ABOUT /
KARLA MARTIN

 
 

Hi there. I’m an art director / graphic designer passionate about innovation and creating positive change.

I first fell in love with layout and typography using PageMaker on my middle school yearbook staff. The profound power of design would later become a powerful force in my life while studying WWII propaganda abroad. Today, I work to harness my passion for design to help create a world that is a better place and connect people with the things that are important to them.

I’m a versatile commercial artist with experience designing for diverse audiences across many industries. Throughout the years, I’ve enjoyed working in different environments — from nightclubs to corporate offices, and from 2-person operations to large international and remote teams. I love challenges that involve big-picture ideation and I’m also a keen, pixel-perfect designer. I call myself a designer, but you can always count on me to have input on copy.

Best of all, I have an 8-year-old little girl who is my best friend. I enjoy feeding her curiosity and the joy she brings to the world. I also have an array of pets and am an animal-lover in general. My favorite pastime is traveling and, lately, working on a custom camper van conversion. Check out the Camper Chronicles page for insights into this journey.
