At Media Junction, we tend to keep our feet pretty firmly planted on the ground. It has been an honor to receive HubSpot awards and Hermes awards, but at the end of the day, we’re just doing what we love—helping companies find qualified leads through a kick-ass website.
Even though we don’t let notoriety go to our heads, we were definitely honored to be chosen by Expertise as one of the top 19 web design firms in Minneapolis last month.
Who Is Expertise?
Expertise is a Seattle-based company whose goal is, “To be a hub where qualified experts can connect with people to share their knowledge, experience and skills.” They rank businesses on 25 variables across six judgment criteria:
- Reputation: A history of delighted customers as a signal of outstanding service.
- Credibility: Building customer confidence with licensing, industry accreditations and awards.
- Experience: Masters of their craft, based on years of practical experience and education.
- Availability: Consistently approachable and responsive, so customers never feel ignored.
- Professionalism: Providing customers a seamless experience both online and off.
- Engagement: Actively engaged with their customers across a number of platforms.
Last month, they chose the top 19 web design firms in Minneapolis from an initial list of 260. And, lucky for us, Media Junction was selected for meeting that criteria. We are truly honored to be named among these other fine agencies in the Twin Cities. We love—and have been inspired by—their work for years. We also know we couldn’t have done it without having such amazing clients!
People Say We're Pretty Awesome
Each of our projects kicks off with full communication on the needs and wants of the client for their website. Our senior strategists have 15+ years of experience diving into data and optimizing conversions. Our creative team is led by Trish Lessard, Kim Wilcox, and Ryan VonBergen.
Trish Lessard, our CEO, has architected websites for clients ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies for the past 18 years. Her incredible attention to detail and deep understanding of on-page SEO and UI/UX has earned Media Junction a reputation for building websites that get results.
Our vice president and lead inbound marketing strategist, Kim Wilcox, joined Media Junction in 2001 and helped Media Junction grow from a small web design agency to one of only ten HubSpot Diamond Partners worldwide.

Ryan VonBergen, our creative director, has been with Media Junction for 7 years and won four Hermes Awards in 2015 with his design direction. He oversees the design department and is involved with the project from the first strategy call through implementation.
Under their creative direction, Media Junction’s in-house strategy, design and development teams ensure each client project is delivered on time and within budget. Our clients drive what we do and here’s what some of them have to say about working with us:
Media Junction recently completed our new website. We couldn't be happier with the process and the work. Definitely five stars. Everyone at Media Junction is professional, knowledgeable and fun to work with. They held us accountable and launched the Mastcom website in an amazingly short period of time.
I couldn't say enough good things about working with Media Junction to complete our new bank website on the HubSpot platform. From the initial planning to the final post-launch updates, they were great to work with. The templates and tools that Media Junction built into our HubSpot platform allow us to grow and adapt our site over it's lifetime. I don't feel the need to constantly bug the developers on structural or feature changes as they have built the functionality for us to make these updates. This goes far beyond simple content updates. They built a site that truly can be updated, modified, and adapted to our future digital needs. I highly recommend working with the team at Media Junction, especially if you are in the financial services industry, as they can create a modern and powerful digital platform for your company.
I am the business developer/marketing manager for Croft Production Systems, Inc. (oil and gas company) in Houston, Texas. To say that I do thorough research and ask a million questions before hiring a company (for personal or business) to make sure I make the RIGHT decision, is an understatement. The Media Junction not only answered all my questions and then some—they answered them quickly, precisely, provided examples, added extra beneficial information. Everything was planned out, written, designed, and executed beautifully.
What Can We Do for You?
Awards are pretty great and give validity to our work, but we don’t waste time admiring them or just thinking of ourselves. We love leading the Minneapolis web design scene and are ready to dive into our next inbound marketing or web design project—is it with you?
