with Karen for about a decade, and she consistently delivers excellence. She is a powerful storyteller, motivated, and deeply thoughtful in all her work. Recently, I've hired her to handle a very large scale project, and she's been timely, efficient and highly effective. I never worry when I work with Karen, everything that I've gotten back from her is fantastic. Highly recommend working with her.

Working with Karen has been an absolute breeze. Karen arrives at each meeting with everything she needs, she responds to emails promptly, and she has gone above and beyond to get changes made on time. The best part about working with Karen is her expertise. I have full confidence in every piece of work she creates.
