Chadwick Parker: Co-Founder of Big Idea Design

My NativeAdVantage:


Our company, Big Idea Design, LLC is a crowd-funded company that started back in 2011 after our first project on kickstarter. Before starting our own company we both worked together helping other people and companies manufacture their products. Joe and I share passions for BBQ, kickstarter, titanium, and making useful and versatile every-day objects to name a few. We believe that our company’s success can be credited to the many wonderful people who took a chance on us in the past, and those who continue to support what we do today.

What’s Your NativeAdVantage:

What do you do best?

I would say that one of our strengths is that we maintain a strong curiosity about the world and objects that surround us everyday and enjoy looking for creative ways to make them even better.

What makes you the best?

We have never actually focused on being the “best” because to us, that doesn’t seem to be a sustainable long-term goal in our fast-paced competitive world. Instead, we do our best to stay flexible, learn from our mistakes, constantly experiment, ask “what if” and show our customers that we care about them.  

How will you become the best?

We know what tasks we are good at and what tasks to ask other professionals to do for us. Freeing up our time to focus on our faithful customers and designing products always seems to bring healthy & positive results.

What are your aspirations?

Personal: Continue to learn, grow, and show people love as a person, father, friend, and follower of Christ.

Business: To continue to love what we make, constantly improve, and encourage creativity by asking “what if”.

What fascinates you?

The everyday small object and tools that people carry with them through their day.
