I am Karin and La Cartrina is my creative studio. Although having my roots in Switzerland, I see myself as a citizen of the World. I love exploring and getting inspired by immersing myself into different cultures.
One of my favourite places I lived in is Mexico, where I got the inspiration for the name of my creative studio. It’s a combination of La Catrina (Mexico’s iconic figure) and Art, my passion.
I love using bold and bright colours to create joyful designs, which make you happy! I am inspired by all things mexican, cute, joyful, fresh and tropical but also like carnival, nature, botanicals and collages. A mix of everything!
Karin took the concept and ideas that were floating around in my head and interpreted them into super cool designs. The images we now have for our brand really set us apart and give us the bold, bright, cool look we imagined. Massive thanks for the great creative work!

EXCELLENT – this is how I felt Karin's commitment, creativity and her style awareness was in the realisation of my wishes. From my idea for the design of my CD packaging, Karin created a nostalgic-romantical design, which transports the mood of my music wonderfully. She demonstrated a great diversity of ideas and the ability to develop the concept in different directions. For the end product I get a lot of compliments and I am very happy about the beautiful creation.
THANK YOU KARIN!
