Hi there
I'm Keith.

Charlotte Graphic Web Designer Keith Karr

My natural curiosity and creative drive have allowed me to “knock the ball out of the park” more often than not.
My first job out of art school — an intense deadline-driven  position with a high volume commercial printer — taught me the business from the ground up, strongly augmenting everything I learned at one of the top art schools in the country.

For two decades I’ve  been a “first choice” creative resource for some of the most demanding clients imaginable (see list below) Often under pressure, I have created innovative, high impact creative and design solutions  for clients ranging from Fortune 500 giants to promising one-person startups. In every case my work is custom-built  to solve the problem you present me with, on-time and on-budget.

Clients included: Nestle, Clorox, Coke, Kraft Heinz, Arthur Anderson, Carter Cosgrove, Discovery Channel, Global Link Inc., Kircher and Associates, Morris Beecher, National Geographic, Health Care Advisory Board, On Target Media Group, Omni Digital, Price Waterhouse, Albrecht Publication Services, APICS — The Educational Society for Resource Management, Widmeyer Baker Group, Wonder Media, and Watson Wyatt Worldwide.

I am responsible for creating visually engaging and innovative web-based and mobile products. I understand that visuals not only bring concepts to life, cultivate bonds between customers and brands, but visuals also engage human response. I know the power of imagery and wield it appropriately.

I have crafted graphic elements, assets and visual treatments that are adaptive and are responsive. I understand branding standards and design systems and how they apply to user centric products. I always strive to maintain a creative flair, up-to-date knowledge of industry software and keep a professional approach to time, costs and deliverables.

I have learned to seek and solve design challenges through using creative and innovative solutions. I have always maintained an empathetic viewpoint and treat every deliverable as if it were my own. Clients include, but not limited to: Charlotte Observer, Chadwick Investment, Acuity Technologies, Thorlo’s, Antioxidant Farms, Pilot Media Magazine, Volt Energy Drinks, Dream Garden Beverages, Souls of Brooklyn, Peter Ponzol, JL Smith, Summit Beverage Group, Weichert Realty, Copycat Printing and Chadwick Investments.

Design is the product.

Now I have ambitions to seek a Masters Degree in Human and Computer Interaction. I have recently completed post graduate certifications in UX/UI. The more I uncover, the more I want to discover.

So my journey map continues. I am a creative problem solver at heart with 25+ years of design experience. I have always focused on good design, but now I want to know why it works.
