YOU BUILD GREAT PLACES we build great brands What’s Behind the Numbers? Studio 2055’s identity signifies more than a series of numbers. Behind the numbers is a dedicated group of creative designers, writers and marketing experts who together form a company that is greater than the sum of its parts. Our Strength Lies in Our Studio Brand Value Approach to Design Our creative processes are engaged when you know where you want to go. We chart your course using our Brand Equity Value™ (BEV), a propriety system developed by the Studio to determine your company’s values, core message and points ofdifference. This process allows us to uncover valuable information critical to the marketing investment. It guides the Studio in planning strategies to attract and inform your target audience. We realize that time is money – for our clients and ourselves. That’s why we are always mindful of budgets and project schedules. Above all, we offer outstanding client services to our customers. And that is something money can’t buy.

Their mission is to build strong relationships and provide cost-effective structural solutions. Building on over 80 years of family history, Hope-Amundson services include new building design, renovations and design/ build delivery.
