About Big Picture - The Give Back Initiative

We will never lose sight...

$10,000 of gratis marketing and promotional services for one SA charity, not-for-profit or volunteer organisation

There are so many incredible, committed, passionate and hard working charities, not-for-profit and volunteer organisations in our South Australian community, and sadly, many have limited funds available to invest in their marketing and promotions.

That’s where Big Picture – the ‘Give Back’ Initiative can help. Every year, we ‘give back’ to one South Australian organisation by providing gratis services up to the value of $10,000.

Big Picture – the ‘Give Back’ Initiative was launched in 2012 by Quisk Design; providing gratis design services to a South Australian organisation. After a strong show of support we continued the initiative in 2013 and 2014. This year, in 2015 we are thrilled to have Mackbel Films and Print Solutions, two wonderful South Australian businesses, also support the initiative by providing gratis services.

The successful recipient may be eligible to receive one or more of the following services:

  • website design and development
  • print design
  • social media consulting
  • 1-2 minute online promotional video
  • $2,000 of printing services

Nominations are open in the month of July at which time we call on the South Australian community to nominate their favourite and/or most deserving charity, not-for-profit or volunteer organisation.

2015 Recipient

Foundation 21We are proud to announce that the 2015 Big Picture – The ‘Give Back’ Initiative has been awarded to foundation 21.

foundation 21’s aim is to enhance and support existing services and to raise the public’s awareness of the positive contributions individuals with Down syndrome make in our community. The team of volunteers are dedicated to helping ease the financial burden placed on families who have a child with Down syndrome. Without financial assistance some families may never have access to the extra services that their child requires.

The Quisk Design, Mackbel Films and Print Solutions teams are very excited to work with Foundation 21 to help realise their marketing goals and potential promotions.

Big Picture – The Give Back Initiative will re-open in July 2016.

Backpacks 4 SA Kids – 2012 recipients of ‘Big Picture – The Give Back Initiative’

When we applied for the grant with the ‘Big Picture – The Give Back Initiative’ in 2012 we had a setup of a charity that could make a huge difference to the kids of South Australia, but no understanding of how to be able to promote what we thought we could achieve or how anyone else could help.  In our minds we were the core of a concept without the shell, the presentation nor any finesse.   To any charity the presentation is essential, we needed to be friendly and stand out above all the other amazing charities wanting help and wanting to be noticed.  Our basic requirements included Logo, Website, Flyers, Facebook Page, Twitter, Banners, Flags and bag tags all of which needed to be visually acceptable for adults, children, corporate business and the public.  We needed to be eye catching, child friendly, informative but not aggressive, to be able to raise awareness and realistically we needed it all and we started with nothing.

The team at Quisk Designs grasped the concept of our charity, they worked on the essentials of what we are, who we were aiming to help and also towards the people that could help us make a difference. They provided us with not only the presentation, they educated us in marketing, supported us, guided and groomed us to achieve bigger and better things than we ever believed possible, because they believe in the causes they choose for the Big Picture – The Give Back Initiative. You could tell from the first meeting this isn’t just a job for them; this is a way of making a difference to their community.  They see like their name suggests…’The Big Picture’ of what a difference our community can make when we work together.  I cannot possibly recommend them highly enough. The entire team created an atmosphere, environment and setting for our charity to thrive. We started helping 54 kids with backpacks in 2011 before being recipients of the “Big Picture – The Give Back Initiative’ and are now going to easily help over 2000 kids in 2014.  Our Facebook page was launched in October of 2012 with our new logo and has now reached nearly 3000 ‘likes’, our website has received acknowledgement from international supporters who not only loved our cause, but the way it was presented.  Our logo is eye catching for the corporate and adult followers, but friendly enough not to scare the children who we are reaching out to.  The sky is the limit now that the Quisk team have paved our way and we can’t wait to achieve everything they believe we can.  Thank you so much for all of your talent and guidance.
