About

A combination of good people and a lot of creativity

What We Believe

We believe in doing good, being unconventional, and growing with each challenge. Our mission is to keep our unorthodox fires burning so as to serve our clients and community the very best we can.

Where Are We

We are a Minneapolis agency. Sometimes we're buried in the snow and other times we are soaking up the sun (when it's not glaring off our computer screens.) Regardless we love hotdishes, Prince, listing lakes and solving digital design challenges.

Halftone remains very much open during this period. We are still working, just at a distance.

Our Squad Dynamic

We elevate each other, collaborate often, and sit within shouting distance so it’s easy to pester one another (or get critique, that too).
