A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER

TwoTone Creative is a small design agency located in the heart of West Des Moines, Iowa: Valley Junction. TwoTone started four years ago from my home. We grew little by little, and eventually, I was turning away so many clients while working around the clock to continue to serve and help my current clients. It forced me to make a decision: stay solo or train and grow a small team of designers to accommodate those clients. After much prayer, I decided to grow a team. We have, once again, reached full capacity, and we are looking for a fifth gifted designer.

We work with a variety of clients, helping them with their communication strategies, design, messaging, social, and marketing initiatives. Our small team atmosphere allows us to be nimble, take ownership of our work, and move quickly to serve our clients. We work from a bright, comfortable, friendly office, and believe deeply in work/life balance. We are looking for an experienced, creative, and fun individual to join me and my wonderful team of three – Kayla, Abby, and Vanessa. If this gets your heart racing with excitement, keep reading and I hope we can meet soon.
