    About C-K Milwaukee:

    Milwaukee is the birthplace of C-K. Back in 1898, two bicycling enthusiasts—Cody Cramer and Bill Krasselt—started a newsletter about their passion. As that passion became a nationwide craze, advertisers wanted to promote their goods in the newsletter, but most of them didn’t have agencies to help create the ads. Cody and Bill seized the entrepreneurial opportunity and C-K was born.

    Today, that spirit is alive and kicking among our team of seasoned marketers, communications and public relations professionals and top creative talent who serve clients from a variety of industries. Whether we are creating award winning websites for Evinrude’s newest outboard motor or launching major national campaigns for the Paper and Packaging Board, we leverage best-in-class strategies in digital and social media, marketing, advertising and public relations to engage the right audience for each client.

    And, this team loves Milwaukee so much that they are dedicated to giving back to the community. Each year they put countless time, funds and labor into charities and non-profits such as St. John’s Open Door Café, Milwaukee Public Museum, Sojourner Family Peace Center, Movember and several others.
