Depth of Field

In search of a videographer with drive to narrate, chronicle, and produce content for clients in the outdoor adventure industry, higher education, healthcare, and non-profit spaces. If you’re enthusiastic about getting out there—mountain top, college campus, cityscape, or boardroom—and capturing emotion and excitement, then it’s time to call “Action!” on this opportunity. Responsibilities: Shoot and […]

Putting UX above the fold

Below, a few examples of recently launched websites that do more than just communicate. Our approach to user experience takes careful consideration of our audience and how they will interact with a particular brand online. High Falls Gorge Embedded video was the easiest way to communicate the rush of a visit to Wilmington, New York’s […]

Donation communication: Standing out for a cause

It’s Giving Tuesday, 2020: a year that has pushed non-profit organizations to the brink organizationally, and financially. It’s become a Tramp tradition to use this day to point potential donors toward our causes and clients, who are working hard to make a difference. We also love linking our consumer brand clients to non-profit partnerships because […]

An Outbreak of Optimism

So much of what has happened in the last 6 months has been negative. There is certainly no shortage of material out there covering the declining economy, government failure, the sick and dying, failing small businesses and the list goes on. As a small business owner (and to hang on to a sliver of sanity) […]

Graphic design at world’s end: Recognizing the need to keep communicating

World’s end, too dramatic? Maybe.  But right now, California is burning, millions are infected with a virus that has isolated, well, everyone. Entire industries have collapsed. We’ve watched, helplessly, as professional sports ride the bench as a whole, to protect their health (or denounce inequality). We shook our heads as our favorite shows and movies […]

Time to define: what happens next?

We’ve moved beyond “unprecedented” as the adjective of the moment. The novelty of remote work and Zoom calls has faded. Headlines like New Normal and Uncertain Future run, while articles speculate on loan forgiveness and unemployment rates. Things can seem so overwhelming that we struggle to being coping with COVID-19 anxiety, fatigue, and depression. We […]

Respect the Spend

Is mountain biking the perfect activity? Exercise and adventure, socially distant outdoor destinations, and fun technical equipment…sounds like it to me. Based on the numbers, a lot of people are pedaling in that same direction. Mountain bike sales are up 150% in 2020.* Even before COVID 19 completely rearranged the leisure activity landscape, mountain bikers were […]

Design Deferred

…with apologies to Langston Hughes. Today, July 13th, marks 4 months since we locked up our studio and began to create remotely. Home office setups became the place for designing-while-parenting, pet photobombs, and laundry debacles… while each Zoom Conference / Google Meet / Microsoft Teams streamed it all for clients and coworkers alike. We use […]

Support your workforce

There have always been kids at Trampoline. Since 2003 we’ve worked to create a culture that puts family first, knowing full well that it’s easier to be creative when things are good at home. That founding principle—Family First—has taken on a deeper meaning as we collaborate from the confines of our living rooms. On the […]

A reintroduction:

Trampoline helps companies and organizations make the most of any situation. Even when faced with remote-work challenges, video conference buffering, and parenting-while-creating, these seven clients have used their Q2 wisely. They’re making adjustments, or acquisitions, and are communicating their position in the best way imaginable.   Pick your path First things first ^ fruit pun! […]
