About Right Hat
Right Hat is located in the heart of Chicago. We focus on two main areas: brand experience and memorable design. We help organizations tell their brand stories with clarity and a sense of wit, if possible. Because many of our clients are in professional services, technology or education, we are called on to simplify messaging for complex service offerings. We are agnostic as to which communication tools we use—sometimes the solution lies in digital advertising and other times a printed thought leadership piece makes a bigger impact. The bottom line is this: We create memorable, transforming marketing programs that move the needle.
