  • At C-K, our mission is simple: Make friends, not ads®. This philosophy has helped fuel seven years of the best sales Porsche has ever had, 28 quarters of record Corona Extra results while the rest of the industry’s major brands are in decline, recording-breaking attendance at Cedar Fair’s amusement parks and similar results for Vitamix and Edward Jones. It’s also how we helped make the BIC Flex 5 the #1 disposable razor.


    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. It has also 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 nearly 500 employees and $900 million in annual billings.


    Headquartered in Chicago with offices in New York and Milwaukee, we represent major brands across virtually every industry, including Benihana, BIC Razors and Stationery, Cedar Fair Amusement Parks (Cedar Point, Knott’s Berry Farm and 10 others), Casa Noble Tequila, Corona Extra, Edward Jones, General Tire, Nikon, Pacifico Beer, Paper and Packaging Board, Porsche, Roundy’s (Pick ‘n Save and Mariano’s) and Vitamix. We are all about outcome, not output. And our results prove it. For more information, visit C-K.com.


    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 tea 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.
