As a business owner, you want a great logo, designs that attract the right attention, and communications that pull everything together in one package so that your customers fall in love with you and your business. There is a lot of noise out there and sometimes it's hard to make yourself heard above it all but you need to stand out. And stand out you will!

Wouldn’t it be great if you had a designer who knows what it's like to be you?

Someone who can translate the unique ideas in your head into stunning visuals. A designer who specialises in creating custom brand identities and websites that stand out in a sea of businesses vying for attention.

And someone who hits every deadline, and gives you everything you need to communicate your brand in a compelling way that feels more like YOU. After all, you are your brand, and there is no one quite like you.

Karen Blake

All I ever wanted to do was be a designer, from a very young age, my mother said I was 'born with a pencil in my hand'.

In 2004 I launched a full-service marketing agency – 2 Hot Marketing – with its roots firmly entrenched in creative services for the hospitality sector and helped a large pub chain launch its premium brand. Since then I have grown my team and have some amazing people working with me.

However, I also wanted to offer exclusively one-to-one branding and design services as well as marketing services. In 2016 I launched this side of the business and focused on providing brand strategy, styling and web design for entrepreneurs like me.

During my 20+ year career, I have designed everything from crisp packets to coffins! I have worked with a number of different sectors and industries, having been head of design for a large retail chain, a packaging designer for the FMCG sector and in-house designer for blue-chip companies and government departments.

My passion lies in brand styling and web design for ambitious and brave entrepreneurs.

I have been where you have been, I have felt your frustrations, I know what it's like to run a business, build a brand and stand out from the competition by creating a brand you can be proud of. 

I run my studio from the beautiful Warwickshire countryside, just outside Coventry and in the middle of the Kenilworth Greenway. Why not book a call with me and chat about your branding and see what magic we can work together?

I can help you transform your business and become a flamingo in a flock of pigeons!


I'm ready to elevate my brand.
