Jacobs Agency Leads Krakus to Success at Chicago Air and Water Show

CHICAGO, August 20, 2016 — Jacobs Agency and Krakus teamed us this year to revive the famed Ham Train, this time bringing it to the 58th annual Chicago Air and Water Show. Taking advantage of the great weather this summer, Krakus gave away samples, t-shirts, and more at the Air & Water Show. The Jacobs team created several ads, placed all over the city, as well as a Snapchat filter for those on the beach that wanted to share photos with friends.


“Bringing back the Ham Train was a great moment for Jacobs and Krakus,” said, Tom Jacobs, President of Jacobs Agency. “It was a big hit last year and we’re glad we were able to continue to extend Krakus’ reach within Chicago.”


Jacobs Agency is 40 strong and still growing, with a full service offering for top brand name local and regional clients including Smithfield Foods, Amtrak, Insurance Auto Auctions and Baird & Warner.



Now as then, Jacobs Agency remains a fiercely independent Chicago based full service agency.
