Our mission is to advance your mission.

Advocate Creative was born out of our desire to amplify the impact of nonprofits. We spent years honing our craft in the service of businesses ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies. But it wasn’t enough to do great work. We wanted to do great work in the service of meaningful causes.

In 2012, Advocate Creative opened its doors (to a teeny-tiny office) in Chicago. Today, we remain united by our midwestern roots and work ethic, but we serve nonprofits around the world from offices on the east and west coasts.

The Core Advocates

We refuse to accept the world as it is and have dedicated our lives to making it better.

Our Partners

Our extended team consists of technical and creative experts with diverse specialties and capabilities.

Every project is unique and requires a unique skill set to deliver the best results. We evaluate the needs of each project and assemble the right team for the job. Some projects need three of us; others need seven. Regardless of the team size, you can expect the attentiveness of our core leadership combined with the unparalleled talents of the project team.

What We Believe

Design is a force for good.

It’s why we exist. We believe in leveraging the power of design to fight injustice, promote equality, provide access to education, preserve our planet, and advance social justice.

You are making a difference.

We believe in what you do so much it’s all we do. We don’t work with nonprofits on the side as a way to “give back” because we believe you deserve 100% of our time and effort.

Together we can change the world.

We partner exclusively with people creating positive change. Let’s build a better world together.

How We Work

Trust we’re all experts

You’re the expert on your organization; we bring the nonprofit branding and design chops. Together, we’ll create something great.

Get curious

We listen and ask questions to understand how we can help move your mission forward.

Commit to collaboration

Our approach to problem solving is highly participatory. We collaborate with you to align on strategy and uncover a successful solution for your audience.

The work AC created for us has opened doors, rallied our base and been a calling card at speaking events. They understood and communicated our vision, passion and ethos. I can say without reservation that the Advocate Creative team is the absolute best at what they do.”
