North Fork

North Fork Builders is a top-notch general contractor that has constructed significant residential and commercial buildings in Montana and across the country. Their focus on excellent craftsmanship and meticulous project management sets them apart in their field.

They needed a brand and website that represented their level of expertise and communicated that they are builders, not architects, which was a common misconception. Hardy accomplished this and showcased the quality of their work and their process to completion through strategy, design, photo direction and copywriting.

Today, North Fork has an elevated brand and a dynamic website to help the company advance even further in its field.

Packaging

The Bridger Brewing team wanted to be prepared to can and distribute its beer after opening its second location. AMS partnered with Bridger Brewing for packaging design concepts. The first step in the packaging process involved a strategy session in which the unique identity of each beer was explored and dissected. Several concepts were then sketched out. Once a concept was selected for each beer, custom illustrations were created for cans and boxes. The result is a full lineup of beers, each with its own design that is unique while still clearly a member of the Bridger Brewing brand.
