About Barker Brooks Creative

Hello, I’m Sophie Brooks, I am a marketing specialist, designer and photographer. Barker is my dog, Eddie, who barks a lot!

We are based in the lovely village of Hartley Wintney in North Hampshire, working with fabulous businesses all over the UK.

My approach is refreshingly affordable, honest and personable. I would love to hear all about your business, so stick the kettle on and get in touch to see how I can help.

We love to bark about brands loudly and get them noticed!

I adore working with small, ambitious businesses and my previous experience makes me a whizz at maximising limited marketing budgets for them. Barker Brooks Creative is a small business too, so I understand the challenges my clients face.

I’ve been creative for as long as I can remember. My first artistic stroke of genius was taking a bespoke birthday cake for my older brother and rearranging it into some kind of cakey-mountain masterpiece in the kitchen sink. I think it’s important to clarify that I was only 3 years old at the time…

Fast forward to the present day and my love of cake and all things creative remains. Following a degree in Photography and MA in Photography and Design, I was eager to use my arty skills to make a living. Whilst freelancing as a wedding photographer after graduating, I stumbled across a wonderful opportunity to run a studio for a chain of family portrait studios in the South East. I was responsible for setting up their marketing strategy, social media accounts and coaching a team of passionate photographers.

Following this I spent six years working with a friendly 4 branch estate agency. I had the pleasure of setting up their marketing department from scratch. During my time there, they won ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’ with Negotiator Magazine, against some pretty big brand names in the property industry.
