At Big, we don’t simply make up your brand, we discover it. We learn all about your customers, how they perceive your brand, and how they move through the process—plus we take a look at the competition landscape. Then, we create the ideal messaging and design for your brand.
You won’t find this at most agencies. A lot of firms do “branding.” But some agencies think an identity is only a new logo. An identity package is important, but branding is more than just a little strategy and design.
With our discovery process, we deliver your brand, sharp and in focus—the truest reflection of who you are. A Hi-Res Brand.
Master Spas was an established company, but it was time for their branding to match their vision with a consistent tone and look. We discovered what made Master Spas special and how they stood out from the competition, while also taking time to understand all their sub brands. With this information, we developed the brand architecture: website, logo and brand guide. In the end, we delivered a consistent and professional brand that defined Master Spas.
Pape’s had been a strong company for over 70 years, but the competitive market was now overshadowing this family-owned business. Following our discovery process, we updated the logo and brand guide. The company wanted to sell directly to consumers, so we also produced a major retail website update. The existing catalogue had nearly 15,000 SKU numbers, so we used a Shopify platform to customize the site. This new site and rebrand was finished in time for the busy spring season!
Ceramcor, a family-owned ceramic cookware company, had a one-of-a-kind product and a tightknit cache of loyal customers. But they weren’t serving those customers with the right information, and they struggled to connect and communicate with online visitors. To create a smoother e-commerce experience on their website—the only place their products are sold—they needed a strong platform, strategic branding and a smart redesign. Big fired up the burners and helped them develop a fresh expression for their unique brand.
After more than 90 years in business, this company no longer had a clear definition of who they were, so they lacked a clear brand story. After helping them with a short-term need, we talked to them about discovering their brand so they could gain market share. Big’s research provided Berne Apparel with a clear-cut road map to reaching a target audience who already agrees with the company’s core values – and a strong, successful brand.
In order to best serve its neighbors and patients, Goshen Hospital of northern Indiana decided to end its relationship with a respected, well-known research university. This meant a new name and new look. But it also meant building trust with employees and community members. Big partnered with the health system at every step of the transition, to create a brand that was warm and friendly, yet sophisticated and credible—proof that big changes can lead to healthy outcomes.
American Specialty Insurance is a sports and entertainment insurance company that covers teams of all sizes—from the Major Leagues to your local Little League. When they turned to Big, they were looking for help with marketing materials and asked us to create an ad campaign. But once we took a look at their existing branding, we suggested they refine their identity and reconsider how they were telling their story. We did get to that ad campaign—eventually. But first, we built ASI a brand that empowered their sales team and shared their customer service story.
Big has a dedication that is rare and valuable.
