Beacon Bank hired Tripine Creative on retainer in the Summer of 2014 to take on the re-branding of all Beacon Bank marketing materials, as well as over hauling and redesigning their outdated HTML web site. Within six months Tripine Creative had everything completed, re-branded and rolling. Including a gorgeous new responsive/mobile WordPress web site that helped jump start their online banking launch.

By the end of 2015, and with 3 Metro and 2 Duluth locations – Beacon Bank was approached by a few larger Regional banks in regards to selling their locations – and eventually sold their client base and assets to Alerus Financial and took on the corporate name and entity in April of 2016.
