High-Quality and Low-Key

While various awards and accolades have been received over the years, Harp doesn’t focus on that aspect. We’re not here to serve our egos. We’re here to serve our clients. We’re driven to exceed our clients’ goals; and our rewards come from making the client the hero.

We’re high-quality, and low-key…” says Lisa Harp, founder of the agency. We’re efficient, timely, and we strive to add value at every step.

“There are really very few, true full-service agencies in the Chicago suburbs—with a full in-house staff with deep expertise across all channels, including social media, brand, SEM, email marketing, and more. Harp is that agency. And it’s not just our expertise and quality of work that stand out, but our wonderful team of bright, creative, and deeply knowledgeable professionals who really care about the client and quality of work, while remaining flexible and very service-oriented.”

What’s the Harp difference?

It’s not what we do, it’s how we do it.

Harp didn’t get to be one of the top advertising agencies in Chicago by chance. For over two decades, we have executed big agency results with small agency integrity, passion and service. At Harp, you’ll find on-target campaigns, on-time results, high-quality work, and a staff of accessible, flexible, hard-working professionals.

What our clients say.

We walk the walk. They talk the talk.

The true difference in Harp is their ability to quickly grasp the goals of what we are trying to accomplish and deliver something beyond what I had imagined. The team is fast, smart, quality-focused and intensely creative. It bears repeating, Harp is truly top notch.
