About Big Blue


Big Blue Communications helps partners to tell compelling stories. Dedicated to human development, we work in the social and non-profit sectors with teams that want to change the world. These include international development programmes, NGOs, universities, and think tanks.

Our core belief: clear, empathic communication can help to overcome the world’s major development challenges.

In operations, we value ethical behaviour that considers people and the planet.

In partnerships, we value trust and empathy.

Reach out if your team wants to craft a message that the world needs to hear.

We actively encourage women to apply to work with us.

Social media, video, mobile phones, data analytics, and the global spread of technology are changing the way that international development teams can communicate. We help teams find and communicate meaningful stories on the channels that your audiences use.
