What’s the big idea?
More to the point, what’s your big idea? How will you present it to the world? Since 1996 Bigwig Creative Club has helped clients focus on what they do best: be themselves. To us, you are the Bigwig. And we like to think of our club as a creative collaboration between client, designer and writer that generates lots of great ideas. Our approach is simple and effective: we listen, we create and we deliver. Big time.
We invite you to take a leisurely scroll through our site to see what becoming a Bigwig can do for you.

Tom’s work has appeared in Graphis and Print Magazine and his web sites have been featured in Adobe Create Magazine. He studied graphic design at Penn State University and worked as a creative director in Pittsburgh and Washington, DC, before moving to Maine to start his own business. In his spare time, he enjoys working on his mixed-media collages, photography and experimental cooking.

She has worked as an assistant editor for trade and scientific publications and as a marketing coordinator for an architectural firm. She is currently working on a trilogy of mystery novels set in 1939 about a young woman who dreams of becoming a big-time reporter like her heroine, Nellie Bly.
