Great Big Story


Great Big Story


This story starts with Ben Whitla, the Creative Director of Great Big Story, and his search for a visual punctuation mark for their fantastic video stories. A long-time follower of Steely Works on Dribbble, Whitla wanted art that would further elevate their five content buckets: Human Condition, Frontiers, Planet Earth, Flavors and Origins. To complete the magic, an animator added motion to our whimsical designs, delivering the perfect ending.


“Steely’s illustrations are the defining factor for each of our content verticals – as we built Great Big Story from the ground up, the illustrations helped us build strong brand recognition quickly and distinctively. Oh, and he’s a rad guy.”
