About Us

We are unapologetic chameleons. Not for our ability to blend in, but for our ability to adapt to the situation or opportunity. Notoriously resistant of categorization. Politely unwilling to neatly fit into anyone's pigeonhole.

Look around. Million dollar TV commercials intermingling with under $10K in-house productions. Plain old shovels keeping company with rich web experiences. Mobile campaigns passing $700 one-to-one mailings in the halls. The juxtaposition of opposites keeps our minds open. Hi-fi and lo-fi make eyes at one another in our elevators. Our CEO plays ping-pong with interns.

Are we a creative boutique or the Midwestern outpost of advertising's largest and most-awarded network? Are we a digital shop? A design house? Brand shepherds? TV specialists? Print craftsmen? Yes.

Can't we be all that?

We won a Lion in Cannes for a doorknob hanger. We've relaunched global brands with budgets closer to one billion than one million. Been recognized by the mayor for local non-profit efforts. Even shot with Michael Bay, yet didn't blow anything up.

We've been there and done that, but can't wait to do it all over again. Only different this time. Even our most time-tested solutions must constantly be reinvented - never merely reheated and re-served.

It's why this page will never be the same for long. Fresh matters. Today's answers won't solve tomorrow's questions. And just because everyone's clamoring for the next great social media campaign, that won't keep us from recommending a sandwich board if we think it will work better.

Whatever brings you here, thanks for coming. And come back anytime.

Our Approach

There's a saying around here. "Clients have a right to love their advertising." We like it because it strips away any expected agency ego and leaves no misunderstanding whom we're here to serve. Now that's not to say it doesn't get messy. In fact, we're shocked when it doesn't. No matter how sound our research, planning and strategic thinking the creative process is always an exhilarating leap into the unknown.

That's what keeps the experiment interesting. We roll into our red brick factory with a daily determination to create brilliant, surprising, hardworking consumer experiences in the name of great brands. Brands we immerse ourselves in. Brands we believe in. If we didn't, none of this would be worth doing.

There never has been, nor ever will be a formula in this business, but that's as close to one as it gets for us. Hard work. Talented people. Leaps of faith. Incredible results. Repeat as necessary.

Our Culture

We're a full-service, globally connected, integrated advertising agency with the spirit of an upstart. Regardless of the size of our staff or billings, we'll always be small at heart. For 17 years, we've been rallying behind one another to create award-winning work that builds brands and lasting client relationships.

And we make it all happen out in the open. With only two doors in our building, one for our CFO and one for our Director of HR, we keep the exchange of ideas flowing face-to-face. We don't buy into the bigger fences, better neighbors theory. All lots are the same size, too. No land barons. No inequality.

That translates to how we approach every job and every client. The same. All our energy. All our resources. Every time. Of course, we'd rather show you than tell you. The invitation is always open. With any luck, our baseball tickets may even be available.
