We Are An Integrated Marketing Consultancy

IN THIS DEPARTMENT THE ONLY NUMBER THAT COUNTS IS 11

Like the guys of Spinal Tap, we’ve been going to 11 since 2008. We dial things up for your brand. On a scale of 1 to 10, we always deliver 11. We go beyond the best. We unleash the unexpected. We elevate, innovate, and radiate. We are a unique department made up of exceptional experts who specialize in strategic consulting, design thinking, integrated marketing, creative innovation and digital strategy. We are a Department of Doers. We match the talent to the task. And we take everything we do to 11.

11 IS WHO WE ARE

We’re picky about the company we keep. We only work with seasoned, senior-level, passionate professionals who are never satisfied with just doing the job. Change agents, innovators, craftspeople, thinkers, doers, dreamers, all driven to take each and every project to the max. Pushing the work to the limit. Taking it to 11. Because that’s the only place worth going to. And we’re a local Chicago agency that harnesses local talent, so our people are always here to tackle any problem at a moment’s notice.

11 IS WHAT WE DO

Dept. 11 is different because we match skilled specialists to marketing and technology projects. That empowers us to train a laser focus on the problem and the solution. As a highly experienced Chicago based consultancy, we confidently service promising startups, award-winning agencies, and established blue-chip companies. Our curated experts and engagement teams are handpicked to solve any problem on any scale. Whether it’s a single assignment, an ongoing project solution, a reinvigoration of a brand, or a transformation of a company, we can marshal the forces and bring them to bear on any challenge you may have. We can also fill freelance needs and full-time support. Our lean methodology allows us to help you ramp up, execute, learn, and adjust at the speed of your business. Ensuring that there are no barriers to taking you past the status quo all the way to 11. Ready to connect with us?

Working with the Dept. 11 team has been a huge help in augmenting our marketing team and bringing in pitch hitters for projects. The ability to choose a curated team to work with (vs. choosing an agency) is highly valuable in our fast moving, high velocity world.”

Christina Kline

Chief Marketing Officer

“Dept. 11 is the first place I call because I know the people that come from there are high caliber, experienced talent. Dept. 11 and their talent know how agencies operate and what to expect (and not to expect). The people I work with at Dept. 11 understand the business and the pressures our teams are under and it does not go unnoticed.”
