Layer One Media launches Chicago Office!


By: Screenmag

Digital-focused agency Layer One Media recently opened the doors to their new 5,000 sq. ft. loft space in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood.

Established in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, the agency has created and developed strategic digital marketing tools, intrepid concepts and user experiences for local and national clients and brands such as Dean & DeLuca, GE Healthcare, Kohler, Sargento, Northwestern Mutual and Subzero.

President Brody Buss, Creative Director Jason Reimer and Director of Business Development Ryan Janecek lead the charge for the competitive “third coast” player positioned to remarkably extend and diversify their client outreach.

“The Chicago market is perfect for a creative, niche, ahead-of-the-curve, digital shop like ours,” says Buss. “Having access to collaborate with agencies and brands in a bigger market allows us to focus on what we do best.”

Layer One Media has dedicated two years planning the expansion, seeking to collaborate with agencies, connect with clients and brands, and to support campaigns that will leverage and increase the company’s national presence. The studio has already begun developing relationships with projects in the pipeline including a high-traffic Facebook app for a major consumer brand.

“As a boutique digital shop, in order to grow we need forward thinking partners, clients and opportunities,” states Buss. “Chicago has great advertising agencies that are those forward thinking partners, but they might not have all the digital resources to deliver and that’s where we would like to come in.”
