New Work: Brand, Strategy, Digital Experience and Print Collateral for Wild Bum

Bright Bright Great is excited to share the launch of Wild Bum, the next big adventure for travelers seeking exclusive curated experiences.

Wild Bum Brand Identity

Wild Bum is a modern, online global marketplace that evokes a sense of adventure and well-being! Their mission is to shift the mindset around travel. Travel is not a luxury, rather it is essential to our health and well-being!

The project began as a one woman show with a passion for travel, community and adventure. Spending days, if not weeks, researching what makes for a meaningful travel experience, she began selling her travel guides. She saw how some people get excited about researching for travel, while others get completely overwhelmed.

Now, there is an online marketplace that unites both those who love to research travel and those who do not, creating one big, wild global community!

New Work: Wright & Ditson

Bright Bright Great is delighted to announce the launch of Wright & Ditson’s new brand identity and web store, wrightandditson.com.Wright Ditson Desktop Landing Page BBG

Wright and Ditson is the third and final brand identity and website project of three American Needle brands that BBG has relaunched.

Bright Bright Great was tasked with creating a new brand and website for Wright and Ditson that connected the company to the American Needle brand portfolio while making the new Wright and Ditson visually distinct enough to separate it from both American Needle and Red Jacket.

BBG designed the new brand identity and web store, developed the website, and did lifestyle photography for the site as part of the project.

Apprenticeship Recap – Margaux Delapierre

Our Apprentice, Margaux Delapierre, recently returned to Paris after completing her Brand Strategy Apprenticeship with BBG. After spending 6 months with the team in our Chicago-office, we asked her to recap her time with us.
Working for the BBG crew (and in the USA) was a very new experience for me. I didn’t know what to expect in flying to Chicago but I’m not disappointed. From day 1, BBG considered me a full-fledged member of the team, not only as an intern, but as a part of the family.
Mags2
Through my 6 months, I struggled, learned, improved skills and more. Below are three incredibly important aspects I learned to succeed!
Pay Attention to Details
Not working in my native language has been a great experience for me. Every day, creating content for news and events, writing blogs for BBG’s internal brands and handling social media in English pushed me to understand tone and always watch for the small details.
Communicate
Being a part of a small agency like BBG was also a first for me. I like the fact that everybody communicates daily with everyone else. The lines of communication are always open.
One thing I find particularly valuable at BBG is that we debrief on every active and upcoming project each morning. This is the great way to receive an overview of all projects and for sharing ideas as they come up.
Communication is the success key for agencies and BBG understands this very well.
Ask Questions
If you need advice, ask for it. Everyone is here to help you succeed. In the end, asking will save time and keep you on a stronger path, so don’t wait if something is unclear, just ask.
These past 6 months helped me to learn more about myself, my career goals and taught me to never stop learning. Thanks again BBG!
You can find Margaux Delapierre on LinkedIn!

New Work: Great Lakes Home

Bright Bright Great is delighted to announce the launch of Great Lakes Home’s e-commerce store. BBG created a wholistic brand and e-commerce website for Great Lakes Home as they open their first physical location at 2005 S Halsted in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.

The goal from the outset of the project was to create a brand that at once felt lived-in and modern, a visual complement to the tagline “Historical Modern.” The brand aesthetic centered around a mysterious sea monster and a ghostly ship captain; our challenge was to build a narrative around that story that also rooted the company in the handmade home goods that the company is selling. This process started with constructing a narrative around a fictional family that encompassed what the brand was trying to capture in terms of their overall aesthetic, sense of place in the Upper Midwest, and general personality.

Great Lakes Home Brand BBG

From there, we set about building the e-commerce experience on Shopify. Starting with the blueprint of a house, we built the navigation structure around the idea of furnishing the rooms of one’s home, employing Avondale Type Co.‘s ATC Harris typeface to reinforce the architectural sensibility. This helps the store to make a statement about objects that visitors might find unusual, and helps users to shop specifically by the room they are intending to furnish. We also had the pleasure of working with Anna Knott and Nathan Kirkman from Camera Department, who provided beautiful photographs with which to populate the site and store.

The finished product is a beautiful website and brand that pays homage to the ideas that laid the groundwork for the store while providing an exciting and highly-immersive online shopping experience. We’re thrilled to have been a part of this project and we’re excited to get started on the hard work of promoting and growing the brand alongside the team at Great Lakes Home in the months and years to come!
