What’s in a name?
We’re called black&blue because we’re seasoned professionals – we’ve been through the wringer, as they say, weathered a few storms, been around the block a few times. We’re definitely not over the hill, but we’re not fresh-faced spring chickens either.
Tell me more…
black&blue was created to be the antidote to the standard agency model. We have a way of working that allows us to put our clients and their projects first.
We are fully-integrated, made up of an elite team of client service and creative professionals, strengthened by a network of award-winning experts. We’ve chosen our support network over many years of working within the UK’s creative sector – and further afield. We know who’s who and what’s what.
black&blue works with the best in the business – wherever they’re based. If your project needs it, we’ll draft in a ‘best-in-class’ designer from Leeds, a copywriter from London and a filmmaker from Lisbon. We don’t let office walls limit our team selection.
This approach allows us to be flexible, bringing in specialists and scale to meet our clients needs, wherever and whatever they may be.
How we work
We recognise that every project and client is different. We’ll work the way you want us to, but here’s the black&blue five-step process to get us thinking:
It all starts with a conversation. We believe that good work is born of knowing what we’re trying to achieve, not what we’re trying to produce.
Every project we work on is part of a bigger picture. We define what success looks like and our part in it, way before we start.
As soon as we understand what we’re trying to achieve, we assemble the most relevant and specialised team for your project.
Your black&blue project team will deliver ideas, completed creative and follow-up programmes for specific or multi-channel communications.
Our focus on review and measurement is another thing that sets us apart. We’ll evolve alongside you and monitor progress for the life of the project.
As a collective we have years of experience working with some of the most exciting brands out there. We’d love to talk about how we can use this experience to help you.
We always put together the most relevant, experienced and talented team to help you. You won’t just get who is ‘free’ or ‘unbooked’.
Nobody will disappear from the team after we start to work together – the people you meet at the beginning of the project will be the people you work with.
If your projects grow or decrease in size and complexity, we’ll be flexible. We scale resources up and down accordingly without any fuss.
Ultimately, the emphasis is and always will be on you, and what’s best for you.
