About Studio Barn Creative

We believe that doing the right things the right way gets results.  It's our job to learn more, be more, and do more than is expected of us.  Overall, our mission is to ensure that your construction company outperforms its competition online.


How it Started

Way back in 1997, we weren't expecting to specialize in digital marketing for construction companies. We started out simply wanting to provide quality websites and digital assistance for any business that wanted to work with us. It didn't take too long before the smell of dirt or drywall, and the sounds of heavy equipment and power tools were what we wanted to surround ourselves with.

This business has morphed a few times since the beginning, and always with forward momentum.  In 2015, we refocused, renamed and rebranded as Studio Barn Creative.

How it's Going

Fast forward and we are successfully managing full-service digital marketing programs for large construction businesses, including marketing strategies, SEO, sales enablement, content marketing, and Social Media services.  We're also building custom websites, managing the maintenance of websites of all sizes and industries in multiple countries, and helping construction companies successfully improve their tech and design across the board because our team is a group of doers, creative thinkers, and problem solvers.

We naturally gravitate towards businesses with enthusiasm, businesses that are service based, and businesses that are growth-minded.  Our mission is to help you stand out from the competition and to keep getting those wins.

Kari is Studio Barn Creative's founder and creative director. Raised in New Jersey and during her career, Kari worked in various creative roles (including within the Construction Department) for a Fortune 500 real estate development company in Philadelphia, and also a large privately held Canadian company with more than 30 offices around the globe.

In 2002, Kari relocated to Summerville, South Carolina and continued working remotely for the Canadian company. She also married a man with a long family history of working in the sitework construction industry.  Along the way, she was also slowly building Studio Barn Creative.

Over the past 25 years, Kari has worked on a variety of projects for several large corporations. In 2021, she said goodbye to her corporate role and began focusing solely on SBC. She's been applying the winning principles she learned over her career to grow Studio Barn Creative into a digital marketing agency that helps businesses in the construction industry to reach their own goals.  Kari says one of her favorite things about managing the agency is the mornings she gets to put on work boots, get out in the field, and talking with the people that make it all happen.
