Our Story

CAROLINE ANDREW & ASSOCIATES, LLC was founded back in 1997 with two goals:
1) To offer small and medium-sized businesses the best quality marketing and advertising services for the most affordable prices.
2) To create a culture that focuses on the client and their goals.

When Principal Partner Caroline Andrew started out, she offered direct mail design and copywriting for associations and publishers, as well as website design and content for early innovators. As the web caught fire, her client base expanded to law firms and professional service companies who realized they needed an online presence to compete. Today, Caroline offers custom websites, content and blog services, social media solutions and e-news and more for law firms, psychologists, associations and other commercial clients across diverse industries.

Caroline is able to keep prices lower than other premier marketing firms by keeping overhead low. CAROLINE ANDREW & ASSOCIATES has a single full-time employee: Caroline. She is the sales person, account manager and principal designer for all client accounts and projects. What happens when business gets crazy? Caroline takes advantage of Chicago's talented freelance market to bring in efficient, experienced design and programming assistance on an as-need basis.

And so the story continues to unfold . . ..
