Superheroes of Design

Close up of comic

When I learned that Marvel Studios patriarch Stan Lee passed away recently, it struck a chord with me. I collected Marvel comic books and trading cards growing up; it’s largely what sparked my interest in drawing and graphic design. I filled countless notebooks with sketches of Spider Man and Wolverine, and monopolized the TV watching […]

Planting Roots

Of all the rebrands I’ve been involved with at Trampoline, Capital Roots holds a special place on the list. The partnership between Trampoline and Capital Roots began in 2014, when Executive Director Amy Klein reached out to rebrand an organization then known as Capital District Community Gardens. They had outgrown the name, which dated back […]

Tips for the Yosemite Traveler

[Photos & video below] As an East Coast kid, California seemed like a fairytale world where movies were made and surf bums lived out their days in Volkswagen vans in search of the epic wave. I admired it from a distance like a child admires his or her favorite superhero; unsure whether I’d ever get […]

A Year in Review

2016 has been a whirlwind of activity here at Trampoline. Not only have we added some amazing new clients; we’ve also barnstormed across nine states for photo shoots, meetings and book tours; saw the launch of two websites; built our relationship with longtime clients; and stacked our team with three new Tramps: Staci Oswald, Rob […]

A Mellow Blend Of Work And Play

Back in September, a crack team of Tramps traveled to SUNY ESF’s Newcomb Campus: a world-class research & field station located in the geographic center of the Adirondack Park. We were tasked with capturing photo and video of the ESF conference facilities and team-building curriculum for use in  a campaign that will be equal parts business-to-business […]

Paul Smith’s College, Illustrated

When Paul Smith’s College approached us about a reboot of their campus map earlier this year, the designers here instantly got excited. Maps are a specialty for Trampoline, with styles ranging from illustrative to informative. For a designer, it’s a fun challenge to create a map that is memorable and achieves the goal of being simple to use. […]

Choices, Choices

Living and working in the Lake George Area has many perks. Topping the list for me is the ability to throw some gear in a pack, hop in my car and in just a half an hour be in a place where you can no longer hear the buzz of the city. I feel like I cheated. […]

Dreams Do Exist

Hunter Mountain’s annual resort magazine Hunter Mountain Life is on press. It’s my second year as lead designer on the magazine, and Trampoline’s third year producing the mag. It’s been a labor of love, taking the better part of five months to produce from concept to completion. It’s a good feeling when a project of […]

The West (Mountain) Is The Best

East coast skiers are accustomed to sketchy conditions. There’s a reason we have “rock” skis at-the-ready for days when snow is thin. In fact, they usually get more use than our more favored sticks. But every once in a great while, we get lucky. The same storm pattern that’s dumped 100 inches on Boston has left east […]

2015 Winter Board Meeting

After a week that saw the launch of our new website (cue kazoos and confetti) and with 2014 now in the rearview mirror, the Trampoline team was ready for a little R&R. So on Tuesday, we traded mouse and pencil for skis and boards and headed to the Catskills for a day of skiing at Hunter Mountain Resort. Our […]
