What we do
A34 specializes in helping businesses grow by making bold creative services accessible, easy, and budget-friendly. We’re too small to be pretentious, too energetic to be boring, and too impatient to be slow.

we are different
A34 believes in using great design and smart marketing strategy to help tell your story. It’s about listening, understanding, and then creating something bold and effective.
We strive to be an “un-agency” — which means we want to keep things easy, fun, and straightforward. If we’re going to create some Facebook ads for you, that’s what we’re going to do. Those ads will kick ass, and you’ll be impressed with the results. We’re not going to try to impress you by calling it “using our expertise in digital marketing to develop and implement a multi-faceted social media campaign.” We impress with our results, not our pitch.

We’ve been lucky to work with these great companies. We’ve worked for some as direct A34 clients, and we’ve worked in conjunction with larger marketing companies on some.

Founder and Creative Director
Dana is an innovative creative director, graphic designer, art director, copy writer and photographer based in the Twin Cities. And though his name may not suggest it, he is actually a male. He apologizes for the confusion.
Dana founded Arrow 34 because he was tired of seeing businesses either paying an agency too much to overthink straightforward projects, or getting bad design from cheap online places. He knew good design, at an affordable price, with straightforward communication was possible.
Before A34, Dana's career focus was publishing, on both the editorial and advertising sides. He has more than 15 years of experience in design and copy writing, and has focused specifically on small business marketing for the last three years.
Dana lives in Maple Grove with his wife and two kids. In his free time he enjoys golf, beer, ping pong, fantasy football and reading. He also thoroughly enjoys writing about himself in the third person.
Sarah has worked as a writer, editor and social media machine for more than 20 years. She’s won numerous awards for her writing and editing, including work for national and local magazines and newspapers. She loves working with words and images to tell stories, build brands and delight and engage audiences of all kinds.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys spending time with her school-age son, playing tennis, growing vegetables and dining out.
