Blackwood Creative Ltd.

We are Blackwood

We work with the best creative talent | Who we are

While we have a dedicated creative studio to service our clients, we do work with a wider network of contributors. If you’re creative and would like to partner with our studio team on an exciting variety of projects, we’d love to hear from you.

We’re often called upon to produce work across a range of channels, so we’d love to see your transferable on and off-line skills. Have a look at the case studies on our Work page for an idea of the sorts of things we do. If you have skills that could enhance our work, let’s talk. (Please note, we don’t talk to agencies.)

  • your eligibility to work in the UK
  • an up-to-date CV and three references
  • your proven track record
  • your current rate card

Blackwood is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all suitably qualified people regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.

We’re a growing agency with energy and bright ideas and we’re always keen to meet new, like-minded people who want to develop their skills on challenging projects.

A versatile studio

When we built our studio, we wanted to create an exciting and adaptable space where we could work and play too. The result is an open and flexible layout with the built-in ability to change from studio to gallery to entertainment space.

Blackwood Presents

Ours is a vibrant, lively community and we like sharing our studio with those around us. We’ve created a multi-functional venue with an intimate, friendly atmosphere where we can put on all sorts of events. Blackwood Presents is our way of building relationships with the wider creative community, appealing to people who need a space to hire or simply showcasing talent.

Coming soon

Artists Open House Festival
After several years as hosts, Blackwood is taking a well earned break to enjoy visiting our fellow artists. The 2017 AOH festival will run for four weekends from Saturday May 6th to Monday 29 May. Meanwhil our friends at Oshun Oxtra have been busy producing new works for their online gallery.

Dates for your diary: Artist Open Houses, Weekends, 6 - 29 May 2017

The Blackwood collection

We’re always working on different projects and ideas – our team includes published illustrators and artists. We’re also tea devotees. To celebrate our love of this great British obsession we’ve created a range of tea-inspired products, all available from our studio.

Did you know?

The average Briton drinks 876 cups of tea every year. That’s enough to fill two bath tubs.
Sit back and relax with a cup of tea in a Blackwood bone china cup.
A series of six Blackwood cards celebrating our love of the great British cuppa.
Cards and cups will be on display at the Artist Open House festival.
165 million cups of tea are drunk every day in the UK, compared to 70 million cups of coffee.
