We’re not afraid to rethink things

To our clients, Blacksheep are strategic partners. We take nothing at face value; we approach each project without preconceptions.

We’re a fully integrated team of hospitality specialists – branding experts, interior designers, architects, graphic designers, F&B experts, marketers, and procurement professionals, with the skills and experience to tackle any project from start to finish.

 

Tim Mutton
Founder and Leader

Tim set up Blacksheep in 2002 when he realised he could bring something different to the hospitality and food-and-beverage sectors. His experience in hospitality and interior design convinced him that a designer’s responsibility went beyond interior design. To give a hospitality brand the depth of meaning it deserved, designers should embrace every aspect of the guest experience. Tim’s all-encompassing approach to hospitality branding resonates with guests because it puts them at the heart of their own immersive and escapist experience.

Award-winning, maverick creativity

We develop and implement award-winning concepts that transform spaces and brands. We’re a driven team – practical and grounded – who enjoy relaxing together as much as we like working together. Our shared outlook helps.

The Flock

We’re a geographically and culturally diverse group of design, interiors, food, strategy, and architecture professionals, united by curiosity and by our shared love for the magic that space and hospitality can create. Since we’re cloud-based, we plug into each project from anywhere in the world, and with all the local, cultural, or regional specialisms we need. One of the Flock is always a fluent speaker of the local language.

Variety is our strength. It keeps us tuned to the new; it makes us thirsty for freshness; it propels us towards invention.

The Hub

Every Flock needs a place to call its own. Ours is in central London. The Hub is where we gather for detailed project briefings, for bonding, and for hammering out concepts that demand loud and feisty, face-to-face analytical rigour.

Our Hub could be anywhere on the planet. So wherever we work, we create a new one – a local Hub as inventive, connected, and productive as the London one. We plug in a team and a Hub to give your project the resources it needs, and to develop your brand, space, or strategy in the most efficient and imaginative way.
