Twisted Sisters & Brothers

Home / Twisted Sisters & Brothers


Our core team is in Chicago. Our network of Twisted Sisters and Brothers lives, thinks and solves across different categories, areas of expertise, and time zones, and with the exception of one guy in Berlin, they’re all really nice.

The future of marketing and innovation consulting may continue to have four walls and offices and shelves, but it also may consist of a network of immensely smart people working together in the ether. We choose the latter. It’s amazing what you can get done in the great coffee shop in the cloud.
