My name is Aaron Hiltz. I am a graphic designer, website developer, marketing strategist and animal lover living in hopping Hopkins, Minnesota. I am passionate about helping small businesses build a professional online brand, gain more quality leads and make more money.
I am always looking for new opportunities to work with motivated individuals and companies interested in growing their business while helping to enrich the lives of others.
Outside the Office
I was born and raised in Maine where I developed a love for the great outdoors. I took canoe trips with my family, hiked part of the Appalachian Trail, went fishing in my kayak and camped where ever they’d allow it. Luckily, Minnesota has plenty of that to offer as well. In fact, I took my first trip to the Boundary Waters last year and I can’t wait to get back.
Looking for some place new to explore, I moved to the State of Hockey in November of 2011. I’ve loved hockey ever since I started skating at the age of 5 and I have been fortunate enough to play, watch and even referee my favorite game.
Hockey is indeed a great game, but I also enjoy games of the mind and the strategy involved in them. If I am not outside, you’ll likely find me enjoying a game of poker, cribbage, dominoes or Risk. My early enjoyment of strategy games like these has certainly led me in to my passion for marketing.

Wilderness Webdesign was great to work with. They listened to my concerns and needs and brainstormed with me to get the best website. The end result was amazing, both eye pleasing and functional.
Aaron Hiltz was responsive, fast and very cost effective in the design of one of our FBBC websites. He delivered exactly what we wanted and then took the time to make sure we understood how to update the content on the website. Overall the service, content and end product were excellent.

Wilderness Web Designs is the fourth web designer for my window washing business, and definitely the best. Finally I have a quality website at an affordable price and my web designer is helpful and available. By comparison, other companies that I have used were aloof and difficult to work with.
Wayzata Window Washing
Excellent web design services. Mobile-responsive websites, hosting capabilities, and generally accommodating, knowledgable, and positive people to work with. Highly recommended.
Grey Duck LLC
I enlisted Aaron's services with my existing web developer suddenly was unreachable. We were in the middle of an upgrade an had several issues that were crippling traffic to our site. Aaron stepped up immediately and was able to correct the problem in a matter of a few hours. Wilderness Web Design is now our go-to company for any and all of our website needs.

Aaron Hiltz has many great qualities. As his teacher and advisor at Becker College for four years I watched Aaron work diligently to develop his portfolio. His work ethic is excellent and he is dependable, flexible and a team player. Aaron's qualifications include strong software skills and a solid understanding of the design process. I highly recommend Aaron Hiltz as a graphic designer and would be glad answer further questions regarding his applications.
Wilderness Web Designs, LLC did a fantastic job designing a website for nonprofit. Our Board of Directors was overwhelmed with what content we should include and who was our target audience. Aaron did a great job listening to what we envisioned and offered solutions that far exceeded our expectations. As a result, we are better able to share our service projects with the local community and increase our membership.
I needed a new look for my small business website and I was tired of trying to keep it cheap by doing it myself. Aaron helped me create an amazing new website that has definitely increased traffic to my salon. He perfectly captured the look and feel I was going for. He is so easy to work with, very responsive, and best of all - it was very budget friendly. I would recommend Wilderness Web Design to anyone who needs a new website or website makeover.

Aaron has been a partner of ours for a couple years now. We started with small web development projects and have grown to full blown design and web development sites. Aaron is really good at implementing and building Wordpress sites and love that he is on our team. He also understands the importance of timelines and always looks to build a site he can put his name behind. Aaron also is great at wanting to learn new skills and further enhance his current skills, which I love. I look forward to continue to work with Aaron as an integral part of our team and highly recommend him.
