About Orbit Media Studios

Orbit Media Studios is a custom web design and development firm based in Chicago. Orbit is a community of creative and friendly professionals who are highly skilled in design, programming, project management, web marketing, and web strategy. To their clients, Orbit is an outsourced digital marketing department.

We are a proud member of the Chicago community. We strive to educate and collaborate with like-minded businesses in Chicago to make a difference both environmentally and socially.

3 years ago, Orbit began Chicago Cause, a philanthropic partnership with two other local Chicago businesses. Through this annual program, Orbit donates over $25,000 in web design and development services to a Chicago nonprofit. The recipient receives an entire website, and participating partner organizations donate social media, PR, video, and SEO services.

Orbit prides themselves on their collaborative nature, solid processes, and exceptional service. Their main goal is getting results for their clients.
