8/4/14 - New nature-inspired Synthesis website live

As a technology company providing solutions to the financial services industry, Synthesis aimed to speak to marketing managers in a way that appealed to their creative side while also highlighting how Synthesis’ services make their lives easier. We developed a brand idea that hinged on how Synthesis streamlines the communication process. To bring this to life, we were inspired by their current logo (which includes a piece of paper) to incorporate elements from nature, illustrated via origami. This approach set Synthesis apart both visually while also establishing an ownable brand idea unlike all the rest.

5/28/2013 - Steve Gaither to Speak on AllTwitter Conference Panel

What is Twitter? Sure, it sounds like a silly question, but how would you answer? Seemingly a simple tool where one sends updates on what they’re currently doing or eating, Twitter has become much more complex since its first tweet via SMS. So what is it? A media or tech company? What is it aiming to be? Where will it stand 5-10 years from now?


Our very own Steve Gaither, President and CEO of JB Chicago, will be answering all of these questions as a panelist at the AllTwitterConference in San Francisco on June 4. Comment below with your thoughts on what Twitter is and if you will be attending this conference! For more information, please click here.

In November of last year, JB Chicago had the privilege of working on a social networking campaign with GoodBelly, a probiotic juice drink company. The result: unprecedented engagement and ROI –and thus, the foundation for an exciting, new relationship was formed.


To kick off the new year, JB Chicago worked with GoodBelly on a new campaign, appropriately named “Go with Your Gut in 2013.” With a focus on doing the most good for yourself and others, this reflects the type of relationship GoodBelly has had a reputation of maintaining with its customers.

Additionally, users can enter to win $100 gift cards from lululemon and Whole Foods Market — or the grand prize: the Ultimate Resolution package, which includes a Vitamix blender and a personal consultation with a dietitian. Participation is easy, thanks to Facebook Connect. And for every share on Facebook and Twitter, $1 is donated to the Chrohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America.
