About Happy Medium

Happy Medium is a full-service interactive agency in Des Moines, Iowa. Our friendly approach combines the old with the new. Our strategy is built on honesty. It produces results.

We work in a fast-paced industry, one that changes every day. We find that to be so exciting, and it makes us want to work that much harder to stay on top of the trends and movements, but even among all this new, new, new, we do something at Happy Medium which might seem old-fashioned. We believe in true partnerships. We believe in saying what we mean and doing what we say. We believe that collaboration is mutually beneficial. We find that partnerships built on transparency in which both parties want to work together to create the best work, which is the only work we’re interested in doing.

We believe in making people happy. Let’s work together.
