Karen Martz

Founder, Lead Creative - Brand and Website Design
With over a decade of design experience I love creating dynamic brands and websites. As the years have passed and my own skillset has grown I have discovered an affinity for creating brands that are attention grabbing, colourful and engaging paired with websites that support business owners in streamlining their processes to make their day to day lives easier - saving time, money and ultimately giving them better work-life balance - the dream!

When you work with me, I’ll develop a brand that does more than look good - it’s a thoughtfully crafted, marketable tool that creates connection with your audience. Every website I design is done with a stack of tools that create custom solutions - no templates - each design is unique to each business.

I love working collaboratively with other experts to create excellent outcomes for our clients. In working together, we bring you into the process, get you engaged with the work and also take a load off - because we do all the creative and technical work so your work hours can be spent doing what you’re passionate about.

When I'm not creating brands, you'll find me spending time with my tribe of boys, playing (and coaching) hockey and doing what Melbournians do best - finding great cultural activities paired with awesome coffee and dining.

What is a collaborative design studio?

A melting pot of essential creative and technical skills: Brand Design, Website Design and Development, Copywriting, SEO and Content Production
As a collaborative studio, the unique skill sets of experts are bought together to create packages to deliver exceptional outcomes. Its not an agency, it’s a collaboration of engaging processes and methods where the client is connected with the work as it develops and we build a trusting relationship. Our clients can confidently continue with their own day-to-day responsibilities, while we get to work creating beautiful brand designs and custom Wordpress websites.

We are different, there's no doubt about that. Our studio thrives on ownership of work and easy processes, we love working with good people to create exceptional outcomes. We are honest and transparent, open and engaging people who make the branding process one of excitement. We knuckle down, we set boundaries and we communicate clearly every step of the way – and do all of this while truly enjoying what we do. We are 100% who we say we are and completely invested in every client's success.

As a team, we love working together as like-minded, passionate business owners, each with their own unique set of skills and support each other in growing our own businesses. Together, we have found that we can achieve so much and we thrive in our supportive, community-led ethos.

With over a decade of digital marketing experience, Lauren is well-versed in creating SEO-friendly content that brings your brand to life, helping you attract your ideal audience through the power of words.

Hello! I’m Lauren – Starting life in Scotland, and now in Sydney, I’ve been a budding wordsmith since I could hold a pencil. But now, with many years of big-brand experience under my belt in both the UK and Australia, my passion lies in helping small businesses grow and succeed.

When not grappling with grammar or perusing a thesaurus, I spend my time seeking out large bodies of water to cool off in, while exploring this country that I’m lucky enough to call home (with plenty of sunscreen, of course).
