My services include design for print (logos, company & marketing collateral, branding strategies) and web design and light development. I also source printing services.

Why me?

People hire me for a variety of reasons.

  1. My design sensibility is very clean and simple. Less is more in my book.
  2. I give my clients what they want. Raspberry jelly doughnuts are not my cuppa tea, but if that’s what you want, that’s what I’ll put in your pink box.
  3. I’m nice, friendly, and a good listener. Seriously!
Some Client Testimonials
Kari is one of those stand-out people who are worth their weight in gold. I can't say enough good things about her--she's blazing fast, easy to work with, always produces first-rate results, and her fees seem trivial relative to her output. At Synaxis, she is our designated "go-to" resource for graphic design.
John Borozan
Synaxis Consulting
Kari is a rare breed for a graphic designer, combining a highly developed aesthetic sense with extreme professionalism and an ability to blend her creativity seamlessly into a business environment. Kari's work is elegant and original, and she is passionate about it, but she doesn't make her design the center of attention. Rather, she crafts her designs in a way that evokes the client's brand principles and strengthens the message it is trying to convey through the piece. Kari is a joy to work with and her designs are the perfect blend of style and substance - she gets my highest recommendation.

But I'm curious...

What’s with the name “Slimgim”?

“Slimgim” is a nickname I’ve had since my days at Mother Jones magazine.

No, I am not a meat stick.

The banana…?

The banana is Slimgim Designs’ mascot.
