The capital is a letterform that tells our story. The story of an organization that creates connections that matter. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida.  When the “B” is used alone, we call it The Capital. It is a powerful symbol of the real-life match that creates a whole greater than the sum of its parts.


This idea represents the story of a Little and their parents or guardians aligning with our organization to build momentum toward reaching their full potential. The elements of the lowercase b stand as a powerful symbol but do not tell the complete story.


With the addition of Bigs, the equal parts create meaningful intersection. As the upper piece of the B is added, the relationship balances and becomes stronger and bigger.
