Best Advertising Agencies in Chicago Top 20 Agencies You Need to Know Top 20 Marketing Agencies 2017


You’ve put great deal of time, human capital and money into crafting your brand. Invested in style guides, positioning statements and taglines. Spent a good portion of your budget on crafting the perfect advertising campaign. But inevitably, whether it’s your web presence, intranet or internal applications, or new mobile application, your user experience design determines whether those investments convert to measureable returns. 

We’re Magnani, a digital agency designed specifically to help challenger brands create the most powerful and engaging strategies and creative. In Chicago for more than thirty years, we’ve helped mid-sized companies realize stronger returns from their brand and online presence, including digital and mobile strategies that amplify and accelerate initiatives and help them outsmart, outmessage, outmarket, and steal the most profitable customers from their larger competitors.



Great UX begins with the user.

Strong performing brands understand it’s not about what you want to sell or promote, it’s about creating relevant and continual engagement with your customers. Using our scaleable THINK-PLAN-ACT-INTERACT process, we help you identify your most profitable and desirable customers, understand their needs and align them with your business strategies and goals. Our combined strengths of strategy and execution ensure your targets get the most relevant and most engaging messages when and where they need to on the channels where they’re most likely to see them. And, we can help you create a continuous dialogue and level of engagement, so when your target is ready to buy, you’re the first brand they think of and more likely, have in-hand. Something they want to go to and use, time and time again, ultimately increasing user engagement and tangibly impacting your growth.
