Karen started Karen Spencer Design, Inc. 28 years ago in her basement with a Visa card and a joy in her work that was unstoppable. Her level of confidence both in her services and her unwavering vision of the firm she wanted to create made her persevere, no matter what the circumstance.
When an opportunity allowed her to open a small office in Armonk in 1989, she seized it. Taking on the roles of company president, lead graphic designer, production manager, salesperson, receptionist and cleaning crew, Karen grew the business into an award winning 8-person creative services firm. Over the years the firm has worked with such prestigious clients such as Pfizer, Astra Zeneca, McNeil, The Neuberger Museum of Art, Westchester Community College, The New York Blood Center, Oxford Health Plans, Sprint, IBM and Xerox Corporation.
Under Karen’s nurturance, KSD became and continues to be an environment where both design excellence and the respect for ideas are encouraged in all endeavors. The firm’s environment is one where all employees feel respected, valued, and are encouraged to offer their individual ideas as important, viable contributions to the creative effort. Consistent award-winners, KSD has garnered more than 50 local and international design awards in the last few years alone.
Karen’s belief in professional excellence and an enjoyable working atmosphere is evident in the effort she invests in both her client’s projects and in her associates’ continuing education and working environment. Her commitment to providing the high-end, hard working design solutions in the projects her firm delivers and developing lasting client and associate relationships place Karen and her firm above the crowd.
Karen’s latest endeavor, the Spencer Creative Group is an extension of Karen Spencer Design and specializes in the delivery of creative marketing solutions for digital & traditional media, including mobile apps and social media marketing and networking.
