Design in all its forms

As well as being experts in corporate reporting, Blackwood produces brochures, websites, animations and much more...

We produce work for multiple channels, devices and audiences. That means you can trust all your design work to one dedicated team who deliver creativity with consistency and cost effectiveness.

How can we help?

  • Do you need to engage more effectively with employees or get your people collaborating?
  • Is an impending merger likely to lead to a rebrand?
  • Are you keen to simplify your communication with more use of video animations?
  • Are your audience’s needs changing, leading to certain  channels becoming less effective?

Ready to work with a design company that applies intelligent thinking to help you reach further and achieve more?

Ask yourself:

  • Is your corporate reporting working hard enough for you?
  • Does the content of your report stand out from the crowd?
  • Are your reports accessible to the people who matter?
  • Do you know who’s reading them and where they are located?
  • Are you only producing reports in English?
  • Should you be considering other languages?
  • Do you publicise your reports when they’re finished?

Blackwood can help with your corporate reporting and other design projects. Talk to us today to start planning your next project.
