What’s the best part about where you are? You can almost hear the Sinatra in this fifties throwback by Allison, who puts the kitch in kitchenette. The Stardust in […]

Socially distant. Creatively consistent.

Six weeks into quarantine, but who’s counting? We are. Counting website hits, conversions, sales. Yes, counting billable hours. Counting on people to do the right thing. We’re counting on each other.

A Going Concern

We spend a lot of time sharing destination marketing campaigns like the work we’ve done for Vail Resorts, or placemaking campaigns for municipalities like the City of Oneonta, NY.

Motion to compel

Shiny objects and shorter attention spans. That’s what it comes down to. Here are nine, easy examples of how to incorporate motion into your marketing, because it’s no longer enough to just put yourself out there, you also have to dance.

Unlimited Screen Time

First and foremost, we’re not what you’d call a web shop. Design, advertising, and campaign creative is really more our bailiwick. Repeat impressions, hilarious headlines, and content choices are how we execute a successful market strategy. While we’re not often elbow deep in open-source, it’s understood at the Trampoline studio that effective website design (and […]

Does Your Brand Still Fit?

We’re expecting a string of sunny days over the next week. It’s what our friends at Fountain Square call, “local summer.” You grab the summery clothes bound for storage and give them one last wear on a hike, trip to the lake or backyard barbecue. We dig deep into the gratitude well and revel in […]
