PRESS RELEASE: Stronghold Games Unveils New Logo, New Staff Members, New Location

Monday, February 12th, 2018

After its most successful year, Stronghold Games reveals the new company and look

Boynton Beach, Florida – February 12, 2018

Stronghold Games is proud to announce several changes within the company for 2018:

New Staff Members
Two new full-time members of the Stronghold Games team have been onboarded:

Bill Bricker will become the new Director of Art & Marketing at Stronghold Games.  Bill is veteran of the games i ndustry, starting in the mid-1980s as a freelancer on Dungeons & Dragons products and White Wolf Magazine. More recently, Bill has done work for Arcane Wonders, Dead General’s Society, Eagle Gryphon Games, Gamelyn Games, R&R Games, and many more. Bill has been working part-time at Stronghold Games for the past 5 years, and now has been promoted to full-time Director status. Bill has been married for 30 years to his high school sweetheart and has two children.

Pauline Milano will become the new Director of Administration at Stronghold Games. Pauline, an avid gamer for well over 20 years, is new to the game industry.  Pauline brings a strong background in office management, customer service, bookkeeping, social media, and marketing.  Pauline has her BFA in Theater Production from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. Pauline has been assisting Stronghold Games with conventions and customer service activities for several years, and now has been promoted to full-time Director status. Pauline is the proud mother of a 22-year-old gamer.

 

New Location
Stronghold Games has moved its office from Somerset, New Jersey to Boynton Beach, Florida. The office is now in a temporary location in this city, and will move to its permanent location in Boynton Beach, Florida by the end of March.

New Logo
Stronghold Games is introducing a new logo for 2018 and beyond.  Designed by Bill Bricker, this logo reimagines the original logo, which has been used by Stronghold Games since the company’s inception in 2009. The new Stronghold Games logo retains the look of a looming castle as well as the bold red and black colors, both of which have been a hallmark of the company. The new Stronghold Games logo is a more modern, cleaner design. This new vector-based logo also will be more easily reproduced at any size.

“This is an important moment in Stronghold Games history, as we exit our most successful year”, said Stephen Buonocore, President of Stronghold Games. “With the continuing growth of the company, it is time to add new talent with both an eye toward diversity and insider/outsider industry knowledge. We mark this moment as well with a new logo – a new representation of Stronghold Games.”

Orders from the Stronghold Games website received by Sunday, 12/17/2017 at 11:59pm ET will ship prior to Christmas Day.

Any order received after this time will be shipped most likely the first week of January 2018, due to our warehouse closure. Of course, we cannot guarantee delivery times from USPS and UPS, which are our primary shippers, and we sadly cannot offer any expedited shipping means at this time.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Happy Holidays!

We at Stronghold Games wish you, your friends, and your families the very best that the holiday season has to offer!
