Who we are:

What we do:

Big Idea is a St. Paul, MN creative service company with a foundation that is deeply rooted in the sign, print, and photographic arenas.  Our team is full of good people. Professional.  Honest.  Creative. We are locally owned with a solid core of thinkers. Our creative silo is full of big ideas allowing our team the great vantage point of delivering results that make you, your products and your business stand out.

Big Idea delivers creative business identity and strategic visual branding services for small businesses and organizations.  We do this by producing a combination of creative skills:  conceptualizing, unique design, professional photography, print collateral, and extensive sign production and applications.  Our products and services cover a wide range with logo development, printed products,  signs & banners, and corporate and legal photography taking the lead. 

Our leadership has been passionate about creative design and photography for over 30 years.  Surrounding ourselves with like-minded professionals keeps these passions alive. Each new project we take on allows us to flex our creative muscles and, in turn, promotes dynamic brand and image awareness for our clients. Being a part of the building process for so many small businesses, and organizations is truly rewarding and continues to energize us for the next creative challenge.
