Designer Callin Fortis primarily known for designing and branding the international and award-winning Crobar nightclubs presents Bigtime Design Studios: a seamless combination of fashion, music, branding and design consulting. Bigtime design studios specializes in high concept high style public space environments.

The studio's recent projects include design for Morgan's Hotel Group's
Mondrian South Beach, a dirty disco re-imagining and build-out of the Cameo Theater (for which BTDs received a nightclub interior design award nomination and won the "Best Nightclub Design Renovation Award" and a full scale re-branding of UK dance music institution Gatecrasher. Bigtime has also completed numerous projects including, Ristorante Angelina, Exit, Frank's, Glow, Hi Tops, Kaboom, Neo, Oo-La-La!, Tequila Roadhouse, Vinyl, America's Backyard, Watusi and Exit 66.

Most recently, BTDs worked as designers on the historic Betsy Ross hotel on ocean drive as well as a 10-day make over of the iconic Flamingo North Tower Lobby. Though purely a temporary fix, the Flamingo project showcased Bigtime’s ability to tell a story with limited resources and time.

The common thread in all Bigtime work is the sociology of good design. "People might ask what kind of social or political dislocations our designs represent," says Fortis. "If you look around any significant design you will find that successful space is interpreted as a socio-political monologue, where each user reacts with whatever emotions they already possess". Bigtime Design is a collaborative studio — a team of creative artists, designers, and staging professionals. The studio utilizes a unique design ethos where oversized objects create the experience, while the human-size details evoke a personal connection and create a lasting memory. "We encourage design to react with you, not to you," says Fortis. Read Less
