About Fast Horse

 
 

Where We Work is a Manifestation of How We Work

Our award-winning headquarters in Minneapolis’s creative epicenter, the North Loop neighborhood, was designed to promote collaboration and offer maximum flexibility. Designed by legendary modern architect David Salmela, our office reflects the needs of a modern, fast-moving creative agency.

Our Culture

Before opening the doors in 2001, our founder, Jörg Pierach, drafted a vision for Fast Horse. It continues to shape our work and culture to this day:

Our vision is to become one of the most admired agencies in America.
