The Best of British

Blackwood has been described by the UK Government as 'The best of British suppliers to the humanitarian and development sector'. In recognition of our continued outstanding design work, we have been included in the Department for International Trade’s Global Aid and Development Directory 2022 and again in 2023.

Blackwood has a long and successful history of working with all manner of large institutions and NGOs.

Blackwood has a long and successful history of working with all manner of large institutions and NGOs. With clients ranging from the Lives and Livelihoods Fund and Global Affairs Canada to the EBRD and the International Coffee Organization, some of the main areas of our focus have been sustainable development, international financing partnerships, global health initiatives and anti-poverty programmes.

What we do for each of our clients is get their message out.

We are honoured to play a part in helping this sector in the vital work that they do and we are rightly proud of being included in the UK Government’s ‘Best of British’ list.

We do this in multiple formats, across multiple platforms and in multiple languages. Our goal, with each job, is to ensure that our clients’ messaging not only looks great, but more importantly that it connects with its audience and compels them to take notice or take action.

We understand that communicating in different countries is about more than just translating the words. We pride ourselves on being culturally literate, meaning that we ensure that for each new country our work appears in, the individual piece is targeted to that culture and its norms. We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach, which is something our clients really appreciate.

The visual appeal of what we produce is extremely high – engaging without being gimmicky and striking a balance between the traditional and the new. We offer more than “just” sector-leading design – our team includes writers, web-developers and strategists who can help you organise your entire calendar of communications in a smart and cost-efficient way.

Blackwood shares your priorities and concerns, and we’ve got a strong track record of working in the humanitarian and development sector, helping large organisations cut costs and streamline their communications, so that their messages resonate harder with the people they’re trying to reach. We are honoured to play a part in helping this sector in the vital work that they do and we are rightly proud of being included in the UK Government’s ‘Best of British’ list.
