Karen Brown is the Creative Director for The Center for Ecoliteracy. Brown is an award-winning designer who has worked with the Center for Ecoliteracy for over a decade. A former independent software developer and technologist, her exposure to concepts initially learned in IBM's usability laboratories instilled in her a lifelong sensitivity to the human and environmental consequences of good and bad design.

An early adopter of culturally sensitive, multi-disciplinary design practices, she has lectured on design-related topics in Japan and Europe. Today, Karen's primary area of creative interest is communicating with general audiences on issues of ecological literacy, education, and re-localization. Her work has been included in the Smithsonian Institution and Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, and featured in The New York Times, Architectural Digest, and dozens of other popular and technical publications as well as NBC's Today Show.
