Cari Sekendur is a creative director, designer, 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 Founder 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
