2017 National Conference: Powering Big Futures

Big Brothers Big Sisters always strives to change the lives of children through matching with caring adults. They have worked with ChappellRoberts to create engaging designs for their Annual Conferences. It has been a privilege to be the main art director for two consecutive years creating an experience for attendees at the conference. In 2017, the theme was Powering Big Futures, which was emphasized by highlighting major cities throughout America, encouraging children to strive for more than they ever imagined. This concept was carried throughout the program book, digital screens, registration desk, door clings, and signage. All of these pieces were created through the use of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects.

2016 National Conference

2016 was ChappellRoberts first National Conference with Big Brothers Big Sisters. The theme was "Moving Forward Together," which was designed using a triangular pattern throughout. What a joy it is to create not only designs, but an actual experience, while continually moving forward together. Our team utilized Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere, and After effects to design signage, digital screens, videos, program books, registration desk, window clings, and the hall of fame area.
