How We Work

Websites and marketing collateral that help small and midsize companies grow.

Working with people and organizations to achieve their objectives is what we love about our work. Clean design, strategic thinking and productive collaboration are how we do it.

What We Do

We design for the best possible outcome

Being strategic and creative—and thinking like a marketer—changes everything. We examine your challenges and opportunities and build solutions that clearly express what your audience wants to know about you and show the world what you have to offer.

We have the know-how to get the job done.

The most important thing Fortify offers you is our experience. Our knowledge saves you time and money.

We put our years of design, creative direction, and front-end development to work for you.

We’ve done a lot of work for a variety of clients; cultural institutions, large and small non-profit organizations, law firms, insurance companies, apparel companies, businesses with global operations, and local start-ups. In some cases, we’ve been embedded with marketing teams and worked with internal resources to get projects done. In others, clients without a dedicated marketing staff have drawn from our experience to guide and prioritize their marketing efforts.

Who We Are

We’re a full-service design firm that’s structured to deliver value to small and midsize companies. Here’s how:

Equally strong creative and production

We’re not just good at technology or only good at generating ideas. We’re experienced and equally comfortable in both creative and production execution. So if your business needs a resource that can handle a range of marketing projects, understands your marketing objectives, and can deliver both creative and production services equally well, we’re probably a good fit for you.

On-demand resources

If a specific need comes up, we can manage it. We have long-standing relationships with great people who can take pictures, shoot video, write copy, write code, print on demand, print traditionally, manufacture signage… the works. Here’s a list of the services we provide.

We’re easy on your budget

While we can engage the folks mentioned above when you need them and manage them seamlessly to get things done, our core team is small. So you’re not paying for the overhead associated with staff you don’t need.
