The Expression of Ideas

Conjure is a firm dedicated to developing creative, targeted communications that enhance our clients’ presence and bring their message to life.

Strategic analysis and market data alone cannot create distinction at the point of contact. Experience, intuition, creativity, and brand development expertise all inform the successful project or program. We believe that an in-depth understanding of our clients’ business, industry and objectives is paramount to supporting and strengthening their brand and business message.

Time and capital are more precious than ever. Achieving tangible results efficiently is critical. From international corporations to non-profit institutions, Conjure’s success is evidenced by its enduring client relationships.

Let’s start a conversation
Located in Chicago, but we do work all over the nation. From Fortune 100’s to non-profits, we apply the same critical thinking, strategy and creative design differentiation to all projects and clients.

Mile Markers

Before we do anything, we listen. Through clear communications and digging questions, we gain a deep understanding of our clients’ business situation. Then we watch their competition, what they do, how they do it and where they put their flag in the ground. We look to position our clients in a place where the competition is not, and with a message that is genuine and authentic.

1 — Observe situation

2 — Interview staff

3 — Understand the audience

4 — Establish goals

5 — Create timeline

Here is where the problem solving gets rolling. We take our understanding of our client’s market realities and explore ways to differentiate from the competition. We work past preconceived notions to fresh ideas and new realities. The questions don’t stop, they just get more focused.

1 — Competitive visual audit

2 — Investigate examples

3 — Incorporate research

4 — Collaborative brainstorming

5 — Discuss opinions

6 — Message development

Every project and client is unique. The structure of our work takes many forms. Whether it’s a white paper, print piece, website, or broadcast, no two executions are alike.

1 — Develop ideas

2 — Design concepts

3 — Project specifications

4 — Present prototype concepts

5 — Gather feedback

6 — Refine and approve

We build off of an agreed-upon plan, structure and message. Conjure delivers famously detailed prototypes, specifications and production schedules intended to uncover problems well before we reach this expensive and time-sensitive stage. We take great pride in our work by managing every process from art creation to messaging, physical construction to user experience testing, consistency to differentiation.

1 — Implement final solution

2 — Monitor quality

3 — Test and confirm

4 — Turn over deliverables

Communication is an everchanging landscape. In addition to monitoring what we have built, we are always looking for ways to extend the conversation, broaden our clients’ reach and assure return on investment.

1 — Track analysis

2 — Chart against goals

3 — Outline next steps
