Individual clients:

As a solopreneur, a self-employed home-based business, or even a professional fisherman, self-marketing can often seem like a paralyzing obstacle. As a result, your image or brand often gets less attention, falling short of effectiveness.  Big Idea can help fix that. We will illuminate your visual story and keep you organized and looking sharp.

Businesses and Organizations:

Marketing your products and services is essential to growth.  However, many businesses and organizations overlook other opportunities that exist. For starters, your employees, after all, are the faces of your company.  Are you stuck with selfies for employee profiles? Maybe it is the workspace imagery on your website that suffers? Furthermore, your logo or brand. Does it shine? Is it well represented in all you do? Logos and dynamic images of your work environment and business actions are wonderful storytellers of your unique brand.  Are you standing out visually?   From a single headshot to impactful images for your website, we are excited to tell your story.

Building lasting relationships.
