About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Voted "Best of 2016" on LinkedIn Profinder service. I had a client tell me yesterday: "I describe your work as 'intellectual', you really think through every part of the brand design." I am pleased when people notice the attention to strategy and detail that I put into all my work. For example: your phone and address block should always be formatted the same way, in the same font, using the same spacing and separators. Consistency is important, and it gives an impression of professionalism.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love creating brands for clients that they love! When someone says "this brand feels like who I am," that's the highest compliment! I think most people want someone to really "get" what they're doing and who they are, and it's gratifying when someone can do that.

    Excellent work!
    Karin did an excellent job for me. She was very responsive and went beyond what I had expected. She took the time to review my existing presentation and made some great changes to create the consistency that was necessary for my company's colors and style. I would highly recommend her work.

    Karin worked with us to create a logo for our business. She listened to our ideas and came up with something so much better! She works quickly and was very responsive to our requests for changes. Karin is a true professional and artist. She really cared about making sure we were happy and gave us what we really needed to help brand our business. Thanks!!!

    Karin created the brand identity for my Pilates business, Recreate. She has a great understanding of what appeals to my mark. She created logos and graphics that were easy to implement across the board - from print to social networking. I would absolutely use her services for any future design needs.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
Brand makeovers, logo designs and redesigns, marketing materials, print collateral, websites, and advertising.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make certain you get an estimate and overview of the design process upfront – don't go by hourly rate alone. Sometimes a less experienced designer requires many more hours on a project, and can end up costing more in the long run. Predetermined deadlines and check-ins are crucial for a new client relationship – I want my clients to always be certain where they are in the design process and what's coming next.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Graphic design is both a technical skill and and art – it's not something just anyone who owns the tools can do. There is a lot of technical skill that goes into creating a finished design –“ whether print or web. I often get paid to fix things someone else has done for a bargain rate. It would be easier for client just to get the work done right the first time.
