The WCB has been very pleased to work with Karen of KBrown Design for the past 17 years. Karen consistently provides creative, professional and experienced graphic design services in relation to the WCB’s printed publications and various partnership projects. She makes a point to understand our business and each project’s overall goals to strike the appropriate design and tone for every piece.
Karen is an adept project manager, who always makes you feel like her Number One client. She is highly responsive, attentive to details, and is flexible and accommodating on project feedback. Karen’s creative influence on our annual report, newsletters, corporate brochures and a host of other deliverables, has been a key factor in our brand integrity. Recently, we asked her to help create a logo, templates and brand guidelines for a healthcare partnership project. The resulting designs have been enthusiastically received by the entire project team and are anticipated to contribute to the success of the program’s recognition.
Karen is a valued partner to the WCB, and an important contributor to our overall marketing and communications strategy and implementation. I am happy to recommend her services with great confidence.
Many designers bring a particular perspective to a project. Some are inspired quickly and see a solution right away from the first discussion, some are inspired by this but also step back, listen carefully to the strategy required and couples that with her own research on the subject to develop the creative concept and its execution – the latter is Karen’s approach and one that works best with our needs and our own philosophy.
She brings ideas to the table but isn’t afraid to rethink the creative solution based on new information or new findings as the research progresses. And the result for us and our clients is a stronger, more creative and thoughtful end product.
Congratulations to you on your work being recognized by “Applied Arts”, a real honour and wonderful acknowledgement to your abilities…
Since 2007, Karen has delivered high quality and creative work on six significant annual projects. This has included the design and consultation for production on a program catalogue, brochures, promotional and programming pieces. This requires adherence to brand yet a fresh design for each year. In addition, Karen has provided us design services for advertising campaigns for print, online and outdoor media campaigns.
Her work is of high quality and creativity. She delivers on all commitments within scope, timeline and budget.
Karen has the ability to think strategically in planning and launching a campaign and the attention to detail to deliver a coordinated and completed project.
Karen invests time to fully understand our needs. She’s a strong and clear communicator so we are confident that she will advise us appropriately on direction and effectiveness. The full combination of design skills and professionalism is why we have been so satisfied with the work Karen Brown has done for us. We would without hesitation recommend Karen Brown as a graphic designer.
Over the past three years I have worked with Karen on several design projects of varying lengths and complexity and have always been completely satisfied. Karen is a pleasure to work with, does an excellent job, and delivers projects on time.
Winning at AASCIF is no “little thing” to us. Thanks for all of your work on the Annual – now the top annual among North American boards.
Karen’s work is a pleasing blend of creativity and practical problem solving. The projects we have worked on together have commanded a varying range of design savvy and production commitment. Karen is very able on both fronts.
