Our History

Second Studios is a Chicago-based agency founded in September of 2007 under the principle of building partnerships with its clients. Initially starting as a one-person graphic and web design company by Founder & CEO, Bryan Epstein, it has grown to become a creative and marketing agency offering a full suite of solutions to aid its partners in growing their business and meeting organizational goals and objectives.

In its name, the word, second, puts an emphasis on the measurement of the time it takes to make a first impression. You don’t get a second chance to make a lasting and positive impression, so we pride ourselves on building unique partnerships with our clients while fostering growth.

Second also symbolizes agreement, as in “We second that strategy.” We listen to our partners ensuring that our projects are developed collaboratively with everyone in mind.

We are Second Studios.

Our Vision

Many agencies only seek projects. Our objective is to seek and develop long-term relationships with our clients. Second Studios is built on cultivating relationships, and it is ingrained in how we think and how we work.

Nothing builds support and trust with our clients faster than performance, which also means doing what we say we will do. Our work emphasizes our desire to build distinct brands for our clients, enabling them to create long-lasting bonds with their customers. We get excited about developing a strategy that enables our partners’ success.

We are digital storytellers: bringing business ideas to life through building brands, creating stories, and sharing visions.
