Brickhouse Creative, Inc., is a strategic design and brand management agency based out of offices on Main Street in the historic part of beautiful downtown Bozeman, Montana.
Quietly established in 2000, Brickhouse delivers a broad range of marketing/communications services to a limited group of long-term clientele, including brand strategy and management, ad and collateral design, web development, SEO and social networking, copywriting, photography, video, music, and just about anything that affects a client’s brand (which is pretty much everything).
We specialize in working with local and national-level clients who require creativity, agility, and assurance that their brand and related messaging is consistent across all marketing channels. Often called ‘the one throat to choke’ by our clients, we like being in this position, to ensure that consistency. Our core competency is in building brands that don’t just look good, but resonate powerfully with their core constituency.
And yet, while we’ve won numerous awards for design, packaging, websites, and photos/videos, at the end of the day it’s our relationships with our clients—and our long-term approach to business and community—that we value the most.

Design without strategy is art. Art is great on your office wall but not if you need it to do work for you.
That’s why we think that everything we do for your business should play a role in helping move it forward. And that, in turn, is what we call strategic design — and it goes something like this:
> What are your goals (short and long term)?
> Who is your customer (current and desired)?
> Does your brand appeal to that client?
> If yes, develop tools driven by those answers.
> Then, together, assess what works and what doesn't.
> Rinse and repeat...
While this process isn’t complicated, it is critical. Ready, fire, aim; with appropriate prudence, we tend to say it's better to do it and react to the results, than to overthink it and do nothing.
And what’s ‘brand management?’ Think of it as The Big Picture. In other words, making sure that all your marketing efforts are consistent with your brand, across all channels. It also means helping your brand evolve and change as the market and/or your audience changes, and making sure it fits your overall vision.
At the end of the day, you’re going to think of Brickhouse as a scalable part of your team — really more like an extension of your business — that you can rely on to both help paint the big picture, and to plain old get things done.
One of our key mantras is to “do good work for people we like.” Life is too short to work with people with whom you don’t enjoy spending time. Whether big or small and whatever the product or service, it’s the more in-depth, more interconnected, longer-term sorts of client relationships that we find most fulfilling, personally and professionally.
And we do it all with clear communication and transparency, not confusing marketing-speak; a team attitude, not "we know you better than you;" no hidden markups or surprise invoices; plus efficiency, expertise, attentiveness, and passion — oh, and humor and likeability, too.
And while we’re on the subject of us…
• We never want to forget that we live in Montana for a reason, and things like work should never cloud our ability to appreciate its unique culture, beauty, and outdoor opportunities.
• We take on free or discounted work for a bunch of non-profits and community organizations, because if it’s a good thing for our world and we can help, why shouldn’t we figure out how to help them spread their message?
Our culture. Our reputation. Together these form the core of the Brickhouse brand.
