Welcome to Karin Anderson Creative Consulting. I provide graphic design and creative services for a broad range of projects — everything from full-scale children's book direction to marketing materials and web design.
Who I Am
I have more than two decades of experience providing individuals, news outlets and businesses with a wide range of photography, graphic design, and content creation services.
Since 2015, I've had the privilege of working with author Elizabeth Rusch on four non-fiction children's books. I photographed the first title (Impact! Asteroids and the Science of Saving the World), which received the prestigious Subaru Prize for Excellence in Science Books. For the other three books, I played the role of visual strategist/creative consultant.
Photo industry awards are from the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) & Pictures of the Year (POY) national competitions, White House News Photographers Association, Society of News Design, Associated Press, and World Press Photo.
Select clients and employers have included The New York Times, PBS, CNN, Washington Post, Associated Press, Copley Newspapers, San Francisco Chronicle, Detroit Free Press, JL Yates Services LLC, Reuters, Bianca Broos Company, Las Vegas Sun, Science Museum of Virginia, Resonance Aesthetics & Wellness, Orin Swift Cellars, Redeemer Santa Rosa, WASCo, Secure Identity Systems, JLL, and Acme Development.
In my spare time I like to pretend I'm a recipe developer or a poet, and lately I've been doing a lot of tent camping with my dachshund, who isn't as enamored with it as I am.
Design is an extension of your identity. Your marketing materials need to feel like you - your colors, your vibe, your values. My holistic approach to design is unique because of my multidiscipline creative background.
Your visual elements need to clearly communicate the mood and message of your brand or project. They are your client's first and lasting impression. I lend my award-winning experience to making your visuals work.
Your key communication pieces need to be
easy to understand and precise. If they are not, your potential client will stop reading
and go elsewhere. I make sure your
content is short, clear, and effective.
