What we do

Branding Agency

We’re branding experts, we’ve been branding companies large and small for over two decades. Many web development and digital agencies offer branding, but they don’t have the branding design pedigree of P+K. Being a branding and design agency first allows us to blend our unique skills with strategy and insight. Our branding skills have been used by businesses in Middlesbrough, Teesside, Stockton on Tees, Durham and world-wide from health and education to global online poker companies and multi-nationals.

We offer the complete branding package, wether a small start up or a large organisation looking to re-brand. Maybe who you are now, is different to who you were 5 years ago, but your brand doesn’t reflect this.

Trust the branding experts.

Popple + Kharlamova – Your Brand Growth Partner




``Popple Kharlamova worked tirelessly to help build our brand here at National Home Rentals and thanks to their innovative ideas and strong attention to detail they hit every deadline we had in place. Jamie and his team’s creativity and desire to meet our expectations did not go unnoticed.``

Elizabeth Erikson Marketing Manager - National Home Rentals

Our site was a multi-month project in the middle of a once-a-century pandemic. As we had just started our investment management firm, getting the website right was critical for us as we wanted it to be an inviting source of knowledge, while projecting excellence and forward-modernity. The main challenge was the inability to be in the same room to communicate, describe, and motion our wants and needs.

We did everything via emails. That challenge was effortlessly overcome thanks to the uncompromised professionalism, the understanding, and the creative genius of Jamie and his team. His great reactivity and proactivity were key to get the website built and launched on schedule and under budget.

“Not only did the team at Popple + Kharlamova get underneath our skin, but they asked us questions about our company that even made us think. We're so happy with the results.”
