I came onto this planet filled with innate grand intentions of how I could contribute in inspiring others to be more aware, more loving and less segregated in feeling, thought, and action. Studio Kerr was born in my in my last year of graphic design school in 2004.
The consistent (and original) vision for Studio Kerr is always to see, honor and express the uniqueness of each and every client through their graphics and marketing materials in the highest frequency possible. I created Studio Kerr so that I would always have the freedom to do business in full transparency and create in alignment with my highest standards.
Every client we work with is special to me.
Our clients are people that are passionate about the work they have chosen and are truly contributing positively to the world with the business they are pursuing.
I’m going to spare you of the design and marketing jargon that is essentially meaningless. What is meaningful is I have a great gift in creating visual communication. I implement knowledge of the design field that only years of experience can teach. I care as much about the way the visuals look/perform as I care about my clients' success. My clients' goals are my priority.
I am the one picking up the phone. I am the one making sure it is delivered exactly as you envisioned it. I am the one that wakes up in the middle of the night with the next great inspiration for your project.
After over 15 years in Kaua'i, Studio Kerr is now based in the Sedona/Flagstaff, AZ area. Studio Kerr is fluent in working with clients both locally and remotely.
Kirsten Klaus: founder/creative director/visual communicator

Let me get through the perfunctories…I got my fancy piece of paper (BS in Graphic Design), with honors, from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh back in 2004. However, just like anything, it is the practicing, the loving, and the honing of a craft that is most important. Between my own design studio (Studio Kerr), working for well-established marketing/design companies, and designing for the largest real estate marketing firm in Hawai'i, I have had the opportunity to create for a huge array of clients and their varied projects… indoors to outdoors…huge to tiny…traditional and so not so…
No matter what I am doing or with whom I am working, Studio Kerr has always been involved.
I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to live a creative and diverse life with art and design as my foundation. Everything I do/have done out of the office makes the work I do in the office more creative and vibrant.…traveling, painting abstract expressionism, organic/permaculture gardening, meditating, spending vast amounts of time outside, studying plant medicine…to name a few.
I constantly and mindfully create a joyful, inspired, and peaceful life for myself and I feel that contributes beyond words to the quality of my work and my design studio.
