For brands that really want to fly

Think of us as your brand’s personal pit crew. We create a clear space where your brand components can be assembled and fine-tuned.

It’s important that you know where the components come from, and it’s essential that everything fits together perfectly. But what’s most critical is that the end product is delivered with the highest level of skill and integrity.

Monitoring and servicing your brand ensures ongoing recognition and peak performance. If it’s time for a brand review, we don’t hold back from advising our clients on what to keep and what to throw out. Great leaders and innovators know when their brand is starting to wear thin, and when it’s time for an upgrade. Sometimes a whole rebuild is in order. That’s ok too, as we’re all racing in one of the most challenging and competitive times in business history. Face it, if your brand mechanics are kept in top condition, your customers have no reason to jump ship.

We’re not suited to working with just anyone though, we offer an exclusive and tailored approach. It’s not that we’re precious about our work, far from it. It’s just that we expect our clients to be as excited and informed about their brands as we are.

Our clients are the focus of our service; we are efficient, reliable and here to listen. We engineer the essential building blocks for your brand, and piece by piece it all fits together to deliver a total brand story.

If you're a start-up and your brand is just hatching, or you don’t need to develop a full identity package and just want to reboot a few elements, no problem. We’ll work alongside you and your team with an equal amount of purpose and vision, regardless of the size or scale of your project.

TERENCE BERGAGNA

FOUNDER - CHIEF STORY TELLER

Passionate rascal, brand stalker, typographic evangelist? Just a few of the more subtle phrases used by clients and contemporaries to describe him. Creative technology strategist sounds about right. Ask him about social media trends and an hour into the monologue you will have learnt about the re-birth of the Memphis movement, and how for a few years the only fonts he used were Gill and Bodoni. When it comes to design, it always starts and ends with the story; some say he's obsessed, but he wears it like a badge of honor.

TINA TRAN

OPERATIONS MANAGER

For someone who comes from a business and hospitality background, Tina really knows a lot about how brands and people fit together. She would have made a great anthropologist, but her passion for commerce and creative management led her to the world of design first. Officially, she’s head of business services, but really, she’s Casa’s conductor, making sure everyone hits the right notes at the right time. She’s a born leader, fearless navigator, and knows the exact time for a Nutella donut break.

Casa Forte is located in Melbourne. The studio is nestled in the heart of Brunswick,
the coffee roasting capital of Australia.

Whether you’re creating, developing, or managing a brand, we’re ready to work along side you at any stage. Your next great success can start with a friendly chat.

Visiting the studio is strictly by appointment only. (We don't accept half strength, decaf,
soy latte types!)

You can call us on (61 3) 9982 1600, or if you have a question or two, drop us a line and we'll get right back to you.
