OUR PHILOSOPHY
at Havas Chicago, we believe brands have to embrace culture - or be forgotten.
Culture is the connection that exist between all of us. It is fluid and flexible. It effects everything we do... and most importantly, culture can be affected by what we do at Havas CHI. We are the student, teacher and creator of culture. As students, we learn what is happening and will happen in culture. As teachers, we inspire others to embrace where culture is going. And as creators, we create ideas that becomes cultural currency. Ideas that people want to play with, pass on and participate with.

Through our unified marketing approach, we build culturally relevant brand experiences that move people to action. We make people care. Make people want. Make people buy.

And make people advocate for our brands. 

BEYOND INTEGRATION. IDEA UNIFICATION.
we are a true hybrid agency marrying below-the-line with above-the-line all under one roof with one management team and one p&l. we began practicing it as a necessity from the ground up and a magical thing happened—creative that is truly accountable to businesses and ourselves.
