What We Do

Whether it's interactive, motion graphics, HD video, branding, copywriting or experiential—our goal is to make you look good.

We strive to present you with exciting, innovative options that will grab your attention and drive your business. We never settle for just one solution, because with today's media fragmentation there's never just one. We look at each piece of marketing and communication strategy as part of a larger jigsaw puzzle. We'll give you the individual pieces as options and then show you how they all fit together to look like the picture on the box.

Who We Are

Manning is a full-service, digital creative agency.

In plain English, this means we're a creative agency that does web design, video production or anything else that appears on a screen. Yes, we're a hybrid. A hyphenate. A mutt, if you will. But our diversity of talents as designers, developers, producers, writers and editors is also our greatest strength. We struggled a bit to come up with the right moniker to describe what we do, but the bottom line is we're an agency that uses design and technology to solve your communications problems.

How We Got Here

From video tape to the mobile web, we adapt to emerging technology.

What began back in 1985 as a two-person video production company has evolved over time to include web design and other interactive services. Today, Manning is one of Chicago's most respected multi-platform agencies and has been honored with awards including Webbys, Emmys, Tellys and Adobe's Site of the Day Award. That's why Fortune 500 companies and leading non-profits continue to work with Manning year after year.
