About Our Company Imagination is the leader in content-driven relationship marketing. Tell us who you'd like to reach, and we'll show you how to establish or strengthen that relationship in order to achieve your business goals. We'll engage your clients, members, employees or prospects with the right content delivered the right way: print or digital, audio or video, podcasts, webcasts, blogs or email, magazines or digimags.

At Imagination, we are passionate about delivering innovative and quality work to our customers. We work hard, and were proud of what we create. But we also like to relax and celebrate our accomplishments. Whenever our new business development team lands a new account, our president bangs a gong and we grab our champagne glasses and head to the conference room for some bubbly. Throughout the year, we go to baseball games, walk for charity, work out in our private on-site gym, and throw the best annual holiday party in the West Loop.

We know how to work together and how to play together; it's obvious that there is an energy and camaraderie here that makes us a cohesive team. We hope that you'll explore employment opportunities with Imagination. After all, how many offices do you know of that have a gong in their foyer?

At Imagination, we grow relationships so you can grow your business. Come grow with us.
