A little story about us

Imagination opened with one in-flight magazine and three employees in a loft above a Chicago pizza restaurant back in 1994. Today, we’ve grown to a 45-plus team of strategists, journalists, creators and digital marketers working on content programs across B2B and B2C organizations. We’ve been named content marketing agency of the year and one of the most creative content agencies. (Pizza still helps fuel our creativity.)

We help brands put thought into leadership content for measurable results that matter. What succeeded yesterday doesn’t necessarily work today and may not apply tomorrow. This truth pushes us to continually remain on the forefront of content marketing evolution while staying true to best practices. 

This is how we build great content programs.

Our mission

To create content that connects brands to their audiences in order to deepen relationships and encourage more informed decisions. 

Our leadership

With collective decades of content marketing experience, our executive team drives innovation, creativity and strategic thinking across the organization.
