BBG is lucky enough to have our work side by side with companies like L’Oreal Paris, Glossier, Neutragena, La Mer, Estee Lauder and more.

About Elle:

Elle was founded in Paris the immediate aftermath of World War II and first sold as a supplement to France-Soir, edited at the time by Pierre Lazareff. Hélène Gordon-Lazareff, Elle’s pioneering founder, returned to Paris from New York City to create a unique publication that grappled with the many forces shaping the lives of women in France in 1945.

Its 100th issue, published on 14 October 1947, featured the work of Christian Dior just eight months after his debut show. Likewise, Brigitte Bardot graced her first Elle cover at age 17, on 7 January 1952, months before her screen debut in Manina, the Girl in the Bikini. By the 1960s, Elle had a readership of 800,000 across France and was said to “not so much reflect fashion as decree it.” This dominance was reflected in the famous slogan: “Si elle lit, elle lit Elle (If she reads, she reads Elle)”.

In 1985, Elle launched in Britain and the United States. Elle.com was launched in 2007.

About Equilibria:

Co-Founder Marcy Capron Vermillion’s life forever changed after receiving some CBD as a gift for her 30th birthday. An incredible success story, she was able to drastically reduce her reliance on pharmaceutical drugs, and tackle her mental health and spinal nerve pain issues. So naturally, as an engineer and perpetual innovator, she chose to learn everything possible about this powerful health agent, eventually leading workshops and gatherings on the medicinal and regulatory power of cannabis for women. (Northwestern, Co-Founder Polymathic, acquired by DevMynd)

Co-Founder Coco Meers is a busy tech operator, investor, advisor, and – most importantly – mom of 2. CBD gives her peace of mind to be even more present with her family and relieves pain from her autoimmune spine condition.  (Princeton, Booth MBA, L’Oreal, Founder PrettyQuick acquired by GRPN)

For women, by women. That’s Equilibria. We understand that female bodies are different, from cyclical changes to the very real challenges of menopause and childbirth and everything in-between. So at EQ, we believe quality matters. We believe service matters. And women deserve a CBD brand that can deliver all of the above!

Who Are The Best Mobile App Developers in Chicago?

Mobile App Daily was kind enough to include Bright Bright Great in their list Best Mobile App Developers in Chicago 2019.

From Mobile App Daily

The report features leading names in the mobile app industry who have made themselves known for their application development services. With key factors like client testimonials, work quality, and more, we are here to help make the final decision.

Best Mobile App Developers in Chicago 2019

Spread the Word

It’s hard to find a needle in a haystack. But even harder to feature on MobileAppDaily. For us, the doors to this opportunity opened the moment word spread of our enviable standards in digital service delivery. 

Our foundational ethos – to offer end-to-end business administration services from brand strategy to front end development & campaign management, positions us on a unique pedestal. It is for this reason, BBG offices have played host to partners, keen to join hands with a vibrant team unfazed by challenges. 

Yes, it’s a tough task of anyone to pin-point a single universal selling point from our array of services, given the ambit of accomplishments at Big Bright Great. Yet, expert opinion of MobileAppDaily has put their verdict on our development services via this report on the Best Mobile App Developers in Chicago in 2019.

While we are happy to share the podium with equally celebrated firms, the fact that a publication of the stature of MobileAppDaily took interest in us, is laudable. To put it more eloquently, we’d be part of a section that runs annual analysis on the creme de la creme of mobile application developers. 

But that’s just the tip. 

Detailed app reviews, the latest news which is doing the rounds and success stories of high-achievers, make up the body of work that firms like ourselves would happily contest for. 

For reasons mentioned here, and the ones we can’t put in words due to being humbled, we have this to say:

“It is our promise to all prospective B2B & B2C clients that if this is the reward of putting ourselves through the grind, you’d bet we have 100,000% more to offer”

CBD is No Joke

As the CBD space explodes at a rate of 7x in 2019 commercial attention has been focused on marijuana, as states such as Illinois and Michigan have legalized recreational use. But hemp is a bigger market with fewer barriers to entry, making it attractive to startups and established companies alike.

6 Top WordPress Designers Share Their Keys to Success

Running a successful WordPress agency is no easy task. The landscape changes quickly and what worked yesterday may not be the best practice today. As you will see, some things change, but many things will always stay the same.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing six of the most successful WordPress agencies in North America to understand what makes them great.

Read the full article on AccessWP by Anthony Tran.

Jason Schwartz, Bright Bright Great

Jason is a self-confessed process nerd. He is always watching both business operations and processes looking for ways to improve.

What is your biggest tip for running a successful agency?

“New tools and products come out every week that making it easier for both our internal team and our partners to communicate. Always being open to test and potentially change our tools is important.”

How do you make sure your customers are happy?

“This is something that is really important to us. Happy customers mean both referrals and repeat projects. We put everything we have, heart and soul into all projects to push beyond what is expected. Clients are typically not designers, developers, UX specialists, so when I hear from them that we went beyond anything they could have dreamed up, that’s a win.

What makes Bright Bright Great special in the market?

“We have our own in-house type foundry called Avondale Type Co. We can design and license unique typefaces to global brands.”

Key Takeaways

  • People: Taking on the right clients and hiring talented team members.
  • Process: Having an efficient and effective process that you always look to improve.
  • Products: Providing great service and going the extra mile.

About CBD:

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substanceCBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.

From Equilibria:

Industrial hemp is a cannabis sativa plant grown specifically to exhibit 0.3% THC content or less — this is why there’s no discernible intoxicating effect, but also why it’s legal. Any industrial hemp plants that cross the 0.3% line in the sand become marijuana plants, federally illegal, and (after approximately the 10% THC mark) psychoactive/intoxicating.

With our industrial hemp-grown CBD, you get a huge portion of the clinically-observed benefit of medical cannabis plants, with none of the illegality or impairment. Equilibria’s CBD is farm-to-home, at the highest quality available in the US market (straight from our 1,100 acre farm in Colorado!). All of our products are lab-tested with results readily available.
