What Our Clients Say About Working With Us

"Before working with StoryMap Marketing, we didn’t have a clear-cut strategy for our business and marketing goals, and StoryMap Marketing helped us realize the value of strategy, smart marketing plan and value of ROI. Karen helped True North Companies articulate our ‘brand voice’ and better identify who our audience is. Karen has become an invaluable partner for our company in creating brand awareness and being instrumental in generating new business."

Joseph

True North Companies, Development, Construction and Investments

"Aside from simply being a joy to work with, Karen possesses Destination Marketing expertise that knows no bounds. We gave Karen the herculean task of overhauling our brand top to bottom– not an easy task by any stretch of the imagination – and she rose to the occasion with sheer creativity, infinite wisdom, remarkable grace and almost-supernatural patience. Karen is the kind of partner where, if you finish a project together, you begin to look for additional reasons to engage with her further!"

Antoine

Zemi Beach House, Luxury Boutique Hotel

"Karen has been instrumental in guiding us through the current challenges facing our industry. Her wisdom, strategy and thoughtfulness have directed us as we mapped the story of our business to be used in our new marketing plan. Her sincere dedication to her clients and to her craft, along with her immense expertise solidifies her as a leader in the marketing world. She is simply a joy to work with, and has truly transformed our marketing strategy."

Brooks Clay + Lawrence Wolfberg

Mark Design Agency

"As members of the senior leadership team for the World of Coca-Cola for more than 10 years, Karen and I worked hand-in-hand to develop the creative content and consumer experiences that attracted over 12 million visitors during that time. Karen's creative instincts, along with her natural gifts for storytelling and artistic direction made her an indispensable collaborator to me and my Experiential Design team." 

Craig Lovin, Director, Experiential Design + Development

The World of Coca-Cola

"Our experience with Karen at StoryMap Marketing has been nothing short of amazing. From the first conversation we could tell right away Karen was very experienced in branding and marketing. She took the time to learn about our company, people and culture that created the foundation of our new Brand Story. She was able to put in to words the feeling we get when we talk about who we are and how we help our clients. We will continue with her expertise to streamline our messaging and branding. Thank you Karen!"
