A selfie of Annie and Danielle, out and about in Grand Rapids We are Mighty

People First

Mighty in the Midwest has long believed that working hard and solving problems should be deeply satisfying. So we’ve focused on relationships, believing that when we’re happy and healthy, our work isn’t only more enjoyable, it’s better. We invest in our team, and our team invests in each other, in our clients, in our craft, and in our community. We’re experts in digital strategy, content, and technology, and we’ve always been committed to thoughtful design, built exceptionally well. We believe that value is our most important deliverable, and that projects and client relationships should improve with time. Our first clients are our current clients, and we can’t wait to tackle their next big ideas—and hear about yours.

Happy, hungry, and healthy

Mighty has grown purposefully to be a team of leaders, including:

The Mighty team hard at work at their desks

We love living and working in West Michigan.

Mighty has been proudly located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan since 2007. We've grown slowly to maintain our focus on craftsmanship and quality within an ever-changing industry. And we've purposefully invested in project management, content strategy, copywriting, analytics, and optimization to better serve our clients. Mighty is a debt-free company. 80% of our expenses are in salaries, health insurance, and office space. We count our blessings, keep things lean, and share profits with our team members.

If it looks like we enjoy being together, that’s because we do. We take pride in our city, our clients, our team, and our work. And we have fun—both in and outside of work.

Keep up with us on Instagram!

We’ve moved a few times as we’ve grown, but never more than 0.1 miles from where we started. Since 2014, we’ve been happily settled on the 5th floor of the CWD building, and we love coming to work here. You’re welcome to visit anytime.

Say Hello

Let’s work together.

Our favorite clients tend to treat us as part of their team (and vice versa). If you’re looking to make something digital and interesting, we’d love to help you bring your ideas to life.
