Hey hey! I’m Karima. (Carrie-muh)
I’m a graphic + web designer living in Raleigh, NC but working with clients all over the world. I left my 9-5 as a Director of Marketing only months after starting my own business to live out my dream, and now I work with other kick ass entrepreneurs to help them create or elevate their brands so they can live their dream, too.
This whole entrepreneurship thing can get really hard, am I rightttt? I’m all about making things easy, and making my process with my clients fun. You won’t get emails from me that say things like “best regards” or “I hope this finds you well” - stuffy and boring isn’t my style. Rather, things like “yay yay!” or “chat soon xo” - because at the end of the day, I think our business should reflect our personalities.
Going off that… so should our brands and websites, right? The visual identity of our brand should in someway or another reflect us- just because someone in your industry is doing something someway doesn’t mean you need to, too. I mean guys… think about how painfully ugly the world would be if every single fast food restaurant decided to use red + yellow as their brand colors because McDonalds did and they were successful. Yikes.
ANYWAY, a little bit about my style. I believe in simplicity and that less = more. I love black + white and minimalism with the concessional and appropriate pop of color. I design based on user-experience and your target audience and how they will perceive things as well as making sure it’s reflective and authentic and true to YOU.
