Everything You Could Ever Want to Know

In 1985, we were founded with a mission to create marketing that was smart, engaging and unexpected. Today, we work with some of the world’s biggest brands, and it’s all thanks to strategy that enlightens, creative that connects and clients who truly get it.

We are a full-service agency with expertise in foodservice, B2B and consumer marketing. We are the title member of the Marlin Network, a group of complementary creative service agencies located in the Midwest.


  • Chris Flagg

    Chris Flagg


    The best thing about Chris is dependability. You can always count on him to be loud. Like really freaking loud.

  • Merry Tucker

    Merry Tucker

    Account Service


    The best thing about Merry is her love of home state Wisconsin cheese. Like, this girl really loves her cheese and will cut you for anything less than a curd.

  • KaiLi Freeman

    KaiLi Freeman

    Account Service


    The best thing about KaiLi is that she’s as swift as the coursing river, with all the force of a great typhoon. With all the strength of a raging fire, she’s as mysterious as the dark side of the moon.

  • Sarah Goble

    Sarah Goble

    Account Service


    The best thing about Sarah is that she can remember eating cottage cheese and cantaloupe in front of a commercial for Suzanne Summer’s Thigh Master 20 years ago, but she can’t remember what she had for breakfast this morning… or why her abs hurt so bad.

  • Megan Ouhl

    Megan Ouhl

    Account Service


    She learned to recite the alphabet backwards in like 3 seconds. Practical real-world application? Still working on that. Zyxwvutsrqponmlkjihgfedcba

  • Grace Beesley

    Grace Beesley

    Account Service


    The best thing about Grace is she’s a full-time bollocks buster as a part-time Cross Fit coach. Singing to the tune of Classical Gas, she won’t let off that you’re weak, unworthy, and tires were made for lifting, not rolling.

  • Natalie O’Leary

    Natalie O’Leary

    Account Service


    The best thing about Natalie is that she’s a twin. The worst thing about Natalie is there aren’t just two of her… but eight. At least we think so: We’re not sure if she means eight sets of twins or if she’s a member of an octopod.

  • Abby Gust

    Abby Gust



    The best thing about Abby is the time she was on Jersey Shore. In the background. Maybe. Apparently, Vinnie shook her hand which shook Abby to the depths of her soul… or loins — we can’t tell.

  • Emily Dale

    Emily Dale

    Account Service


    The best thing about Emily is that she has a masters in trash talking and a PhD in office pranking. Oh, and she works here in her spare time.

  • James Kaminski

    James Kaminski

    Account Service


    The best thing about James is he’s never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you.

  • Elizabeth Howard

    Elizabeth Howard

    Account Service


    The best thing about Elizabeth is that she can kick the crap out of chopsticks. With one hand.

  • Megan Shiver

    Megan Shiver



    The best thing about Megan is her love of animals and children. In fact, she was a preschool teacher for 5 years. She’s a perfect fit to put up with us.

  • Matt Pendergrass

    Matt Pendergrass



    The best thing about Matt is he thinks he smokes the absolutely best tri-tip in all the land, just like our other Matt. Must be a Matt thing.

  • Halie Branson

    Halie Branson



    The best thing about Halie Branson is her vast sweater collection and the endless possibilities to mispronounce her name. That’s HEY-LEE BRAN-SUN to you, punk.

  • Maggie Sholes

    Maggie Sholes



    The best thing about Maggie is her obsession with all things ~*mYsTiCaL*~. Her spare time is filled with amateur tarot readings and a lot of loud complaining about Mercury being in retrograde.

  • Tess Devine

    Tess Devine



    The best thing about Tess is that she once ate 12 tacos in 17 minutes in order to get a free tattoo. She regrets nothing.

  • Kayla Jones

    Kayla Jones

    Account Service


    The best thing about Kayla is her bad-ass Mustang. Actually BOTH her bad-ass Mustangs — separated by 40 years and a thousand burnouts.

  • Sheri Abernathy

    Sheri Abernathy



    The best thing about Abernathy is she is still evolving. She can wiggle her ears at will, an evolutionary trait now completely useless to humans.

  • Ashley Bush

    Account Service


    The best thing about Ashley is that she has a secret celeb crush on Bob Saget. Orrr maybe that’s the worst thing about Ashley…

  • Cody Cash

    Cody Cash



    The best thing about Cody is that “Cody Takes Your Business Seriously™”

  • Curt Bussen



    The best thing about Curt? Hockey. Look it up.

  • Vanessa Brandt

    Vanessa Brandt

    Account Service


    The best thing about Vanessa is that her mom works in a coal mine. No, really… Her mom works in coal mine and wears coal miner boots and drives the biggest dump truck you’ve never driven.

  • Elizabeth Brooks

    Account Service


    The best thing about Elizabeth is that she can lick her elbow. Did you just read that? Elizabeth… can lick… her elbow. Makes you wonder what elbows taste like?

  • Nora Hiatt

    Nora Hiatt



    The best thing about Nora is her vast knowledge of Disney films and ability to say all kinds of naughty things in Spanish.

  • Quentin Brown

    Quentin Brown



    The best thing about Quentin is he keeps changing his profile picture and this text and no one notices.

  • Shelbey Stockton

    Shelbey Stockton

    Account Service


    The best thing about Shelbey is her ability to mix well with clients. Running a close second is her ability to mix drinks and get the party started.

  • Sam Pyle



    The best thing about Sam is that no matter how many children he has, he will always have more toys than all of them combined.

  • Matt Rose

    Matt Rose



    The best thing about Matt is, his whole family knows how to call the shots.

  • Brian Collins

    Brian Collins



    The best thing about Brian is his absolute belief that any civilization that had felt the need to create detailed instructions for the use of toothpicks has lost its head and he’ll have nothing to do with it.
