America’s Favorite Boat Brand
Bertram Yachts & their brokerage division Richard Bertram Yachts needed a quick and seamless marketing transition as the company restructured. Made in the USA, their legacy yachts have a sincere and massive fan following. We are in charge of maintaining their brand image, promoting the new Bertram 61, rolling out the new Bertram 50, and showcasing the Bertram 35. Each platform we market on is tied to a larger marketing strategy. A project like this truly exciting and fun for us to handle. The company is rich in history, and it has been our pleasure to help expand the Bertram Empire.

BASED IN THE USA, BUILT IN SOUTH AFRICA
meticulously built & fully equipped.
This spacious 62ft catamaran was kept entirely quiet and offline until its World Premiere at the United States Sailboat Show’s 50th Anniversary. Building out a brand with this much attention to detail with a global team was exciting and downright fun.

Designed by parents, for parents. Snuggin allows you to attach pacifiers, teethers, or any other baby toys to its Velcro arms and legs to keep them close and easy to find at all times. We had fun doing the initial product photo shoot with the founders of Snuggin. Monkey Fist advised them on strategic social planning and website design. They went on to have hundreds of 5-Star Amazon reviews and expanded their product offerings. I just love when a vision becomes a reality!

BuilderGuru - Maryland’s leading general contractor with the most award-winning projects in the state. Their portfolio includes: schools, hospitals, yacht clubs, restaurants, LEED projects, banks, and many more categories.
