Sarah Kate Designs is made up of me, Sarah Kate, and my four-legged office assistant, Daisy.

I’m a friendly, empathetic, multi-passionate designer and creative freelancer, with a head for creative problem-solving and an eye for visual design.

And Daisy is a lovable Labrador who likes long naps and diving head-first into lakes.

We’re based in the harbour town of Whitehaven on the West coast of Cumbria, about twenty minutes  from the Lake District, and we work with brilliant businesses throughout the UK.

"I absolutely love what you have done and the professionalism you have applied to the project. A very heartfelt thank you from me and the team at BEC."
