you know your business - we know marketing
let's talk

who we are

There are now so many ways to communicate with your customers. But, even in an insta-world, the old fashioned rules of eye-catching design and engaging writing still apply.

At Oak Creatives, we offer the best of both worlds.

Traditional training and international experience with a fresh, creative approach to every project rooted in a desire to sell your story with the latest marketing tools.

We are two friends. A creative director and graphic designer, Saskia Snel, and Sian Lewis, a content strategist and commercial copywriter. Together we provide joined-up marketing so that every word and every image tells the story you want your customers to read.

Saskia snel

Co-Founder & Creative Director

Saskia honed her skills in one of London’s most highly respected design and marketing agencies, working for clients including Clarins and Hitachi. Since relocating to Sussex, she has provided design and marketing services to across the UK and The Netherlands. Yes, the Netherlands. Saskia is Dutch and speaks fluent Nederlands.

We approach every client project with the same curiosity, creativity and a desire to make a difference to their business, says Saskia.

Between us, Sian and I have (whisper it) more than 40 years experience working with national and international brands. We channel that knowledge to help our clients sell what they do.

sian lewis

Co-Founder & Content director

After a properly old-school newspaper journalism apprenticeship, Sian left Fleet Street (or, what remained of it) for New York in 2001 to work as a correspondent for publications including The Times, Marie Claire and Red magazine. Since settling in Sussex, Sian has tailored her writing to provide copy that sells for commercial clients in the UK and France. Yes, France. Sian was born there and speaks fluent français.

Words are a great way to sell what you do, says Sian. It is all about telling a story – in a way that people want to read and will remember. I love finding out what someone wants to say and working out the best way to help them say it.

Great writing is the same whether you are conjuring up a headline to shift papers or creating content for a client who wants to make their business dreams a reality.

The team

Oak Creatives is also a meeting of minds and creative talent. Our clients benefit from our tried and trusted network of photographers, videographers, illustrators, web designers, SEO experts and project managers.

Many of us have worked together for years. We trust them. So, you can trust them too.

Together we can grow your business.

“Launching a new business is both exciting and terrifying. Having Saskia and Sian on board to handle all our design and marketing made such a difference. They are both friendly, dealing with them was a pleasure. We love our new website and so do our customers – which is the most important thing!”
