We help creative businesses find the sweet spot between strategy and design so they can sell more.


Hi, I’m Kari :)

I’m the designer and dreamer around here. I love helping small business owners like you make a living doing what you love. Because the world needs more happy people!

I began my own journey writing product descriptions and curating collections for e-commerce giants and consulting on B2B websites. But being an artist myself, I wanted to work more closely with other makers in a more creative way. I took my years of practical knowledge and combined it with a love for design.

That’s how I began Make.Be, a colorful studio where I create branding, websites, and illustrations to help unique brands stand out and sell more. I also share my love for nature, pretty colors, and happy things through prints, patterns, and packaging design.

You can get in touch with me here about working together, or find me around the web at the links below.

Thanks for stopping by!
