About Big Blue

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.

Big Blue helps international development teams to communicate with meaning, emotion, and impact. So far, we have supported teams in Pakistan, Nepal, the UK, US, Canada, and Australia.

We are communications partners, and we tell stories through film, animation, publications, events, and online experiences. Our work has given us priceless opportunities to solve communication challenges worldwide in the fields of girls' empowerment, climate change, inclusive finance, health, and other major development issues of our time.

We understand international development, and over the last five years, we have delivered assignments for programmes funded by DFID, USAID, EU and the World Bank.
