Who We Are

We’re creative and technical freelancers who specialize in graphic design, video production, email communications, and website design and development. Working as an extension of your company or team, we can function as a virtual team member, providing specific design or technical skills. Or, we can manage your project from concept to completion. We're flexible, and we can help you keep your marketing and communications projects on track.

Working out of our “creative command center,” in the Northwest suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN, we design, film, build, write, and produce the creative stuff that helps our clients communicate via print, online, and video. We may also venture out and work at client’s sites when needed. Truth is…we can work pretty much anywhere—we’re flexible and portable! Whether you need a team with a full complement of skills, or someone with particular expertise to fill a gap, we bring a unique combination of technical and creative skills to business owners, creative directors, marketers, communicators and IT professionals. Check out some of the projects we've done for businesses and non-profits in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, or call us to learn about specific projects we’ve been a part of.

You Found Us, Why Work With Us?

WE'RE FLEXIBLE

Working from our own office, we’re fully equipped to be your virtual creative department, both for long term or one-off projects. And when you need a hand in your office we can bring our virtual office to yours. But our flexibility isn’t limited to our working location, we’re experienced project managers who can take your projects from concept to completion, or supply just a piece of your creative or technical needs.

WE’RE KNOWLEDGEABLE

Many freelancers specialize in one or two specific services. We have experience with companies in many industries, and we excel at a wide range of creative and technical services. You get big agency services at freelance prices.

WE’RE PROFESSIONAL

Sure we’re down-to-earth, creative and visual thinkers and know how to speak “geek,” but we also know how to relate and communicate professionally. We’re comfortable working directly with techies, creative types, and management—we tailor our communication style and approach to your needs.

WE DELIVER

We realize there are others who do what we do. But, when you choose us, we realize you’ve put your faith and trust in us to get the job done. From the very first meeting we work hard to prove you made the right choice. We think you’ll like working with us. We’re flexible, knowledgeable, professional, and we work hard…so you can breathe easier.
