Answer: they all have to do with causes we care about.
We’re proud to be from the South, and to align with organizations that serve the people and environment we call home. This spring, we’re celebrating three recent projects to benefit causes we believe in.
Each of these, designed by Big staff, reflects a refresh for non-profits dear to our hearts.
“All of these organizations have a history of making a huge impact in our region,” says Big president and founder John Montgomery. “The least we can do is lend our creative talents to help them tell their stories using a modern approach. Big is in business to make a difference while making a living.”
Good design + notable non-profits? We think it’s an equation where everybody wins.
The darter is a tiny endangered fish that can only be found in the waters of Central Alabama. One place they thrive is Turkey Creek Nature Preserve in Pinson, about 20 miles north of Birmingham. The Southern Environmental Center’s Junior Board sponsors this event to raise money and awareness for the indigenous fish.
The redesigned items reflect the spirit of the event, and provides a visual foundation of the darter’s legacy.
The fifth annual Darter Festival will be held from 2-6 p.m., Sunday April 9 at the new Make BHM.
The late Howard Finster, one of America’s most widely known folk artists, produced nearly 47,000 pieces of original art that can be seen in museums from The Smithsonian to the American Visionary Art Museum. His Summerville, Georgia showplace, Paradise Garden, is open year-round and remains as a tribute to the artist and his creativity.
Finster Fest, held here May 27-28, features the work of more than 50 artists (a majority being self-taught), a concert stage, and a chidren’s art-making area.
We worked to redesign the poster and other materials, bringing in motifs used by the late artist.
If you’ve recently driven past My Sister’s Closet on 3rd Avenue North, you’ve seen a brightly colored mural painted on the wall. The mural was designed as part of a larger effort to renovate the resale shop, which assists women in need with career clothing. With renovations by Brasfield & Gorie, Big designed the mural.
Featuring the United Way campaign theme, “Together There Will Always Be Away,” it now greets passersby and the women and children served by the YWCA.
Big works with several non-profits and community organizations across the State. We’re proud to partner with Bo Bikes Bama, National Veterans Day, Sidewalk Film Festival, The Women’s Fund, and more.
