Our History and the Windmill Design name

In 2018, in addition to helping our clients, we evolved our own marketplace positioning. Amid fine-tuning the business, we narrowed our focus to serve companies with complex B2B products and services, and within technical industries. Previously, our history as a Minneapolis-based website design firm Windmill Design served us well as a web and digital marketing agency that helped a wide variety of clients and industries, but we found value in streamlining our marketing efforts to better reach and help some of our favorite types of clients, where we could make the biggest impact. We focused in on technical industries, which has always been a large concentration of our client base.

We have been working with Windmill Strategy for 4 months on a complete ground up web design and all new marketing collateral. The Windmill team has proven to be an experienced and effective partner in the Med Devices space to accomplish our corporate goals in a compressed timeline without sacrificing quality. We are medical device company and our products are technical and need good supporting writing and visual support. Windmill Strategy has done an excellent job in ensuring our company branding and message resonates with our customers. They LISTEN and DELIVER high quality work.

I have been working with the people at Windmill Design for a few years. We first moved our website site to them for hosting. It was extremely simple and Kathy and her team were consummate professionals. I had many bad experiences with other companies charging a huge amount and giving us no help.We are now working on a brand new website and every meeting and email I have had with them has been proactive. They are always prepared and ready to go (they also answer really strange questions about capabilities of what websites can do).I plan to keep our business with them and as projects come up, use them for assistance.Thank you,Kent

We have used Windmill for several years for design and web work on one of our biggest events, and they are always phenomenal. Their whole team excels at working with the variety of stakeholders we bring to the table, and really tries to understand our needs and bring out the best in every project. Their ability to operate within difficult circumstances or criteria, integrate with our team, and consistently deliver beautiful work is absolutely second to none.
