Mike Salvatore, owner of Heritage Bicycles, sharing lessons he learned by creating a brand people love.

As 2015 comes to a close, we wanted to look back at all the amazing clients and fun we had! Let’s take a look…
First up, we had our Instagram takeover of PRCouture.
It's been an exciting seven months for the @c1revolution team (@livinlapanda, @lizquankiu, _ericupham, @briannagazelle) but none of it could have been possible without a great support system of family, friends and mentors. Starting our first takeover post with a note of gratitude to those special people who have believed in our dream that is now a reality. And of course I have to shoutout the team at @prcouture who made this possible! 🎉💖 photo by @mmariesp. -X👉@ximenatalks #c1takeover
We hosted “Mastering the Art of PR Pitching,” with Emerald-Jane Hunter, former booker for ABC’s Windy City Live, and Afua Owusu, supervising producer for WGN-TV’s morning show. One of our core values is helping others because when one publicists/agency does well-we all do well.
Ximena went to see our client, Sarah Seven, debut her ready to wear line on the runway in New York.
Feeling pretty lucky about my world's colliding. Amped to be repping @c1revolution in NYC as our client (and my bridal dress designer!) debuts her ready to wear line…the best is yet to come! Shout out to the C1 team (Liz, Emma, Brianna and Eric!) and @lizamhill for making dreams come true 💟🎉👍🗽💪😍 #vscocam #sarahsevensaturday
Our graphic designer, Eric Upham, designed a banner for DePaul University.
The “Hot Dog and Encased Meat of the World,” Foodseum’s first pop-up museum, came to life.
We got our girl Nicole Suarez on Windy City Live and Cellular Field to throw out the first pitch at a White Sox game.
Ximena got to interview Ludacris for The Revolutionaries.
