CULTURE IS EVERYTHING.



With diverse perspectives, a focus on family, and entrepreneurial mindsets, we strive to do business with honesty and integrity.

Not to sound cliche, but Fortress is a family. Not just our internal team, but it extends to our clients, too. The collaboration between energized, dedicated individuals creates a unique experience that produces stunning results.

- Heather,
Vice President of Operations

We work with so many amazing clients, and helping them be successful is what drives us. Every project is different and presents us with new challenges. Part of the culture here is to never get comfortable and to always be learning. I feel privileged to be able to come to work and use my creativity every day.

- Aubin,
Design Director

[Our Mission]

Change the lives of our clients by transforming their brands.

Fortress foundations

WE OVER ME

It’s about the team, not me or any individual. We’re stronger together, and we need each other to get where we want to go. Together, we’ll go further than we can go alone.

CLIENT SUCCESS OBSESSED

Our clients’ success is our success. When they succeed, we succeed. Treat every project you own, as if your own success is dependent upon it because it is.

RELENTLESS CREATIVITY

Creativity is limitless and we should always be pursuing it in all that we do. Creativity isn’t just for designers, it’s for every one of us to incorporate into our
daily work.

AGILITY

Be willing and able to adapt. Sometimes things can be unpredictable, and we must remain flexible and adaptable.

ADVANCEMENT

Never settle. Always strive to be better at what you do. Wear that chip on your shoulder. Learn, learn, learn. Our industry is always changing, so we must always be up on the latest technology and trends.

FAMILY FIRST

Work-life balance is key and taken seriously here. Taking care of business at home means you can take care of business efficiently and effectively here. We understand that sometimes you have to take care of life first.

HUMILITY

Remember that the minute you think you’re at the top of the mountain and can stop to rest, someone is coming up behind you, ready to take your spot.

OWNERSHIP

Treat everything—your space, your colleagues, your work, everything—as if you’re the owner.
