Be yourself

Equality is a fundamental principle for us and we celebrate our differences, emphasizing quality and competence. Our board and ownership reflect a balanced representation of men and women, ensuring diverse perspectives and promoting fairness.

Big Image, history pics

Werner Schäfer falls in love with the idea of blowing up photos into their rightful size, to convey their message and emotion in the best possible way in any given context. As the innovative man he is, he decides to find a process that makes it possible to share this with the world. Read more about Werner’s entrepreneurial journey.

On the Inside



At Big Image, we believe in fostering a supportive and inclusive environment where every colleague feels valued. To enhance interpersonal connections and cross-cultural understanding, we regularly hold a "this is me fika," a twenty-minute session where team members can exchange conversations. This initiative not only strengthens our work culture but also serves as a platform for those learning languages and other cultures. We prioritize sustainability in our social events, one way we achieve this is by cooking our own food and minimizing the use of disposable items. In the same spirit we also offer amenities such as organic and fair-trade coffee, tea and fruits.



At Big Image, we prioritize the well-being and comfort of our staff. From providing equipment assistance, such as loading large textile rolls into machines, to enhancing workplace ergonomics with soft carpets in both the office and production areas. We also foster a sense of community and promote physical health by gathering daily for team stretching exercises. Except from encouraging through health and wellness subsidy, we offer a gym in our studio and organize weekly workouts together. Twice a month our employees can enjoy rejuvenating massages. We prioritize employee well-being through a supportive work environment designed to proactively promote health and prevent illness.


Learning & Education

We believe in continuous learning and provide opportunities for personal and professional growth. Workshops, tools, and information about sustainability are provided every month, empowering our team members with knowledge and skills.

We collaborate with educational institutes to develop educational programs, support faculty and student projects and offer presentations & tours in our studios.

These opportunities are intended to serve both newly arrived foreign-born individuals and individuals who have encountered barriers to employment due to factors such as previous health-related leaves of absence. These internships frequently serve as a stepping stone to full-time employment.
