A quick note from our Creative Director:
In January, Bright Bright Great turned 10 years old.
Starting as our my personal freelance moniker in 2007, BBG has grown to a multi-million dollar adventure, serving clients around the world and producing amazing creative and tech for all those we have worked with.
It’s been an amazing ride so far and we aren’t planning to quit anytime soon. Thanks to everyone for the support and exciting projects we’ve been a part of over the last decade. Our journey continues.
Creative Director, Founder
Established in 2013, Avondale Type Co. is a design-oriented type foundry based in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago. ATC’s main goal is to create a community where creatives who share a passion for typography can find the tools they need to solve design problems.
The new brand identity represents a step forward for ATC as they prepare for a busy year of creating and promoting a host of new typefaces and begin work on redesigning their website and e-commerce experience for 2016.
This brand will extend into the new digital experience set to launch June 1 of this year.

New York, NY (October 21, 2014) – The winners of The 2014 Davey Awards have been announced by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts today. With nearly 4,000 entries from across the US and around the world, the Davey Awards honors the finest creative work from the best small firms, agencies and companies worldwide. Please visit www.daveyawards.com to view the full winners list.
The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity, the finest small firms, agencies and companies in the world. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock – the sort of thing small firms do each year. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids” who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than big budgets. The Davey Awards is the leading awards competition specifically for smaller firms, where firms compete with their peers to win the recognition they deserve.
The Davey Awards is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms. Please visit www.aiva.org for a full member list and more information.

Bright Bright Great has had the absolute pleasure to work with the fine folks over at Uncle Goose in Grand Rapids, MI over the last five months helping to facilitate the launch of their new 2.0 website. BBG handled not only art direction and front-end development, but also creation of a double CMS system, one for product management and sales and one for retailers as well as introduced the most requested feature, a dynamic “Uncle Goose Create-A-Name.” Due to the absolute spectacular quality and existing brand identity of Uncle Goose’s product it created an amazing platform for BBG to create with.
