The news is finally here! After a rigorous and thorough selection process involving multiple steps, we are thrilled to announce that Spotless has been selected as one of the agencies for the BBC’s Design Research Roster!

We’ll be assisting the BBC in delivering value to their audiences, maintaining high standards by enhancing the quality of their products and services, as well as driving innovation, diversity and creativity of their design research. This partnership will give Spotless the possibility to work across the BBC’s digital portfolio (e.g. News, Sport, Weather, Children’s, Education, Sounds, iPlayer, Interactive TV, and BBC Homepage) and the systems and services that power these products.

Anna Haywood, Head of Design Research at Spotless, said: “The team are extremely excited for this opportunity. Witnessing their hard work and dedication first hand fills me with immense pride. The BBC are an iconic brand with a diverse portfolio, we can’t wait to bring our experience and research prowess into their projects, adding value every step of the way.”

“I couldn’t be prouder of our Spotless team and all the work they put in to win this. I consider the BBC a true UK heritage brand and am delighted we will get to collaborate on a range of exciting Design Research projects. The BBC are a forward thinking organisation and were pioneers of Web Accessibility in the early 2000’s, long before other organisations considered this an important topic. We can’t wait to work with the various teams at the BBC!” - Ben Logan, Director at Spotless.

We are pleased to be placed alongside some key agencies in the business from a wide range of specialisms for the next 4 years: 2CV Research, Beano Studio, Big Motive, Class35, Designit London, Human8, MTM, Nomensa, The Pineapple Lounge, System Concepts, What People Want.

"Our roster for 2024 - 2028 includes new suppliers along with talented agencies we’ve worked with before. Between them they represent a diverse mix of research expertise, from specialists to help us tackle specific areas like accessibility and younger audiences, to agencies who offer breadth of design services and experience. It was great to meet you all at our away day last month, and here’s to the start of an exciting collaboration." - BBC UX&D
