Where the best stories are told and made.

At Cannonball, we believe every brand has a compelling story. What matters is how well that story is told.

Cannonball is a Midwest-based, brand-building, full-service agency that brings consumers and brands together in compelling and memorable ways.

We specialize in advertising, digital strategy and content development. We proudly work with some of the largest and smallest brands in the world. We’re passionately independent. And we create affinity for brands at every point of contact.

Our Process.

Effective process is rigorous and real, but doesn’t get in the way of an idea.

At Cannonball, we are proudly “doers.” Our three agency principals still work daily as Account Director, Copywriter and Art Director. That commitment to doing the work shows in how we service – and execute – for our clients. It should be no surprise that the average tenure of our clients is over 10 years.
