Partner Spotlight: ArtClass Content

BicMedia, now ArtClass Content, first became a valued supporter of Heart to Heart International when its managing partner, Austin Bickford, joined the HHI Board of Directors in 2019.

Bicoastal production company ArtClass acquired Kansas City-based video agency BicMedia in August, and BicMedia now operates as the post-production department, content studio, and Midwest hub of ArtClass.

The amazing team of designers, editors and storytellers have created a multitude of visually impacting and arresting ways to help tell the story of Heart to Heart International.

Using its expertise and talent, it has helped HHI broaden its portfolio of communications. Some of the work includes:

  • Multiple overview videos highlighting HHI’s work with COVID-19 and its work in general
  • Video message from HHI’s CEO at the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, emphasizing HHI’s ability and readiness to respond to the incredibly varied crises a global pandemic would create
  • A media press kit
  • Animations for social media to complement the 2020 Impact Report
  • Rebranding of HHI’s annual fundraiser, complete with new logo

For an organization like HHI, with a small team for marketing and communications, having this support has been invaluable. It enables the message and mission of HHI to reach a wider audience without an increase in overhead costs.

“Austin and everyone at the company have been wonderful to work with,” Kim Carroll, CEO of Heart to Heart International, said. “They have a passion for their work and a true desire to help that shows in everything they do with us. They are eager to help in whatever way they can, and their work is top-notch.”

ArtClass is an incubator for creativity. Combining the full spectrum of strategy, creative, production and post capabilities, we make boundary-breaking content with agencies and brands.

ArtClass, formerly BicMedia, is located in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District and boasts 7,500 square feet of office space along with a 10,000-square-foot soundstage for live-action shoots.
