Karen | Communications Director

Karen K.

Chief Communications Officer
It’s critical to your success working with a company to find the people inside those companies that can make things happen when you need something, who know the answer to every question you could think to ask, and who have your back when things go sideways. In her role as Chief Communications Officer, Karen is that person. She brings a wealth of knowledge from her long career in graphic design, photography and digital marketing. On your project she will be one of your main points of contact throughout the campaign, providing you with consistent project status reports and making sure all expectations are clear and met during the life cycle of the project thus ensuring all projects are delivered flawlessly, on time, and within the resources available.
Kevin | Media Buying Director

Kevin M.

Media Buying Director
As one of your initial introductions to the Marstudio team, Kevin takes the time to learn about your organizational business model, challenges, aspirations, target audience, constraints and over all objectives. Establishing rapport and confidence is the cornerstone of Kevin’s approach, which he’s honed over 20 years within the graphic arts community. His passion for the graphic arts began right out of college as he began a journey through fine paper distribution, commercial printing and ultimately where it all begins—Strategic Branding & Creative Marketing Design. His affinity for problem solving, communications, psychology, wordsmithing and technology makes for a perfect combination in assessing client’s needs. With Kevin, you’ll know that your input is understood at a granular level—you’ll know that, with Marstudio, you came to the right place.
