Defy Convention
Create Change

NB is a team of designers and strategists in London – a pocket battleship capable of rising to any challenge. We’ve worked with the biggest media brands and the smallest theatres. We’ve created vast brand identity systems and miniature stamps that move people. Our work appears in the V&A, MOMA and discerning homes everywhere.

At NB we say, “Defy convention to create change.” From experience, great things happen when we challenge assumptions, confound expectations and find fresh answers.

Early on in any relationship, NB likes to run creative workshops - it's a great way to rapidly prototype strategies and ideas with our clients.
When NB decided to put on a play in South Africa for an audience of 2,500, we'd never worked with actors, playwrights or a revolving floor before.

The fact is we’re not a huge shiny agency – we’re an enthusiastic and talented bunch of creatives who want to make a difference. Independent since 1997, we say what we think and stand up for the things we believe in. If you like what you see here, talk to us.
