We are a team that just keeps swimming
In 1999, three friends joined forces with the ambitious goal of turning Guam’s advertising world upside down. Eighteen years later, Big Fish Creative has established itself as one of the most creative advertising, marketing and design firms on Guam.
We “think outside the bowl” by fusing marketing intelligence, creative solutions and a public relations punch to produce a unique brand presence that stands apart from the clutter. We believe that effective ad campaigns are about communication, not decoration. We pride ourselves in being able to provide maximum impact for our clients with audience-focused messaging packaged in calculating creativity that is delivered on time and within budget.
Big Fish Creative encompasses over a century of experience in graphic design, illustration, photography, public relations, media coordination, creative direction and client services. We are a majority women-owned company with most of our ten employees being young, vibrant, intelligent and energetic women from Guam. Our company has grown in the last decade and a half in size, clientele and revenue. Still, we continue to make providing personal customer service a top priority.
