Published on .


An open, loft-style office space in Chicago's gritty West Loop houses this young (launched in 2005, with an average employee age of 29) but growing independent shop with a hefty client roster, including Sharpie, Kimberly-Clark and ConAgra.

Employees enjoy perks such as meal subsidies, free parking and cellphone reimbursement, but the big draw is its profit-sharing program, which results in substantial annual checks for every employee.
