At Dear Charlie we set dreams. Our dream that we could have a one stop agency that covered all our clients needs in a creative way.

by Steph Honey in Shepshed, England, United Kingdom

My name is Steph and I am the founder and creative lead of Dear Charlie, a multi-disciplinary creative agency, which focuses on Graphic Design and Marketing, along with a few other perks in between. I originally started as a freelance graphic designer working with individuals and small businesses. I then went on to work within the Design industry for over several years' with experience in Editorial, Branding, Print and Social Media design. 

So why are you called Dear Charlie if your name is Steph?

To cut a long story short we are called Dear Charlie because that is our sons name, me (and now my husband who has recently joined forces with me) are hoping we can make a 'legacy' he can be proud of. Only 17% of females within the Design industry ever make it to leadership role status and females are often paid less than male counterparts (20.3% is the current gender pay gap stats!). I want to show my son that women can be empowering, they can make their mark on the world - whether it be starting a business or flying to space. There shouldn't be such a huge gap.

What are our aims and key thinkings?

The key aim behind Dear Charlie is to help brands develop compelling ideas that help captures their target audience. Creating work that thinks out loud and that displays creativity which is present throughout all of our work. We strive to develop compelling ideas and help capture target audiences to drive engagement. Furthermore, we are able to supply this by understanding our clients individual needs and recognise that not every business is a cookie cutter copy and that every business requires a unique touch, therefore we listen, advise and direct in order to drive results – but still ensure we have fun along the way.

Goals? No we prefer dreams!

When Dear Charlie first started we didn’t set goals we set dreams. A dream that we could have a one stop agency that covered all our clients needs, meaning they get the both of best worlds. Rather than a just a fancy poster design they get a fancy poster design that has meaning and engages customers.

DearCharlie are a talented team of designers and creative marketing experts which helped grow my business, I am very thankful for time and dedication they put into my project. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to grow their business. ~ Siobhan Johnson

I recently had some wedding invites made by DearCharlie, and Steph was just amazing, so helpful and so creative too, and kept me well informed along the way with regards to the design process too, and really took on board my own ideas towards it too. When the invites came they were brilliant, just what I had wanted, and loads of our guests have commented on how great they are!
Thank you DearCharlie!
