Chicago Digital Talent Agency

Artisan Talent Chicago’s History

In 1988, Artisan came into being as one of the first creative staffing agencies for freelance Graphic Designers, Art Directors, Photographers, and Illustrators in Chicago. At age 25, Bejan Douraghy ventured from New York City to Chicago with $1,000 in his pocket and a business concept. A prior job experience had taught him a valuable lesson—you have to treat creative talent with the same level of respect as your clients because as a staffing agency, you’re in the business of people. With that in mind, he launched Artisan Talent. By 1993, Artisan’s Chicago staffing agency 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.
