Simplify the messaging, consolidate the brand, make it more memorable, and always put the members first. It’s member-driven design, plain and simple.

Launched in February 2020, the Apple-backed Ed Farm provides technical and coding education for Birmingham’s most disadvantaged students. Big not only created the Ed Farm brand — with visually appealing three-dimensional iconography and vibrant gradients embodying transition and change — but also planned and executed an event featuring Apple CEO Tim Cook to publicly launch it in a way that earned media attention, excited the community, and embraced the future of technology throughout Birmingham. For its collective efforts — and due to the successes Ed Farm has experienced since launch — Big was named a national 2020 PR NEWS Platinum PR Award winner in the Community Relations category.

When the United Soccer League announced the launch of a professional soccer team in Birmingham, Big was tasked with building the brand from scratch — team name, brand identity, uniform design, team mantra, social media, stadium banners, paid media and more.

But the real task was to rally a city. To fill the stands. To build community pride in a city where pro sports teams had never previously flourished. To do that, we knew that it has to be about more than a perfect name or a well-designed uniform. It’s about connection.

The proof is in the stands. In March 2019, Birmingham Legion FC opened its season to a sold-out game. Eight months later, they average 88% home game attendance, making Legion FC 13th in attendance out of the 36 USL Championship teams.

We worked together with local musician, The Green Seed to create a custom track for our hype video. The Legion Soccer Anthem is available on Spotify and Apple Music.

We’ve made a lot of good friends at the beach thanks to our Alabama Gulf Seafood campaign. And when the owners of The Hangout were developing a new seaside restaurant concept, we were the clear choice to bring the brand to life.

The University of Montevallo is a unique place. As Alabama’s only public liberal arts university, it attracts an incredibly diverse yet likeminded group of individuals with a passion to create their own path instead of following those more traveled.
