We’re Magnani, a digital agency in Chicago, that helps challenger brands make their mark across the nation and around the globe. For more than thirty years we’ve helped mid-sized companies realize stronger returns from their brand and campaigns by amplifying and accelerating initiatives and helping them outsmart, outmessage, outmarket, and steal the most profitable customers from their larger competitors.



Because the strongest connections begin with great creative. 

Our creative strategies are as distinctive as our clients and the customers they need to connect with. Our research-based THINK-PLAN-ACT-INTERACT process ensures creative is founded on a solid understanding of who your audience is, and how best we can engage them, combined with the vision and goals you’ve established for your organization. We combine all of this information with an informed understanding of the competitive landscape, emerging technology trends, and relevant industries to put together a holistic, integrated strategy and a compelling, benefit-driven, creative identity that engages users, speaks to distribution channels, allows for real-time optimization, and provides a single, cohesive, and powerful message.
