Aardman Animations
Offices: Bristol, England
Peter Lord and David Sproxton began their animating partnership in their school days.

In 1976 they established Aardman Animations in Bristol.

Big Idea
Offices: Franklin, Tennessee
Most major media companies today name shareholder value or profitability as their top priority. At Big Idea, their priorities are: people first, products second, profits third. Profiting is like breathing. As humans, they must breathe to live, but they do not live to breathe. As a company, Big Idea must profit to exist, but they will not exist merely to profit. Achieving their goal of building a top four family media brand takes a tremendous amount of capital, but they will never sacrifice the needs of kids or of their employees simply to increase their wealth.
