Our founders, Karen and Jason Kirk not only run the business together but have also been married for 25 years!  They met in 1992, and started the business a year after they married.

Karen says: ‘We have a great understanding of what the other one is thinking. Our skills complement each other and we share the same aesthetic appreciation. Possibly the worst part about being married to your work partner is that it’s hard to ever stop working!’. 

Career achievements include winning the Silmo D’Or Award in 2003, London Design Award and the Hall of Frames Newcomer Award. Their designs have graced many a famous face; from Stevie Wonder, Oasis, U2 and Julia Roberts to Stephen Dorff, Ricky Gervais and Gary Oldman, yet the design duo confess their greatest achievement of all is ‘surviving in a competitive world’.
