About Our Company About us:
We've got conference rooms named after dead rock stars, but sometimes we meet at our bar. We have the occasional impromptu jam session. Dogs are welcome, if not encouraged. We don't settle for the first good idea. We actually like each other. We recently bought and renovated a historic building in the West Loop area of Chicago. Our culture is casual, just like our dress code (I draw the line at sweatpants). There are no corner offices, because there are no offices - even for partners. We're a full-service, integrated agency and our clients come from many different sectors: spirits, food, CPG, financial, fashion, services, and more. If you're done with doing the same thing day in and day out, this is the place for you.
