Xibita's Leadership Team

Karen Hansler Director of Creative Services

At Xibita, creativity is based on connecting the right ideas to solve exhibit and display challenges.

Karen Hansler is Xibita’s Director of Creative Services. She graduated from The Ontario College of Art with a degree in Fine Art and Commercial Design. After graduation, Karen gained an extensive Graphic Design background at Roboshop, working with such clients as Remax, TMN, IBM, Safeway Foods, Jack Astors, Arctic Cat and Novartis.

Karen brought her graphic design expertise to Xibita in 1996 to pursue a career in exhibit design. Over the past 21 years, Karen has become an expert in focusing client’s messages onto a wide range of portable, modular and custom exhibit environments. Karen consistently combines strong visuals with unique architecture to create exhibit solutions that exceed client expectations.

Karen has worked with such brands as Rogers, ScotiaBank, Kellogs, McDonalds, The Source, University of Ottawa, CPA and Humber College. Karen has a countless array of Xibita clients that return to her year after year to enhance their exhibit through reconfigurations, additions, structural upgrades, graphic message changes and complete exhibit overhauls. She welcomes the challenges that come from working with her clients to achieve their goals in any capacity that is required.

“The process (for me) was half way home with the selection of both ‘Reflections’ and the ‘Original 8’ systems. A combination I hadn’t even conceived of - prior to my visit. I have worked with a lot of graphics design people in my 20+ years in investor relations for numerous public companies and I would like to say that Xibita was able to translate my concepts and vision wonderfully in a few short emails and phone calls. The end product is excellent and the process has seemed almost effortless (which I know is the real trademark of a pros). My experience with The Portables proves the adage ‘When you want it done right, go to the professionals‘.”
