Who’s Teaching Me?
I’m Karli. A scrappy kid at heart, I have always been on the search for the creative idea that would “make it” for my career. I developed my first brand and business while studying graphic design in college in Austin. It gave me experience with full creative process I wasn’t getting in class. It also introduced me to all the tiny decisions business owners make, like how to register your business, how to pay taxes, how to manage projects with no boss to hold you accountable, and more.
I never stopped loving the independence and results-driven nature of being my own business, but my bank account called, so I logged some years in the corporate world. For nearly a decade I was part of Kerbey Lane Cafe, moving from Marketing Assistant to Creative Director. While there I took the brand from Hippies you can smell to Hippies you can trust with your credit card. By connecting the purpose of the brand to the strategy of the business, we were able to keep our heart even as we transformed our menus, the look of our locations, the dress code, and the feel you get when you walk in the door. Also, I got to design packaging sold at HEB, which is the definition of making it.
Back on my own at KarliDesigns, my purpose is not only creating with mission-driven clients, but also applying some shine theory to the creative community. I’m ready to drag all y’all freelancers into the Executive Suite with me!
