In our own words,

Suspect 7 is a game development, VR & animation boutique based in Chicago. We work tirelessly to create bold new worlds for our clients, forging their ideas into one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experiences. From commercials to web videos, virtual reality to game design, we practice a philosophy of structured mischief:

Go in with a plan.

No matter what turns a project takes, we never take our eyes off the target.

Eschew the usual.

If you want to stand out, you’ve got to move past the easy ideas and dig a little deeper.

Hit ’em in the feels.

It takes more than just facts to really connect. Make ’em laugh. Make ’em cry. Make ’em remember.

in other words,

  • They're interested in the full context of my project. I know that they'll use that understanding to bring our video to life - going above and beyond to make us look good.

  • They developed a vision for my book trailer that surpassed anything I could have come up with on my own. They were quick, insightful, and incredibly creative.
