About us

Creativity that’s on song

With a portfolio of creative work from all walks of business life – food and drink, healthcare, fashion, recruitment, legal, leisure and charities – Blackbird Brands has been creating spot on design for clients for over 10 years. Small in size, but big thinking in its approach, the studio is led by award-winning graphic designer Nick Pettit. Down-to-earth and unflappable, Nick welcomes creative challenges with an open, inquisitive mind and a wealth of brand knowledge. Time flies when you’re having fun!

Our approach

Design that sings

The humble blackbird – a prolific singer – has an amazing capacity for listening, learning and developing its own individual song. It’s these characteristics that inspire how we go about things at Blackbird Brands. We call it ‘design that sings’.

Design that sings is not rocket science and it doesn’t follow a formula. It’s about dedication, practice and pitch perfect solutions.

Design that sings will harmonise with what you want to achieve for your business. It will make your audience sit up and listen. It will get heads nodding and feet tapping. It will hit the high notes and get your business the standing ovation it deserves.


Working in harmony

Blackbird Brands has remained small for two reasons – flexibility and focus. If a project interests us and feels right, we’ll take it on; if it doesn’t, we won’t. If it’s an exciting project but the budget is tight, we’ll work with you to make it happen. Our size lets us focus on you and your business. No challenge is too big and no tweak too small.

We grow and change as needed for each project. To tailor our resources, we are supported by an intrepid team of creative specialists, many of whom we have worked with for longer than we care to remember! Together, we’re experts in illustration, photography, websites and all-things digital, brand strategy and writing.

It means that Blackbird Brands can be a one-man band one minute and then the next, a full orchestra. We love that and so will you.

Let’s chat

If you want the creativity, enthusiasm and experience of a large design agency but with the hands-on approach and costs of a small one, we’d love to hear from you. You’ll find us friendly and willing to go the extra mile. We don’t bring an ego. We don’t stand on ceremony or dress to impress. We’re not influenced by the size of your budget or the car you drive. We simply want to help make your business soar.

If you think we fit the bill, drop us a line at hello@blackbirdbrands.co.uk
