Karen Theilacker Design

About Me

I am a freelance graphic designer located in Summerville, South Carolina with a roster of clients - both nonprofit and for-profit organizations - throughout the United States. I have degrees from both the University of California at Santa Barbara and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

Areas of expertise include the design of brochures and newsletters; logos and corporate identity; direct mail and email marketing campaigns; and web design. My creative input has helped increase sales of such diverse products as fire doors and symphony tickets.

"I believe that a distinctive representation of a client’s product – in which good design principals play a supporting role – is the most effective form of communication."



Choosing a freelance designer ensures personal attention to every phase of the project, resulting in a well thought out and skillfully crafted visualization of your unique marketing goals. Jobs are quoted individually based on your budget and your needs.

To learn more or to discuss your project please send me an email.
