Hi. My name is Karen and I'm a freelance web designer helping businesses tell their story on the web. I like design of any kind. Working with digital layout for print, graphics design, web design, and WordPress is what I dig most.
And in a weird kinda way ... I like to troubleshoot too.

I create websites that are user friendly & functional

An under-performing and poorly designed website will harm your business more than it helps and that’s counter-productive for everyone.

  • An ineffective user interface causes
  • missed sales opportunities due to
  • poor functionality and that’s just not okay.

Your website should help your business grow while easing your efforts through creating new business opportunities via user engagement. Your website should help your business stabilize and succeed.

Is this you?

You have a small business. You know in your heart that you need to establish an online presence in combination with a user-friendly website but one of the following is holding you back:

  • You don’t know how to manage a website
  • You hate computers
  • You think the cost is outside your reach
  • Even emailing is hard for you and forget about password management

One of the most common things I see are the technophobes. People who fear the use of technology. But just a little bit of light in that darkness can remove that fear. If this is you … I have great tools and resources for you. If it’s not you, you’ll still dig the tools too.


So ask yourself:

  •  If not now, when?

Remember, if you don’t try you can’t fail but then the only thing you’ll have to lose at that point …
is more business.

Be brave. Do something.

What do you have to lose?

The answer is more business


This Is Why I Do What I Do ... It Makes My Soul Happy

Our firm has been working with Karen at Jackpine Design for a number of years and she has done tremendous work for us.

From design of our site to maintaining, support and changes with our business, we have always seen very professional and helpful service.

Peterson Juergensen Hemerick & Co would recommend services from Karen at JackPine Design unconditionally for any business.

Karen is truly a Jack of all trades, and I believe she master's them as well. She helped me get my footing during a difficult technology transition and it was during that experience that I learned of her other hidden talents. I'm truly thankful for her support.
