10710623_584736916607_1961364064295139135_nThanks for stopping by.  My name is Kara Berhow, and I am a marketing manager for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK working in Des Moines, Iowa who moonlights as an artist.  At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, Des Moines, I head up all marketing efforts including recruiting, graphic design, branding.

I also have worked to lead the Marketing efforts at Choice Genetics USA.  At Choice Genetics, I led all the marketing efforts and help direct the global team in branding campaigns… everything from video to Client Management Systems to press releases. CGUSA is a swine genetics company, so it makes sense that the US headquarters are in West Des Moines. I enjoyed meeting  and working with the folks in the swine industry, and helping to find unique ways to market our products. I continue to work with the company as a freelance consultant.

As the lead designer at Webspec Design I got to stretch my wings and try new things all the time. In addition to creating custom website designs, I also managed several projects, wrote website content, managed the branding/marketing team, provided photography services for clients and took care of some light HR duties.

I love design. I love the web. I specifically adore using design and the web to enhance the branding and marketing of companies. I enjoying thinking about how we get your brand to your audience in the most effective and innovative way. And what does that look like?

I also fancy myself a portrait artist, specializing in acrylic on canvas.  Several years ago I started a small business, Midwest Pet Paintings. Hop on over and check out some of my work if you are interested.  As an animal fanatic, combining my adoration for both art and pets has been quite the trip!
