About Karsten Press

A Creative Studio

Welcome, how nice to see you here!

My name is Keri and I am the owner and designer here at Karsten Press.  I offer business clarity & distinctive design services to organizations and small businesses looking to make a meaningful connection with their target audience.

Clear Vision & Brilliant Design

There is something quite wonderful about the power of a clear vision and beautiful design.  Brand clarity brings a defining sense of purpose, while environments & aesthetics impact the audience or learners capacity for connection.   I value clear vision & brilliant design because they have the power to change the way people view and value your brand, e-course or service offering.

Let’s work together to capture the elements that make your business unique and present it in the most honest and engaging way.

Are ready to discuss your next project?  Let’s talk here!

My Expertise

Web Design 100%


A brilliant website should reflect the elements that make your business unique and present them in the most honest and engaging way!  I believe your website can be both stylish (design aesthetics) & smart (systems & functionality)…allowing your customers to enjoy the experience of getting to know just what makes your brand so special.


 Whether you’re about to launch something new or reinvigorating an existing product line, you have an incredible opportunity to create something really special.  To achieve this, you need an experienced, visionary Art Director who can pull everything together.  I can art direct photoshoots for products and company campaigns, and can manage the image selection and editing process.


From retail, wholesale, to setting up shipping, or a subscription service,  there are so many options to sort through.  I have 12 years of experience as a design consultant, helping businesses determine (and set up) the right e-commerce solution.

Designing a blog on your own? Start Here


If you are looking to start a blog or website on your own, here is a list of products, tools + services I use that I hope will be helpful as you get started!

Domains + Hosting

Dreamhost is my go-to for domains and hosting.  A WordPress hosting plan includes easy setup, automated updates and backups, and 24/7 WordPress support (which I have used a ton!). And Dreamhost is very affordable!

Wordpress Themes

I have tried everything from page builders to fancy themes and I have had the most success (and least amount of hassle) using the Genesis Framework and Themes.  I own every single one of these themes and love the ease and functionality of them. For more feminine styled themes, check out Restored 316.

Style Customization

I’ve recently discovered Design Palette Pro which allows you to change the look of your site without writing a single line of code!  (NOTE:  This only works with Genesis Child Themes.)

All-in-one Platforms

Platforms like Kajai and Rainmaker have everything you need to grow your business in one place. You can easily build a website, sell products, offer online classes, and build a community from a single dashboard. And since everything is built together, it just works together..better!
