We're passionate about web design because we get to be surrounded by passionate people like you.

After years of working as a freelance web designer creating websites for small businesses around New York, Awaken’s founder Karen Sokolow realized that her passion wasn't only for designing websites, it was working with the people who needed them. She opened Awaken Studio, hired her first employee, and focused on creating more of the beautiful, modern websites that she had become known for.

Over those two years, Awaken Studio gained a reputation for their consistency, personality, and results. As more clients came through referrals and Karen became the NYC Wix Ambassador, the need for growth became apparent, and two new members of the team joined in 2017. With an ability to take on larger projects and more clients, Awaken is continuing its mission of creating one of a kind designs and forming the type of relationships that made us start in the first place.
