Chicago Real Estate Institute

Harnessing the Power of Web Design

We transformed the online visual identity of one of Chicago’s top real estate institutions. Our work gave them a strong, identifiable brand and a path to new heights.

THE CHALLENGE

Help advance CREI’s mission of providing flexible and feasible real estate education to Chicagoans.

THE SOLUTION

Fortress produced a refined, eye-catching, and user-friendly website that potential Chicago Real Estate Institute students will use to affirm that CREI is the right match.

Telling CREI’s Story

In building and designing this website, we aimed to emphasize CREI’s established roots in the industry. They have helped over 10,000 people earn their brokers’ license and jumpstart their careers since opening their doors over three decades ago. That reputation of excellence matters.

Clear, Concise, Conversational

Our goal for the inner pages of this site was to provide users with answers, skipping over unnecessary filler. You want your broker’s license; CREI wants to help you get there. All the info users need about CREI’s mission, class structures and modalities, and instructors, is easily accessible.

Kam Buckner for Mayor

Fortress is not a political agency. But since we love Chicago, we could not pass up this opportunity to make a difference in the city we call home. In recent months, we have been hard at work orchestrating the launch of Kam Buckner’s campaign for Mayor of Chicago – from branding, to video production, to web design, we created the campaign’s digital footprint.

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY

With declining university enrollment across the country, Southern Illinois University knew that it was now or never to make their story heard. SIU has so much to offer its students, they just needed to tell that story to more college hopefuls. That’s where Fortress came in.
