Since our founding in 2001, 50,000feet has taken risks, put great ideas into motion and given back to those around us. While the world has drastically changed in the past two decades, shifts in the commercial and cultural climate have offered us opportunities to grow. This year, we’re proud to celebrate our 20th anniversary. 


Today, we are one of the largest agencies of our kind in Chicago with a growing New York City presence to service our expanding client roster. As 50,000feet continues to build momentum, we are renewing our focus on our mission and purpose as well as our commitment to our staff, clients and communities.


“As we’ve grown, we remind ourselves of why we founded 50,000feet in the first place: to do great work for the right reasons,” said Jim Misener, Principal and President at 50,000feet. “For us, this means creating memorable and meaningful brand experiences and helping our clients build trust and engagement with their customers and consumers. In addition, we are broadening our focus on all of our stakeholders—our employees, clients, business and community partners. There is no better time to reaffirm the principles upon which we founded our business.”


With an interdisciplinary approach that combines business acumen, audience insights and design thinking, 50,000feet delivers immersive, strategically-led creative solutions for some of the world’s most respected brands, including Abbott, BBVA, BCG, BMW, Knoll, Mastercard, MINI, NYSE, Under Armour and Sony, among others. We have worked with brand leaders across architecture and design, automotive, financial services, logistics, luxury, consumer electronics, technology and real estate.


50,000feet has been recognized for helping to launch high-growth challenger brands and continues to expand its capabilities in strategic services and planning, customer experience, service design, creative and technology execution across channels, platforms and media.


“Although every business is unique, every business should invest in people who invest in the growth and future of your organization,” said Ken Fox, Founding Partner and Executive Creative Director at 50,000feet. “To be successful, you need to take risks and take on challenges with a smile.” 


As we write our next chapter, we recognize that the future will bring change, evolution and growth. Tomorrow, we will welcome new faces, new challenges and new achievements. But today, and throughout this landmark anniversary year, we celebrate the remarkable moment we’re in. Because for us, we know there are new heights to reach for ourselves and our clients. And when we work together, we not only rise together—we soar.


Onward and Upward.
