We created Friend & Fort to strengthen the relationships people have with products, brands and each other.
As children, there were the places that allowed our imaginations to run wild. Spaces that were always full of fun and endless possibility. Eventually, we would believe in the ideas we had created in the fort so strongly, they would begin to become real.
Today, our approach follows a similar process. We work closely with you and your team to explore what’s possible for your brand. Through collaboration and imagination, we find the right creative solution. Then we make it real.
Friend & Fort is here to help develop and guide ideas along, from hammering out the foundation of a brand, to building out the final polished form. Here are the areas we focus on...
Build it strong. To move upward you need to start with a rock-solid foundation. With a concise process, we collaboratively forge the tools that matter most; ones that can be utilized through the lifetime of your new or existing product, service, or business.
Give it character. Adding some style to a brand image is always a bonus. We specialize in dreaming up graphical, expressive, and playful elements designed to be as large as murals, or small as icon sets.
Make it cohesive. One of the best tools for storytelling is your website. Whether it's a portfolio, e-commerce, blog, product page, or something in between, we will figure out what platform you need and build it to shine.
Packaging + Print
It's not dead, it’s necessary. As an intimate part of your customer experience, this is not something to be brushed over. With experience in custom structure design and innovative print concepts, we have perfect craft from idea to production, designing materials that elevate your brand.
