OUR STORY

URBAN TOAD MEDIA

What began as an idea soon evolved into a full-time dream for best friends Dawn Siewert and Darren Losee. Dawn took the first leap of faith, fully committing herself to starting Urban Toad Media, while Darren contributed his nights and weekends. Soon after, they were both working as a full-time team from their office in downtown Fargo.

 

Urban Toad Media offers a broad spectrum of graphic design, brand identity design, advertising and marketing services and professional photography. In the past five years, they have provided F-M area clients with outstanding work that enables their businesses to thrive.

 

Feeling there was a void in the area's publications for men, Dawn and Darren harnessed past experience with magazine design, publishing and professional photography to create one of Urban Toad Media’s most well-known undertakings —The Good Life Men's Magazine. Highlighting the different sides of Fargo-Moorhead's most recognizable or under-appreciated men, the publication has grown in recognition since its first issue hit the racks in 2013.

 

Whether they’re working with each other, their writers or their clients, Dawn and Darren always manage to keep work fun, lighthearted and meaningful.
