About Us

We solve business problems and tell stories. A small, independent integrated marketing agency celebrating our 25th year, located in a great space in the Wrigley Building is looking for a key member of the Client Engagement team.

A roll-up-your-sleeves type as we're small and each person wears a lot of hats. No room for hiding or egos. Positive attitude, optimistic at heart, casual, fun, can read a client or situation like a book and proactively bring solutions and opportunities.
