Our Process

Karen Marren Design follows a three-step process even before applying pen to paper or mouse to screen. We analyze, design and communicate. This process of creative thinking allows us to deliver strategic solutions achieving the client’s goals across all print and digital platforms.



Great design starts with understanding your business, knowing your brand, and integrating your strategies and goals.

At Karen Marren Design we start by talking to you, asking you questions, and figuring out what you really need in terms of design. Only after we do this analysis do we move on to suggesting brilliant ideas!



Compelling design is when color, contrast, balance, and space come together to tell a story without words. We do compelling design.

Design takes an eye and experience, both of which we have at Karen Marren Designs. With over 25 years of design work behind us, we have the skills and know how to create compelling, beautiful graphic design across industries ranging from entertainment properties to financial institutions.



Good design is more than pretty pictures – good design is good communication.

From your logo to web design to your corporate reports, graphics and design are critical to your overall communications strategy. At Karen Marren Design we understand that design must first communicate and tell a story, then it must also look great.
