Big Red Rooster is a brand experience consultancy firm that creates the touchpoints, environments, products, and services of tomorrow for the world’s top retailers and consumer brands. We are an interdisciplinary office, which allows us to touch all aspects of an experience —brand experience, strategy, research, insights, innovation, environmental design, visual merchandising, packaging design, marketing communications, digital design and development, and brand and visual identities.

Founded in 2002, our Columbus, OH headquarters has grown and expanded to locations in Atlanta, GA; Phoenix, AZ; and Olympia, WA. Our acquisition by JLL has given us a globally robust platform and project implementation expertise. This positions us—better than ever—to offer our clients full-service with continuity and integrity from insights to strategy, strategy to design, and design to full implementation. With our additional resources, we plan to accelerate our growth to better serve our clients.

Our team’s collective expertise allows us to deliver solutions seamlessly across industries, channels, cultures, and continents. We’re problem solvers, designers, researchers, storytellers, and strategists. We are business consultants who develop the environments, products, packages, and communications that impact brand experience.

Our globally focused senior leadership team’s deep understanding of consumer behavior, paired with a breadth of knowledge and strong peripheral vision, allows us to deliver seamless experiences.

Year after year Big Red Rooster is recognized as a strategic design leader. With experience across all retail channels, we have built strong relationships with some of the world’s leading brands. Our award-winning design and customer experience is the result of dynamic collaboration between our clients, highly experienced senior leadership, and cross-functional teams.
