You’ve heard the expression “you’re only as good as your word”. In our line of work, you're only as good as… well, your work!

Forged Creative has been helping all kinds of clients, large and small, with a variety of design and marketing tasks. Website designs, email newsletters, print materials and so much more. For a glimpse at some of our work, check out a few of our case studies below.

Case Study #01


Region 5 Children's Museum (Facebook.com/Region5ChildrensMuseum)



The Region 5 Children’s Museum is an emerging children's museum serving North Central MN.

Being a relatively new entity, the museum was looking to broadcast their voice to the 5-county area they engaged with. We helped support the initial market messaging of the museum through the set up and management of ongoing, monthly social media content on Facebook and Instagram.

We also helped develop a visual style for their Playful Exploration kits – take home packets that help children and families engage in interactive learning with the world around them. Forged developed the design of each packet.

What We Did:

Social Media Marketing   |   Print Design   |   Logo / Branding Concepts


Case Study #02



Tri-State Adjustments  (WeCollectMore.com)



Tri-State Adjustments (TSA) offers a complete range of call center, pre-collection, collection and legal services.


Having been founded in 1990, TSA needed a website refresh. The pervious site was dated, not very user friendly, and lacked responsive features. Not only that, their logo was feeling a bit stale.


We helped TSA migrate to a fresh, new website that would fit the current needs of potential clients browsing their site online. This included new visuals, colors, fonts, and an overall layout that was more pleasing to visitors.


We took the core elements of their existing logo that they wanted to keep and gave it a light makeover to modernize it just a bit.

What We Did:

Website Design   |   Logo Refresh

Case Study #03


Converge North Central  (Converge.org/North-Central)



Converge North Central (CNC) is a movement of churches working to help people meet, know and follow Jesus.


We collaborated with CNC on their overall bi-annual conference branding. Beyond the overall logo for the conference, we designed content that would help advertise the conference on social media, via a printed postcard, in PowerPoint presentations, and email newsletters.


We’ve also worked with CNC to develop t-shirt designs for their team when visiting partner churches and attending on-site meetings.

What We Did:

Conference Branding   |   Logo Work   |   T-shirt Design


Case Study #04



5Rocks Distilling Co.  (5RocksDistilling.com)



5Rocks Distilling Co. is a family owned and operated micro-distillery in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes Area.


We’ve worked with 5Rocks handling various support and content uploads to their current website.


In 2020, 5Rocks debuted a small-batch, limited holiday run of a Double Oak Barreled Bourbon and we coordinated with them to develop a social and website marketing campaign for the launch. We created pop-up advertising on their site and a handful of social media graphics promoting the bourbon.

What We Did:

Website Support   |   Campaign Ad Design

Case Study #05

We also helped them create a series of large, vinyl banners they could use to advertise their business outside to passing road traffic.
