About Us

Creatives that enjoy exceeding expectation.

Who We Are

We like to say that we’ve been “around the block” a few times. Thankfully, that’s a good thing for a design company. Through the years we’ve learned that there is a lot to the web, and a great deal of it changes at a rapid pace. That’s where we fit in. Staying ahead of the curve is our specialty, and we love the challenge of designing websites that are both beautiful and compelling and will last our clients years after their conception.

A Big Fish In a Little Pond

Clearsite Creative is located in downtown Faribault, MN which is about an hour south of the Twin Cities.

Our business started here 15 years ago, and we’ve always loved its small town charm and atmosphere. In fact, our enthusiasm for our community is a big part of what lead to Faribault's award-winning community branding campaign.

Our Mission

To support people and business with design, marketing and branding that increases the value of the businesses and communities we serve.

We stand behind what we do 100%, and we believe that any business should take their website seriously. Getting a website is a great first step, making sure that website tells your story and makes a lasting impression is just as important. We’re pros at bringing your vision and
culture online.
