Specializing in creative visual design and implementation, KM Digital Design was established by Karen McLaughlin in 2000 (after she made sure we survived Y2K).

Me speaking in the first person now:
I have been avidly involved in computers, graphics and printing since 1985. I proudly flaunt 25 years of expertise in the printing and graphics industries, and over 15 years website development and administration experience.

I have in-depth knowledge of graphics software with mastery in programs including the complete Adobe CS Software Design Premium package. I’m totally in love with WordPress! I’ve been specializing exclusively in WP sites for about 5 years. With WP I still flex my HTML and CSS muscles, but I can now add a smattering of PHP and Javascipt to my resumé as well as some database knowledge. 

Through KM Digital Design I’ve designed, developed and administered websites and complete branding packages for diverse business sectors from manufacturing to artists portfolio sites. Besides my technical experience, I like to think I bring a creative out-of-the-box imagination to the usual analytical, goal driven business approach. A lifelong Philadelphia artist and Tyler School of Art alumni, I thrive on combining my artistic and technical proclivities– bringing the best of both to KM Digital Design clients.

Good things clients say about KMDD

[My site] looks and works great! I couldn’t have asked for a more comprehensive and organized, well designed web site! And you’ve gone above what I was expecting. I can’t wait to write my first blog post!

Karen at KM Digital Design is the rare combination of great designer, excellent communicator and efficient business woman. In other words, she created a exceptional design from a very abstract concept on the first try and completed the entire project on time and on budget. Karen has been accessible to help with minor changes to our website as we start to launch our new business. We love our new website and all our great graphics. Thanks, Karen.

Karen is an extremely talented developer. She understands the client’s goals, is focused in her approach and delivers exactly as promised, when promised. She provides additional value by offering in-depth advice on technical issues to ensure a client’s site remains at the forefront of technology. I highly recommend KM Digital Design to everyone I know.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! 
I am beyond thrilled with the website you did for me-
it is exactly what I wanted and better than I could have imagined.
You made the entire process a treat- you were easy to communicate with, patient with the changes I wanted, and incredibly competent. And all of this from 450 miles away via the internet! Thank you again from a grateful customer!

If it wasn’t for KM Digital Design we wouldn’t have a great website. Karen’s work is excellent. Her attention to every detail is awesome! No matter what we ask her to do she does without hesitation. When we ask her to do updates they are completed by the end of that same day. When beginning our website she gave us some very creative ideas to make the site original. All I can say is that she is “Wonderful” and I’m so happy that she has helped us with our website!

I’ve had a great time working with Karen McLaughlin and KM Digital Design.  She’s walked me through all phases of working with my clients on their WordPress sites and given me an education at the same time.  She’s always open to suggestions and possibilities and then goes to work figuring out how we can make them happen. Her responsiveness to my WordPress “emergencies” and to  the particular needs of a specific project mean a great deal and she never fails me when I’m up against deadlines. Karen is results oriented and no-nonsense–exactly what’s called for when juggling multiple projects.”
