Keep it Real Social, a boutique social media marketing agency in downtown Petoskey, MI,  is excited to welcome Carie Birkmeier to our team full-time as an associate creative director. Carie graduated from Northern Michigan University with a degree in graphic design. Since 2016 she’s worked as a graphic artist and lead designer. Her leadership roles and past agency experience are impressive. Not only is Carie exceptionally talented at design work, but she also has experience with copywriting, web design, and social media management. With her diverse skill set, she will be managing a few high-level client accounts.

“Carie will bring a great deal to the company with her education, experience, and skillset. It will truly level up the design services we provide our clients and prospective clients with an in-house full-time graphic artist”, said Sommer Poquette, Founder and CEO of Keep it Real Social.

Keep it Real Social prides itself on offering exceptional service to its clients, and Carie will help do this and expand the creative services Keep it Real Social can provide in-house. For example, clients often need logos designed or brand kits developed; this service can now be offered in-house. 

Poquette says, “Our 2021 company word is WOW. We wanted to wow ourselves, our clients, and have sensational success. To do so, we invested in people—training, certifications, and hiring talented people. We added a part-time editor to proof all work. We partnered with top-notch photographers and one of the best local web developers in Northern Michigan. The last piece to the puzzle was graphic design, and now we have Carie! She rounds out our talented team and helps us continue to rise above any local competitors. We’re thrilled to welcome Carie Birkmeier to our company.”
