Cari Sekendur is a creative director, designer, art director, illustrator, and strategist principally based in New York City and traveling frequently.
Cari applies a unique approach to each project, tailoring her process to the client's goals. Her work blends the playful with the elegant while always focusing on a strong conceptual foundation. Her approach is full-circle, taking into account each piece of the pie throughout a project, from visual design to strategy to tone of voice and beyond.
She is currently a Principal and Creative Director at Butter Studio. Previously, she worked for studios LMNOP and The Adventures Of in NYC and Berlin. Prior to that she led a team in operations and cut her chops in marketing at fast-paced ecommerce companies in Berlin, NYC, and Chicago.
"Working with Cari was a dream. She has now helped me envision and execute two separate hospitality concepts. Unlike a ton of other designers we've worked with, she kept on schedule, delivered collateral to vendors on time if not ahead of and went above and beyond in lending a hand in our creative process. I trust her eye, and her ability to translate my vision into real brand assets that will drive business. I could not have articulated what I want better myself, and she paid close attention to every detail I requested, ensuring a final product I am proud to show off. I would highly recommend working with Cari to anyone I know!"
- Hannah Schneider, Owner of Ketter Coffee Supply
"Cari did an outstanding job with my record label rename & rebrand. Not only did she nail the concept & the logo, but her process totally changed my own conception of what I wanted my label to represent. Every aspect of her work showed careful thought & insightful creativity. I couldn’t be happier & prouder with Alma Mater Records."
- Sam "DJ Shiftee" Zornow, Owner of Alma Mater Records
