about karen west

I've been designing and illustrating professionally since 2003 after graduating with a BFA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design. Give me a ring if you're looking for help with a new brand identity, sketches, illustration, print, mobile or web design. 

about the logo

The logo—created from a combination of the letter “k” and paint swashes—represents my design process. Sketching and illustrating can play an important, if not crucial, role in visual design.
