2014 Effie Award: Most Effective Independent Agency in North America
2014 Gold and Silver Lion winner at Cannes

At C-K, our mission is simple: Make friends, not ads.® It’s how we helped Porsche’s first luxury sedan—the Panamera— become a smashing success; cooked up more than 1.3 million YouTube views for Johnsonville Sausage’s Brattender campaign; and catapulted Corona Extra to America’s #1 import. Our friend-making mindset not only drives our ideas, it also drives our structure. We‘re built without silos or competing interests to truly tap into an ever-expanding range of disciplines, from advertising to SEM/SEO to social to analytics-whatever it takes to create compelling brand experiences. This philosophy has fueled our growth, making C-K the nation’s second largest independent ad agency and placing us among the top 20 advertising and digital firms in the country with more than 500 employees and $1 billion in annual billings; digital alone now accounts for 38% of C-K business. Headquartered in Chicago with offices in New York, Milwaukee and Phoenix, we represent major brands across virtually every industry, including BRP (Ski-Doo, Sea-Doo, Evinrude), Cedar Fair Amusement Parks (Cedar Point, Knott’s Berry Farm and 10 others), Cetaphil, Corona Extra, Edward Jones, Heinz (Ketchup, Smart Ones, Classico, Ore-Ida, Steam n’ Mash), Johnsonville Sausage, Patrón, Peapod, Porsche, Spice Islands and Vitamix. We are all about outcome, not output. And our results prove it. For more information, visit Cramer-Krasselt at
