NETWORKING

You’ll meet other creative, whip-smart people you might not otherwise get to know—including people from highly regarded advertising and design boutiques across Chicago.

THAT FEEL-GOOD FEELING

You’ll help nonprofits that need your expertise. By extension, you will also help the people these nonprofits serve.

SOMETHING NEW

Being part of an eight-week creative rally is an adventure. It’s something like a reality TV show. After all, you don’t choose your team members or your client, so there’s an element of the unexpected. Imagine “Big Brother,” only nicer. And cooler.

WE PARTY

We celebrate the work—and the people responsible for it. At the end of each rally season, we throw a launch party for all the teams and nonprofits involved. It’s a great time to mingle with new people and see the creative solutions designed by other teams.

IT’S FINITE

We’re not asking you to sign your life away. The commitment is finite: creatives donate about five to ten hours per week for eight weeks. That includes a two-hour weekly meeting, plus three to eight hours of time of designing, writing and/or concepting.

OR…IT’S ONGOING

Your rally ends in eight weeks, but that doesn’t mean your relationship with EPIC has to end. You’re welcome back any time—as a volunteer, supporter, advocate or even, yes, as a participant in another rally.
