In a world where every agency website claims they’re the best
at everything, here’s what our founders have to say…
Before founding bluesky back in 1998 I spent many years mostly client-side in home products manufacturing and retailing. Employing design agencies from the other side of the fence certainly taught me a thing or two about what I would do (and more importantly, what I wouldn’t do) if one day I was running my own. And here I am.
In the bluesky world our clients and their customers come first. Forget arty-farty-ness — we’re not divas after design awards, we’re marketers after results. We deliver audience-targeted, commercially-focused work that’s driven by strategic objectives. It’s the icing on the cake that our creative team makes every project look amazing while ticking all the other boxes!
Whether you’re Sir Richard Branson or our local village school, we apply the same bluesky energy and creativity to every project.
Straight from school into 80s agency life, I was classically trained in graphic design in the heady days of Cow Gum and typesetting before moving client-side into NPD and marketing much later. The agency/client dual perspective is a great advantage! At bluesky we mix seasoned marketing experience with the highest quality creative; producing some beautifully effective work for an enviable portfolio of clients in the UK and across the world.
Our great reputation has been built on our ‘bluesky’ thinking approach, our consistently high quality of work and our unfaltering client service levels. It’s not a one-size-fits-all formula; it’s an individually-tailored client-agency experience that works.
I love it that each and every blueskyer is passionate about what they do – and that every new client has come via personal recommendation. Some of our team have been with us for over a decade — and some clients too — I hope that speaks for itself.
It’s not just about designing a sparkly new logo, although we do love that part of the project; we look at the bigger picture. Naming, strategy planning and implementation are all part of the bluesky service.
Enticing headlines, thought-provoking copy and impactful imagery that stops you in your tracks — that’s the bluesky formula for a successful ad campaign whether for print or online.
We’ve been designing websites since the world wide web existed. We push the boundaries to create sites that stand out and make your brand unforgettable — visually stimulating, clear to navigate and populated with SEO-friendly, relevant content.
We understand the important role POS plays in your business — not just its design but the power of its content. Educate, excite and motivate! We’re full of bright ideas for on-shelf impact that will build your brand and generate sales.
From refreshing mixer showers to frozen smoothie mixes, our packaging design expertise spans a multitude of products in both the home improvement and grocery sectors all over the world.
With so much information at your fingertips online, printed literature has to work so much harder to be relevant in today’s marketing mix. We love print at bluesky — and we know just how to make it work for you.
"Working with bluesky is always a pleasure and the professional service that they provide makes even the most challenging projects and deadlines achievable. The quality of both creative work and account management means that each brochure is produced to the highest standard. Their experience, knowledge and patience are invaluable, making them the first choice for projects."
"Bluesky have been an incredible addition to the Club and the marketing team. They are always willing to help and regularly go above and beyond to meet extremely tight deadlines. Bluesky have been great in terms of quality of work they produce and the turn around.
We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with them."
"They always hit the nail on the head when answering a brief, always bend over backwards, they never miss a deadline and never go over budget. What more can I say? Oh, and Steve lets me beat him at golf!"
"We worked with the bluesky team for 5 years and I must say they are an absolute pleasure to work with. They’ve supported us on all types of creative projects big and small and always go over and above to meet the brief, even to very tight deadlines. They helped to transform our brand identity to differentiate us from our competitors and it goes without saying I would recommend them as a marketing partner to any business in need of some creative and marketing support."
Marketing Communications Manager
"When thinking of building a new approach for this iconic brand, we needed partners to come on a voyage of discovery and change, not just web designers or marketers who didn’t quite get the bigger picture... bluesky did! They delivered not only the brief, but much more in terms of a platform for the future marketing collateral, standards for our customer journey and cultural feel for the business."
"Plenty of insight, quick to respond, committed to getting it right, very accommodating to all our requirements and extremely easy to work with."
Director of Sales & Marketing
"VLE has collaborated closely with bluesky on a whole range of marketing-related projects... these campaigns have produced tangible results in terms of greater awareness in our target markets and have directly resulted in increased traffic to our websites. "
"Retail is nothing if not fast-moving and bluesky always manages to respond to our needs however fast and furious they may be. The team completely understands our brand and can both react to incoming briefs but also foresee situations and plan accordingly."
"It has been a great pleasure working with Bluesky over the last 10 years. They have supported us in all areas of communication with innovative concepts and utmost professionalism. I look forward to continuing this relationship over the years ahead."
"We have been working with Bluesky for several years. Our first engagement involved building a new web site. The team at Bluesky interpreted our ideas and needs quickly, and we are delighted with the result. Since then, they have created other marketing materials for us with very positive results. Bluesky continue to be our marketing gurus and partners of choice."
"We have worked for many years with Donna and her team at Bluesky and they have been instrumental in helping us create an entirely new and innovative brand identity in what is considered to be very traditional sector.
The ability to apply common sense whilst helping you to push the limits are Bluesky’s undoubted strengths."
"Great working with Donna and the Bluesky team who are always willing to go the extra mile and do their utmost to hit tight deadlines yet always demonstrate real passion and commitment to the SmithCarey recruitment advertising business needs. I would encourage any company to make contact and meet with them to see how their broader marketing services can be of assistance."
"Since bluesky has been responsible for our marketing, our pupil numbers have increased way beyond the target we set ourselves."
