Sentinel Forge successfully relaunched its brand with a new look and is one of the top-rated blacksmith classes on the west coast.

The Challenge

With a cross-country move, Sentinel Forge decided to take the opportunity to redesign and relaunch the brand. Starting in a new marketing, the blacksmithing education program needed a new look and an updated website. Sentinel Forge came to Offset Marketing to create a full brand identity and reconstruct the website before reopening classes in a new market.

The Process

As the main strategist and designer, I started with an in-depth strategy meeting to get to know exactly the “why” behind Sentinel Forge. After exploring the current marketing and branding while conducting competitive research I developed four initial logo concepts and discussed the likes and dislikes with Sentinel Forge. From those concepts, we chose one he wanted to move forward with and we created some design magic. Finally, we landed on a historic and classic logo to represent blacksmithing perfectly. As part of the brand identity process, we created a whole package including a full logo suite, fully designed business system, brand elements, and web design. 

The Solution

Sentinel Forge successfully relaunched its brand with a new look and is one of the top-rated blacksmith classes on the west coast.

Zest Dental Solutions

Zest Dental is one of the largest dental implant manufacturers in the U.S. Their primary audiences are Dentists at offices across the country who perform surgery with dental implants. Some challenges I faced were

  • The client is a leader in the space which makes new customer acquisition strategies/expansion more difficult 
  • They had no great offers to use in their campaigns 
  • Sophisticated B2B audience
  • Brand loyalty to competitors in the market


The strategy

I began by leveraging the client’s existing data and Google’s machine learning algorithm to ensure that we’re targeting users most likely to convert. The goal was to feed the algorithm with the best data possible so we could go after new customers searching for non-branded terms.


After sufficiently utilizing campaign structures to segment the customer journey map in Google Ads, I began a substantial increase in ad spend to scale this account while maintaining an optimal ROAS.


Once we established a great search ads structure, we began to move higher in the funnel utilizing Google display, discovery and video campaigns for new customer acquisition.
