Meet my son, Tater Tot



human design






I’m obsessed with sunsets, loud music, vibrant colors, pretty fonts, sketching until my hands cramp up, photographing pretty things, traveling the world, making up new recipes in my kitchen and yes, I share. I'm very curious, love learning new things, a great listener, secret keeper,  and love having deep conversations.

let's work together!

We'd be a great fit!

I've always been drawn to bright colors, font pairings, and anything I could put my personal touch on.

I got a kick-ass job at a creative marketing agency a few years back, but with little creative freedom, I had a gut feeling that there was MORE waiting for me in the design world. I followed my intuition and Amuse was born a month later in my living room. Best decision of my life thus far. Besides getting Tater Tot, of course. 

Hi, I'm Kara

[like a car]

"My dream in any collaboration is to feel as though I can channel my creative vision and have it lifted to its highest expression through the one I am collaborating with. Kara consistently taps into her own genius to bring through what I feel but cannot create myself. She is a wizard of design and has the biggest heart, which makes the process with her that much more fulfilling and fun. At Almost 30, we are constantly complimented on our design in every corner of what we do...we have Kara to thank!!"

"Working with Kara has been a dream—end stop. She seamlessly blends technical expertise with creative acumen, illuminating my words and innovating my brand. Kara is one of those rare collaborators whose skill and experience deliver not only an innovative final product, but whose (warm, kind, and wonderful) presence makes the entire process an absolute delight. As a result of working with Kara, I’ve seen a strong and concrete ROI—helping me drive more leads, secure more partnerships, and put my best foot forward to potential clients. I started working with Kara just a few months ago, and almost immediately, her design support completely transformed my presence in the digital space. Looking forward to more collaborations to come."

"I recently booked a Dedicated Day with Kara to design my new podcast cover art and assets. I was a little worried that we wouldn't have enough time to get through all the deliverables I wanted out of the day, but we ended up actually finishing with time to spare. Not only did Kara deliver a podcast cover art that I love, I also now have a whole bunch of design templates that I can use to promote each episode. The process was super fun, because we got to work together in real time, with Kara actioning my ideas and feedback immediately and then sending them through as we went. I would highly recommend her!"

"Working with Kara at Amuse design was wonderful. She’s an absolute gem of a person. Kara listens and understands the design needs of the project. She then communicates her needs effectively in regards to timeline and deliverables. She’s flexible when it comes to preferences on the clients behalf, and is willing to do what it takes to get the desired outcomes…without a single hint of negativity or frustration.

There are many designers out there, but not many that are so easy and enjoyable to work with."

“Working with Kara is a dream! She’s been doing all of my marketing designs for my business and I work with her specifically during big launches for my business. She nails it every single time. The color, the feel, the vibe, the design - all of it! I know I can hand it off to her and it will A) Get done in a timely fashion and B) Look exactly how I want. I’m so grateful to have her design eye and expertise to give me one less thing to worry about when it’s launch day!”
