Who we are

We’re a team with the conviction that good design and good writing make a powerful pair. We have two partners and many resources – small, smart, and flexible.

Established in 2003, Blakeley Words+Pictures is a highly effective editorial/design team with thirty years of experience. We can develop a uniquely appropriate form for your ideas to give the message impact and authority.

We provide a range of services in writing, graphic design, editing, and photography to communicate successfully in print and other media. The company offers full-service publishing from concept to print and now has its own publication division.

The front cover of the most recent Blakeley Words+Pictures publication, Smith Bros.: Four Generations, can be seen at right. This large-format illustrated book tells the story of one of Toronto’s founding businesses, Smith Bros. Motor Bodies.


What we do

We write, edit, design, and photograph. The key to making ideas memorable lies in the intelligent association of words and images. We take the pieces and develop them into effective communication.

How we do it

We believe that taking the work out of the committee room is the only way to get it done right. We listen, conceptualize, and help define the issue. Then we propose, develop, and resolve the solution.

Why choose us

We have the expertise and experience to give you first-rate work while making your job easier. We keep the process simple but the result sophisticated.
