Although officially established in 2018, ES99 was in the making for several years prior. As Impact's rapid expansion brought more opportunities for optimizing businesses from the inside, it also uncovered a need for these businesses to improve their external presence for their customers' branding & marketing needs. The internal design division at Impact was re-imagined to meet these needs and ES99 was born.

As a full-service boutique agency located in downtown Chicago, our core offerings fall into four main categories: research & strategy, branding, web design & marketing. Our client roster includes everything from B2B manufacturers to B2C CPG brands and everything in between. We're always on the lookout for engaged, collaborative, creative people to bring into the team.


Our internal team is split within these core competencies:

-Creative (strategy, design, ux/ui, copywriting)

-Client management (research, account, digital media & analytics)

-Production (web development & print)

-Sales (business development)
