Evolve Creative is a full-service creative agency focused on delivering strategic website & branding solutions.

What makes Evolve Creative different? We focus on your business goals first, not the design. Who are you trying to sell to, what are their interests, what's your mission, who are your competitors, what's your plan to be an industry leader? We will give you a strategic marketing plan to make sure what we design has a purpose. The designs and website we develop will target the right audience and you will be able to measure the results of your investment.

Dan is our Lead Developer, heading up projects all over the Stack!. We had to pry Dan away from his keyboard to get a biography out of him. "Front end, back end, middle...end? You bet'cha!", says Dan. Dan is also our resident JavaScript ninja. You want to talk web? Dan has all the jargon! "REST APIs, Progressive Web Apps, Node, JSON, Isomorphic React? NOW you're speaking my language!", Dan continues. Dan's interest outside of programming include: camping, fishing, archery, rock and roll, and exotic foods.

Business Strategist

Erik serves as our business strategist for aviation projects. He is the owner of AirCorps Aviation and has a wealth of knowledge related to general aviation and WWII aircraft. 

Erik and Sarah can consult with your business to discuss goals, mission, vision and customers which will allow both parties to have a clear direction for a website or branding redesign. 

Explore Bemidji

Those of us in Bemidji know how to balance life and work. We go to a great job and then head home with NO traffic, except for the occasional runaway sheep or cow. Followed by dinner that you picked or caught yourself, then jump in a boat for a swim or some fishing. We are more than Paul and Babe (even though we love them!) We are hunters, fishermen, artists, entrepreneurs, conservationists, and a community of friends.
