Karen Hagans Promoted to Associate Creative DirectorAugust 9, 2023
Origo Branding Company is proud to announce that Karen Hagans has been promoted to Associate Creative Director. Karen started at Origo Branding over ten years ago, joining our team soon after graduating from the Columbus College of Art & Design. Starting as a Junior Graphic Designer, Karen quickly added to the agency by demonstrating her immense talent and love for creative strategy and design. She added to the culture of our team through her kindness, collaborative spirit, and team-oriented approach, which helped in solving problems and exceeding the communication goals of our clients.
We have been so glad to see Karen grow as a leader for our creative team throughout the years, which has made for a natural evolution into this important role. Through her abilities of conceptual strategy, strategic thinking, and intuition for storytelling, she has led the creative approach for some of Origo’s most notable partners, including major award-winning campaigns for the State of Ohio, Columbus Metropolitan Library, and the Greater Columbus Arts Council, as well as other brand and marketing strategies for clients, such as Abbott Nutrition, Cardinal Health, and ABB Optical Group.
We are very excited for this new chapter, as Karen works alongside Creative Director, Todd Novak, to take on this elevated role, guiding our team of designers, copywriters, animators, and creative strategists – as we continue to strive to help our partners develop work that makes a positive difference for their organization, while adding to the greater good of the world.
