About us

Creativity that’s on song

Blackbird Brands is a small, but big thinking, creative design studio based in St Albans.

Headed up by award-winning creative director Nick Pettit, our diverse portfolio includes work from all walks of business life – food and drink, healthcare, fashion, recruitment, the financial sector and charities. Our approach to successful design is founded on ‘design that sings’. Design that makes an audience sit up and listen. Design that plays on people’s emotions. Design that gets their feet tapping. Design that harmonises with a client’s ambitions. Design that reaches the high notes.

That’s what gets your business a standing ovation.

We’ve been delivering design that sings for a decade (and, yes, we’ve loved every minute!). It’s an approach that serves our clients’ needs well, setting them apart, engaging their audience and driving sales. We work closely with all our clients to create positive partnerships that deliver successful results. Whether it’s launching a new brand or refreshing an existing one, creating a standout website or designing a packaging range, we provide the inspiration clients need when they need their challenges turned into visually exciting design.

Day-to-day, the studio team (plus Dexter, everyone’s favourite Cockapoo) is supported by an intrepid group of creative specialists in areas such as illustration, photography, copywriting, digital and print, giving us the flexibility to tailor our resources according to the client and take on projects both large and small. Most of us have worked together for longer than we care to remember, united by a common passion for practical, effective solutions and happy clients.

If you’re looking for the creativity, enthusiasm and experience of a large design agency but with the personal approach and costs of a small one, we’d love to welcome you into our band.

Let the music play.
