Caroline Butterfield

With an expert knowledge of print and design as well as a fantastic relationship with our clients, Caroline has been Oak’s heroine since day one.

After graduating from Canterbury College of Art, Caroline’s first job was as a paste-up artist in an advertising agency in Maidstone. A year later and with very sticky fingers, she decided move on and gain experience in photography and print, then went back to college for two years to study Statistics, Accountancy and Law. On completing her studies, Caroline worked in photography and print and then the newspaper trade for three years before being approached to start up the in-house design studio at SAGA Holidays.

Twelve years later, in 1991, she established her own business in partnership with her life-long friend Gerry Pack. Oak Creative is a design for print and web agency but specialises in illustration, packaging and the more creative side of graphic design. Under Caroline’s leadership, it very soon built a strong reputation for reliability and the ability to deliver cost-effective value for money solutions to clients’ needs.

Entering it’s 25th year of trading, the creative team of nine now offer traditional illustration and print design as well as web design and development expertise.

When she gets the opportunity, Caroline likes to indulge in her love of the countryside, walking, gardening as well as swimming.
