Award-winning design agency moves to Liverpool

Wed, August 5th, 2020

SOKA Studio has relocated to Liverpool and joined the Chamber.

Award-winning Graphic design and website development agency SOKA Studio has moved to Liverpool, and joined the Liverpool Chamber, as the business looks to expand in the city.

SOKA’s founder Sophie Karaer has brought the business to Aigburth to create a permanent Liverpool base. The agency, which has been based in Lincoln since 2016, has grown to a team of four and was named Micro Business of the Year at last year’s Lincolnshire Technology and Innovation Awards. SOKA also has 40 five-star reviews on Google.

Sophie Karaer, Creative Director at SOKA Studio, said: “I’m so pleased to be moving the business to Liverpool - there’s so much opportunity here. I’ve recently moved to the city having visited in the past and fallen in love with the culture, arts and music scene, and there are loads of exciting businesses that I can’t wait to work with.

“We’ve worked so hard to build our reputation over the last five years. We’ve got an amazing, award-winning team that’s grown almost entirely through word-of-mouth recommendations. Now we’re bringing that client satisfaction to Liverpool.”

While in Lincoln, SOKA has worked with national brands such as Iconic London, Lawyers on Demand (LOD), Metail, Unblocked Events and LegalEdge. Their work has featured on the Instagram accounts of Kim Kardashian and 'Mrs Hinch'

Sophie Karaer founded SOKA Studio from her kitchen table in 2015, before opening her first office in Lincoln and winning work from companies in a wide range of sectors, including cosmetics, construction and legal services.

Now, the agency has opened in Liverpool to continue its expansion, with members of the team working from various locations across the UK, including Lincoln, Sheffield, Brighton and Newcastle.

The team includes Creative Director Sophie, Senior Web Developer Matthew, Senior Graphic Designer Alfie and Administrator Danielle. Together, they provide clients across the UK with a broad range of brand and website design services.

SOKA also frequently works with university graduates to offer industry work experience. In 2019, they took on eight students for two week work placements.
