Nerland Co. Minneapolis advertising agency



branding + interactive agency


Nerland Co. is a strategic Minneapolis branding + interactive agency with a passion for solving problems, launching companies, improving corporate culture, igniting brands and delivering results using our three phase methodology.

We put aside all assumptions at the start of each project to truly understand human experiences from a birds-eye view, dive into the nitty gritty details, and discover the problem. Once we know the problem, we set up each client for success through creative thinking and smart planning.

Our creative services are all encompassing from branding, website and mobile design and development, social media community strategy and maintenance, search and lead generation, direct mail and campaign marketing, as well as motion graphic video and story telling.


Combine brand experts with digital specialists and you’ve got Nerland Co. We never sit still or rest on yesterday’s laurels. Nerland Co. strives to be the best in what we do, so we don’t pretend to be everything for everyone.


Advertising agencies are often asked, “Who do you work with?” It’s a fair question — one we are happy to answer because we love working with such a dynamite group of companies. We have helped name, build, shape, launch, grow and maintain over 200+ clients since 2003.

How has Nerland Co. continued to grow and stay the course for a decade? We:

  1. hire really great talent; never accept less than the best from each other.
  2. continually improve creative and client services.
  3. welcome 360 communication. More of it. In all ways.

We’re big fans of Warby Parkers and iced coffee. We love our iPhones and never use headphones. Some of us even sport colorful socks. But as a whole, Nerland Co. is a hand-picked creative team inspired to evaluate your brand, improve it, re-evaluate it, and improve it some more.

Nerland Co. appreciates brand integrity and works to maximize efforts, increase ROI and grow your brand to make you more money!

Account Team


Nathan Nerland

chief creative officer
At the age of 23, Nathan co-founded NADA advertising. He is the creative strategist behind Nerland Co. and with his holistic approach, is driven by developing unique differentiators for clients that will breakthrough the clutter in their categories. He is also founder of the Carson Glore Foundation, who’s mission is to educate an entire generation by building schools in Kenya.








In 2011, Nerland Co. founder, Nathan Nerland, started the Carson Glore Foundation. Their only mission was to educate a generation by building schools in Kenya. The first Carson Glore school opened its doors to 388 students in 2012. With two schools now completed and nearly 800 students, the Carson Glore Foundation is currently fundraising for their 3rd school. Nerland Co. is proud to underwrite the entire costs of the foundation so that every dollar donated goes directly to building classrooms, adding water supply systems, installing new latrines, purchasing desks, buying school supplies, retraining teachers and supporting the parent teacher association.
