At Blacksheepdesign they love design, communications, brands & websites, PR & Media, marketing, campaigns, events & good ideas. As a full service design agency, they love it all.

The Blacksheep team is creative by design and passionate about making YOU look good. Of course it does help that they’re a bunch of lookers themselves …..

Needless to say, great looking people need great looking digs to work in. So, tired of their old George Street digs, and with constant growth and development meaning they’d well outgrown that space, Stacey Cottrill, Creative Director, went on the quest for a totally hip and cool space to settle her flock into.

Cuba Street is where she ended up. At the beginning, it wasn’t a pretty site this place, and was in desperate need of some earthquake strengthening, as well as it being a Heritage building site. But …. if you could see it now!

Wait you can! Check it out, and while you’re at it check the flock at Blacksheepdesign out – they are totally amazing at what they do!

Oh and the awards, don’t forget the awards. The restoration of this iconic old plumbing building was recognised at the 2013 New Zealand Commercial Projects Awards in Auckland in May, winning GOLD in the Restoration category, winning the RESTORATION CATEGORY, and also winning Best COMMERCIAL PROJECT UNDER $2m. Stoked. We’re truly stoked!!
