Part of your team.
We want you to see Bluestem Media not as an outside firm, but as part of your team. We care about you and your business and will work hard to help you grow and succeed.
To us your project is not just another website,
but an opportunity to form a positive and ongoing working relationship
with a fellow small business.
Web Designer, Owner
Ready to Help Your Business
Bluestem Media is led by Founder/Owner Eric Wiinanen, who has over 16 years experience in web design, photography, and video production. Eric works with some very talented designers, developers, and copywriters to create stand-out web, photo, and video projects that fit into your budget.
Eric’s many years in law enforcement have prepared him to stay calm and collected under pressure, well-prepared to meet the demands of your web design project. At age 20 he began working for the City of West Fargo and he’s worn many hats through the years being out on patrol as an officer, teaching D.A.R.E., and working as the city’s webmaster, photographer, and videographer. After 19 years working in this capacity, he recently retired to pursue his work at Bluestem Media full time.
Eric is a great communicator, and he has a knack for distilling technical terms and programming concepts down into everyday language that makes good sense. He is also serious about doing his work well. He cares about the details, and he’ll make sure to get it right.
Eric is a hard-working small businessman and a caring community member, but he’s also a family man. When not working on websites and photos he enjoys taking walks with his wife Jen, playing ball in the backyard with his four boys, and flying model airplanes when the wind is just right.
