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!

GRAPHIC DESIGN

I use strong conceptualization and design skills to create beautiful brand identities, presentations (PPT and Google Slides) and marketing collateral that will connect with your target market and present your business in the most authentic way.

BRAND CLARITY & STRATEGY

Knowing precisely who you are with clarity and confidence paves the way for meaningful connection.  Take a moment and ask yourself…what’s your vision for your business? Whether you’re about to launch something new or reinvigorating an existing company, you have an incredible opportunity to create something really special.  To achieve this, you need an experienced, visionary Creative Director who can pull everything together into a clear brand with a thoughtful brand strategy.

WEB DESIGN

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.

Resources

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.)

Email Marketing Software

I started out using Mailchimp which is free up to 500 users.  I then switched to Emma which is incredibly robust.  Marketing automation can be hard to wrap your brain around but Emma makes it incredibly easy (and fun) to do!
