Who we are


The Chicago iX Studio in the heart of the Chicago Loop and is home to passionate IBM practitioners that span experience strategy and design from beginning to end. Our team includes digital strategists and creatives that focus on UX and design, as well as front-end and back-end developers and project managers. The Wacker studio is also home to the IBM iX SEO practice, and serves as a hub for the IBM Mobile First team. We transform businesses in every industry — from B2B to B2C and B2E, with a concentration in Travel and Transportation.


Located along the Magnificent Mile in the iconic Wrigley Building, the Chicago iX Studio is a maker’s space at its core, housing our Chicago Design Thinking team, as well as IBM expert practitioners. Often, the space is also used to facilitate workshops and colocate dedicated client and IBM teams for key initiatives. An open, collaborative space with a VR demo station to showcase our latest prototypes, it’s a perfect venue to inspire and transform businesses in every industry.
