The shoe box

The shoe box is where you will find out what is happening at big shoe. We will share our latest projects, what we think about what’s going on in the world of design and other randomness. Interact with us and share your thoughts and ideas too. We love sharing and hearing from you.

FREE Design… maybe not

We don’t normally do “before and after” posts but sometimes an opportunity arises that just can’t be missed. We’re using this example because it illustrates the obvious… Go Pro!

The before example was a FREE design that came with a purchased writing service. The client was not impressed and asked Big Shoe to help. Low funding didn’t allow us to reinvent the wheel but we were able to take the existing layout and create a much more professional look.

Give your project the kick it needs. Go Pro… Go Big Shoe! #gopro #gobig #gobigshoe

I’m a Graphic Designer

It’s a serious pet peeve when you tell people you are a graphic designer. The responses are often ignorantly lame and demeaning. We design the world you look at people! If you paid more attention and hire skilled professionals it would be a much better looking world. Just sayin’

That said, this vid is a good laugh!


Big Shoe is proud that a large portion of their work is for not-for-profit organizations. Hiring a professional designer for your promotional materials conveys that you are a serious and reputable organization and in turn increases fundraising dollars.
