Karie started out in my department as an ad courier and worked hard to learn the skills needed to become a graphic designer. Her natural creative talent was complemented by her solid knowledge of Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator (as well as Quark Xpress) and she wound up being my best designer. Her encounters with our customers were always professional. She listened carefully to their needs and matched their vision 99.9% of the time. You won't regret adding Karie to your team.

There are a lot of Web Designers and Graphic Artists out there today. I will tell you however, there are very few that come close at providing the quality of work Karie does. Her work is professional, modern, detailed, creative, timely and top notch. I can’t say enough to relay how lucky I feel to have found her years ago to work with my company- she makes us look good and keeps my clients very happy.

- Ronni Council,  CEO at Organized Karma & Alchemy Nevada, Las Vegas, NV

My company just launched our new website and couldn't be any happier with the way the site turned out, and our experience with Karie Banks Graphics and Web Design. When I first made contact with Karie, I was taken with the ‘can-do’ attitude towards our entire project (a start-up nonprofit), and her willingness to meet our needs – both creative and budgetary! Karie was easy to work with, responsive, thorough and extremely helpful. I was impressed all around with Karie’s skills, customer service and attention to detail every step of the way. The end result was a website that looks great.

Karie is a very personable professional who wants as many details as possible in order to deliver the right product. I found my experiences with Karie to be fun rather than work. She is a brilliant graphic designer and her creativity goes well beyond any bounds I have ever seen.

- Stefanie Rice, Seattle, WA

Karie was a graphic designer at the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin newspaper in the early 2000's. I worked with Karie for several years. My interaction with Karie as Senior Marketing Consultant was to convey to her what the client wanted the newspaper, magazine or digital ad to look like or sometimes even explain to her that the creative had to have a certain feel to it. Karie was very good at listening & coming up with creative ideas in a timely manner (Newspapers are very deadline focused). She was usually the quickest of that group, most creative and she responded well to pressure with on the fly changes. I really respected her abilities as a designer and her thought process.
I would recommend Karie if you want creative, efficient and a personal touch to your projects.

- Jeff Sasser, Senior Marketing Consultant, Walla Walla Union-Bulletin

We use Karie to do our logos and other artwork for us and have been extremely happy and continue to use her.

Karie is a savvy designer with a strong orientation towards her client needs. She is quick to respond, concise in her communication, and over-delivers. Her attention to detail and style is impeccable. She is a benchmark for hard work, ethical beyond reproach, an example of talent meeting passion.

- Robert Nathanson, Chief Enthusiast at 3G Spirits, Portland, OR

Karie is a very detailed person, even when working within time constraints. I had the opportunity to work with Karie for 8-9 years at a daily newspaper, her work in graphic arts was on time and of a great caliber. Karie has a fantastic outgoing personality, and can work with anyone.

Karie Banks has done a couple freelance projects for me and has done a great job. She completes tasks in a timely manner and is very professional in her work. I love knowing that if I get in a bind I can count on Karie to back me up and do a good job.

As a business owner for many years it was time to refresh my company in so many areas. One of those being a new logo and new business cards and material to leave at a clients home. I was referred to Karie by JC Barrier Group, LLC.  Karie and I met for coffee and with just a short conversation of what I was wanting, we parted ways and within a couple days she had something put together for me. I was blown away with my new Logo and how my  new cards would look.  I approved it and within 10 days received my new cards  they are double sided I get compliments on them all the time. Going forward any material I need for my business will go to Karie I know she will do it right and will know just what my thoughts are.  If you are in need of any material or something new like a logo etc. etc. don't hesitate you will be very happy you did.

- Steve Lenz, Design Services Manager, Walla Walla Union-Bulletin, Walla Walla, WA

We worked with Karie in the early stages of our company. We needed Karie to visually portray our company's vision and message in our logo. It was nice that we gave Karie a summary of our vision and she delivered what we wanted within days. Karie comes highly recommended from us and we look forward to working with her next.

- Mel Stennent, Senior Consultant at Guidacent Inc., MBA, SCM, Product and Program Management

We worked with Karie to design a brochure and menu for our new business. The results were awesome! Not only did Karie design a beautiful brochure, she was super patient through numerous change requests and rewrites. Karie is talented, patient and great to work with!

Karie does it right the first time, every time! She has great imagination. I couldn't be happier with the results

- Pat Roberts, President at The Roberts Company, Great Seattle Area, WA

I can't say enough how amazing Karie Banks Wellsandt is at what she does! Every project I have taken to Karie she has more than exceeded my expectations! This woman has so much design talent & puts her soul into every job! We entrusted her with our livelihood, the task of creating a logo design & slogan for our small business, and she rocked it! We also tasked her with full creative control of the funeral announcements when my mother passed and she created something so beautiful that I cried, as I never imagined they would be so perfect!! I was not an easy client, as I kept sending changes- LOTS of changes and it didn't phase her a bit. To top off her amazing talent and customer service, she has a fantastic personality and for me that makes a huge difference! I highly recommend Karie with all of your graphic design needs! I personally give her work 5 stars, a 10 out of 10.

- Afton Journey-Towslee, Stacey & Son Landscaping LLC, College Place, WA
