Karten Design provides product innovation for leading companies by Connecting Creativity to Commerce™. For 28 years, we have been creating positive experiences between people and products, helping our clients to build brands and increase revenue.
Karten Design comprises a talented group of 25 designers, researchers, and engineers. We can deliver everything from strategy to implementation, but our size allows us to also provide a high level of personal service and impeccable quality.
We believe that good design responds intelligently to the needs of end users, both spoken and unspoken. Our research inspires products that resonate with end users and reflect an empathetic understanding of their often unarticulated needs and desires. Whether defining a product or driving innovation, we dig deep to identify behaviors and ceremonies that will shape the way people interact with products.
We believe that design should make people’s lives and the world better. At Karten Design, we seek to reach people through positive emotions and responsible designs. We do this by challenging parameters and assumptions to discover unmet needs and develop life-changing solutions.
We believe that creativity is the key to market leadership. We use design thinking to build strong identities and develop first-to-market innovations. Our clients achieve measurable business results such as increased customer loyalty, improved brand positioning and expanded market share.
