Karen’s Story

How it all began


In 1994, Karen did something unusual. She took a leave of absence from her graphic design job at a large corporation and spent a year in Georgia and North Carolina volunteering full-time with Habitat for Humanity.

During that experience, Karen discovered two things:
1) nonprofits need a reliable,
affordable partner for
creative communications, and
2) she really prefers working
with community-minded organizations.

So…she invented 501creative.
