Torque has always been a brand positioning and marketing agency in Chicago. That is not to say we haven't changed over the past 24 years — we’ve hopped nimbly from digital tool to marketing innovation, keeping up with the Jones'. But amidst all the Darwinian change, we've stuck to our core passion — digital tools and the facilitation of brand emergence. Torque is creatively driven, strategically grounded and maniacally focused on marketing service.
The Masi brothers started in a dusty attic in Chicago with a Macintosh II, identical pony tails and a lot of determination. They learned quickly that impeccable delivery was paramount and in 1996 we hired our first full-time digital designer/programmer and added a web offering. We moved to Chicago’s West Loop and focused on the web to market our clients. We embraced brand strategy and integrated marketing campaigns as part of our offering. In 2011 we added social media marketing and then moved our work to the cloud. We’ve served many great clients and have delivered a rich portfolio of noteworthy results. We look forward to sharing all this with you over a beer or coffee some day.
During our 24 year journey, we've experienced hard knocks and high-points. We’ve been fortunate to have hired many talented people and to have received guidance from sage marketing advisors. Without these committed people, we would not have an agency of such substance. People have been important to us, and every year we look for the new inspirational people to help us grow. After all, our culture is what inspires us to thrive.
In the end, we know we are curious listeners and discoverers. Good marketing, creative thinking and invention are built on a bedrock of insight. Marketing is anything but constant and we always incorporate new information as we navigate the ever changing world for our clients. We are also grace under pressure. When the going gets tough we bear down, keep our heads about us and enjoy the ride. But above all, we are committed to delivering excellent work and extraordinary experiences for our clients.
