SEE OUR WORK
NorthShore University HealthSystem is one of the largest hospital networks in the region. Working with 88, NorthShore decided on a campaign that would tout its advanced technological capabilities along with the personal attention given to each and every patient. We landed on an overarching theme that encompassed NorthShore’s medical expertise and compassionate care: “Healthcare for what’s next.” That theme has been supported by a number of advertising campaigns, including multiple broadcast television spots.

The American Veterinary Medical Association, the nation’s third-largest member organization, contacted us needing a total brand overhaul. In its 150-year history, the AVMA had never undertaken a major rebranding project. It was time. The makeup of the veterinary profession was undergoing massive changes, and the AVMA needed to better reflect its members. We delivered a new logo and tagline, new visual system and new communications materials. Our relationship with the AVMA is ongoing, and we have done similar rebranding work for the AVMA’s sister organizations, AVMA PLIT and AVMA LIFE (formerly AVMA GHLIT).

CEFCU is a credit union, offering all the services of a bank, plus a member-focused approach to doing business. They have long said they’re not a bank, they’re better. We breathed life into that claim with refreshingly simple TV spots, outdoor and digital advertising.

How many coins in the money jar? To be honest, we didn’t count.
The Libman Company, a household cleaning supply company, approached 88 looking for a better way to reach its national audience. After first responding with a redesigned site, we integrated a targeted full-service social media campaign and digital advertising to create an immersive online experience for Libman’s core audience. And, after that, we helped bring Libman into the world of broadcast television advertising.

Cornerstone came to us in need of an update to its online appearance. Since so many diners use their mobile devices to discover new restaurants and make reservations, it was essential that each Cornerstone website be responsive from desktop to tablet to smartphone. We designed, programmed and launched 11 websites that not only lived up to their restaurant namesakes but also gave Cornerstone the much-needed ability to update content so they can always keep things fresh.

Once dubbed “the Ellis Island of the Midwest,” Chicago’s Maxwell Street was for nearly a century a cultural and commercial landmark. Today, the history of Maxwell Street is preserved for future generations through the Maxwell Street Foundation, and to help them further their mission, we took up the cause of MSF pro bono in 2016. Our comprehensive rebrand consisted of a new logo, completely redesigned website, fresh stationery and even MSF-branded apparel, including custom socks, t-shirts and hats.
