The Price of Admission

Free of Charge! Live Music! Open Bar!  These are a few qualifiers that never fail to draw a crowd. The first makes the wallet of a casual event goer happy and the second assures them they’ll be entertained (for free), while the third sets them up to crack open that very same wallet for other […]

Here at Trampoline, we create a lot of content. How much content? Check out our “30 Days of Logos” series on Instagram. It’s easy to share rebrands and video clips on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, but it’s harder to condense what we do for social media down to 1920 by 1080. Our work for Warren […]

Happy Trampsgiving

We enjoyed a bit of time off for the Thanksgiving holiday. As a matter of fact, on Wednesday we all walked out to our cars together. We swapped stories, shared plans, and maybe talked about the quirky relative we were looking forward to seeing (misbehave). Traditions, though they vary, offer a common thread. It’s often […]

“That’s work?” is something we hear a lot as we post snippets from our days. It’s undeniable that we get to do some pretty fun stuff in pursuit of the shot. Putting a face on things is something we love—that can be places, products, or even events. Is it luck or strategy that so much of we […]

Good designers know that there is always more to learn. It’s an interesting industry to be a part of, like a log rolling contest. The rules and methods are constantly changing, and designers are systematically challenging the status quo. You have to keep shifting your feet to keep up, otherwise you’ll end up in the […]

Hiring someone to run numbers for you is a great idea, and can provide insight into who cares about your organization. Consultants are a great lens to view […]

Drinkin’ on the Job

Recently, the Trampoline crew set off on several photo shoots at breweries across the north country. The crew found themselves calling barrooms “offices” and adding “taste tester” to their job descriptions. These are their stories. TUESDAY | Big Slide Brewery | Lake Placid, New York 9:00 AM – We arrive at the brewery bright and […]

What did you do over summer vacation? That’s the question our kids are answering during their first week of school. For our part, the change in season has produced a bumper crop of online offerings, with more launches planned. Here’s a look at some of the sites of summer, 2016.We planted this shiny little nugget back […]

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. […]

Fly the coop!

We’ve been huge fans of Russell Porreca’s cooking for years (our last office was next door to the original Raúl’s location). Way back when we created packaging for his homemade sauces and dressings and even some custom posters for his walls. We may have even enjoyed a beverage or two there on Margarita night. This winter, […]
