About The Minneapolis Egotist
The Minneapolis Egotist is an anonymously-run website featuring the best creative, the best talent and the best resources from the land of 10,000 lakes, the heart of the frozen tundra – the mighty Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota. (But mostly Minneapolis.)

Manifesto
Like it or not, Minneapolis is a driving force in the larger creative community. It’s packed with agencies you’ve heard of and accounts you’d kill to work on. But more importantly, it’s busting with tiny shops and accounts oozing with opportunity.

We’re here to brag for everyone. Not just the big dogs.

It’s our belief, as creative participants in this city, that creative opportunity stems from creative champions challenging one another, by holding each other accountable for our work, by hiring and promoting local talent and not necessarily always being “nice.” This is our attempt to foster big ideas and radical thinking on a local level. To remind us all why we love this job. To promote the best work and ideas in Minnesota. This is The Minneapolis Egotist, a means to an end.

A Message To Businesses
As decision makers on the client side and inside agencies, the choice to hire locally and demand good work is yours to make. By doing so, you’ll not only help elevate the Minneapolis creative community, you’ll help Minnesota continue to be a draw for new talent – continuing the cycle.

Just as we’re celebrating the Minneapolis creative community, we also want to celebrate business owners who approve great work. With your help and trust, we’ll keep Minneapolis a creative and cultural Mecca.

We’re all about hiring the world’s best talent. But we’re all about hiring Minnesota’s best talent first. It’s the challenge of agencies to uncover the photographers, illustrators, directors, writers, designers and visionaries in our fair state that will help make your work better every time they touch it.
