Though Ogilvy’s been in business for over 60 years, it’s, in essence, exactly the same company it was when it started. It has always valued quality branding above all else—and for Ogilvy, quality and innovation go hand-in-hand. As future communications upgrades enable the marketing world to better its branding practices, Ogilvy knows it’ll always be prepared to take its projects to the next level.
Ogilvy’s initial reason for coming to Chicago? It wanted to have a hub in the same city as one of its largest clients: Sears. So, in 1976, David Ogilvy asked three Ogilvy leaders to scout Chicago for talent. In the end, Ogilvy started its Chicago agency with 28 Chicago hires and 12 NYC transplants, establishing Ogilvy Chicago as a global business with a Midwestern mindset.
“At Ogilvy Chicago, you’re not only surrounded with smart, creative people—everyone’s also collaborative, and they help set up a learning environment.”
“I tried the dodgeball team for my first couple of months here. It was a lot more intense than I thought, so I’m no longer a dodgeball player—but Ogilvy has lots of extracurricular activities that are really great.”
