Strategy + Branding = Everything. 


ClearSky started 25+ years ago as an advertising/design firm in Chicago. Since then we have morphed through all the phases of a changing world, adapting and growing from magazine ads and tv commercials to  the electronic age and beyond. We have been developing websites since the very first html sites, and today we excel at advanced platforms, mobile apps and social media marketing.

But we aren't your average design/brand firm. We have insight and wisdom that comes from working with top clients and complicated projects. We brand top motivational speakers, inspirational documentaries, music, plays, and cultural events. We cultivate archetypal branding strategies from a Jungian perspective. and we utilize the archetype nature of the industry to speak to the community, creating genuine branding rather than manipulative or shallow approaches.

Let's plan out your strategy and make your dreams come true. 
Check out a few highlights of our work here.


Here's a little about what we do.

The direction of images is critical.


As founder of ClearSky, I've been directing photo and video shoots for over 25 years. I look work with the best of photographers and videographers to capture the exact story that best portrays my client's product or service. It's a fundamental and critical aspect of great branding and we love doing it with our clients.

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your own heart.
— The Dalai Lama

Case Study:
A classic Aspen hotel gets a new coat of paint


Marketing doesn't always mean starting from scratch. Sometimes we need to give love to the old and nurture it into the modern world. For Aspen Mountain Lodge, a classic ski hotel, we got to work! After we directed a few photo shoots and redesigned their website, we gave them a Facebook facelift, developed a killer email campaign to build their community. We spread the word, and on it goes.  
 That's today's business!

Our Love for Products

We've been working with product development for over twenty years. From sourcing packaging and designing the brand, to creative online marketing (an ever moving target), we love everything about products. Over twenty years ago we were directing photoshoots for print catalogs like Nightingale Conant and for the first home video companies, and these days we are designing for the digital age. We'd love to talk with you about your product and help you turn your vision into a successful and sought after brand.


Consulting Services

Every great idea went through a birthing process. I've worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs and companies over the years, and I've watched every one struggle at some point. I can say with certainty that all successful people have one thing in common: they developed a toolbox full of resources that help make their dreams come true. Sometimes those resources include a designer or a copywriter, but I feel that the most valuable resource is a consultant, therapist, or coach to go inward with. With 20 plus years in award winning design and marketing, plus degrees and training in Jungian Psychology, I offer unique practice of consulting that can help you go inward to turn your dreams into reality. Let's do it.
