In 1988, before the ubiquity of the internet and the birth of online job boards, Artisan came into being as a creative staffing agency for freelance graphic designers, art directors, photographers, and illustrators in Chicago.
By 1993, Artisan had tripled in size and was cited in Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the nation. We’ve continued to evolve ever since, becoming one of the most successful and influential interactive, digital, and creative staffing agencies not just in our hometown, but in the entire country.
What has always set us apart from other companies of our kind is our vision of becoming the “It” agency for high-level job hunters and businesses alike. Our goal is to be the first choice for top clients and talent, and to build strong, ongoing relationships with the best of the best.
Artisan is now a respected authority and leader in the staffing industry. With offices in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC, Indianapolis, and Cincinnati - and placing talent nationwide – we have a wealth of powerful client relationships and a tested reputation as talent advocates. Today, Artisan serves 2,000 companies around the United States, along with thousands of skilled professionals in a wide variety of fields.
Whatever your business needs, we have the resources to facilitate the perfect match. The broad range of specialty professionals we represent and the close relationships we sustain make the difference.
