In its first year, the Chicago Creative Space Awards was filled with formidable contenders, all vying for the title of coolest and most creative office space in Chicago, and Conversant is proud to announce that we took home the hardware in the 41,000-75,000 square foot category.

Built in 2012, the three-floor office was designed to foster creativity and encourage cross-departmental collaboration which is reflected in its “loft-like” appearance, common of many technology companies. All private offices were developed for maximum efficiency to serve as meeting rooms when they were not in use and leftover corridor spaces were developed as “scrum areas” where teams could gather in bleacher-like seating and project in-progress ad campaigns. “The Chicago office provides the subtle inspiration to collaborate more effectively, think bigger, and work harder every day. The space has fostered a culture of productive creativity that energizes our team and further elevates our work,” says Christine Schufreider, Client Development Specialist.

Drawing on several of Chicago’s neighborhoods for further inspiration (Wicker Park in particular), the office features repurposed timber beams, exposed ceilings, concrete floors, industrial lighting and colorful furniture and artwork that collectively strike a balance between modern and rustic. Account Executive Alejandra Phillips put it quite succinctly: “Plain and simple, I love my office!” This seems to be the consensus amongst Conversant employees in the Chicago office.

“We’re extremely proud of this recognition especially considering all of the great companies in our category. An office setting that fuels creativity and productivity allows us to deliver better results for our clients and enables us to secure the best and brightest people in the industry,” said Ric Elert, President, Conversant. “We are committed to creating opportunities for top talent in Chicago and maintaining a culture and setting that our employees and clients take pride in.”
