About Big Blue


Big Blue Communications helps partners to tell compelling stories. Dedicated to human development, we work primarily 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 our operations, we value ethical behaviour that considers people and the planet. In our partnerships, we value trust and empathy.

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

Big Blue Communications promotes diversity and inclusion and does not discriminate based on race, colour, creed, religion, sex, gender, national origin, citizenship, ethnicity, marital status, age, disability or sexual orientation. We actively support the empowerment of women in the workplace and society, and we 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.
