We believe design has the power to change hearts and minds. It can start a movement, feed a community and spark dialogue. With that kind of power, we have a responsibility to do work that makes a difference for people who make a difference. Our Ranger Oath is simple:
Lead with purpose
Design with empathy
Some would call him old. We call him wise. Chris has 20 years of experience in marketing, creative direction and results-driven print and web design. He’s the world’s greatest question asker, so please don’t challenge him to 21 Questions – for all of our sakes. And not to brag, but Chris was the 2014 AAF Colorado Springs Creative of the Year and recipient of the 2018 Silver Medal Award. #humblebrag
Favorite Sky Mall purchase
My Hoka One One® shoes – basically platforms of comfort.
Most likely to use tracing paper full of illegible scribbles as kindling for a campfire.
favorite pop-culture reference
“Do or do not. There is no try.”
Jenny is an award-winning designer with 20 years of marketing, print and branding experience. Her clean, timeless design style means her logos are often selected by clients – fortunately none of us are bitter about that. Best of all, she can see both sides of a campfire story, which makes her incredibly empathic, receptive to new ideas, and open-minded.
Despite a sheepish enthusiasm for the spotlight, Jenny’s authenticity has brought thousands of people to tears as Keynote Speaker for Care and Share’s Recipe for Hope, Pikes Peak Community College’s 2018 graduation ceremony, TESSA’s Encore Gala and on the Colorado Springs TEDx stage.
Worst thing to receive in the mail
Most likely to have woodland creatures break out into song and dance when she walks by.
Favorite show to quote
The Office. “Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.” ~ Michael Scott
project manager, partner
Sam is our very own Indiana Jones. Whether it be timelines, budgets, or project expectations, she’s the one who holds the whip and keeps all of us on track. She’s friendly, optimistic, efficient, and believes that the best led projects consist of clear and honest communication. Not only is she one hell of a project manager, but she’s an award-winning copywriter who’s been known to come up with headlines in 10 seconds flat.
Best place for queso
Give me a harder question.
T-Byrds Tacos & Tequila. I can neither confirm nor deny they know my order by heart.
Most likely to befriend a family of bears and train them in a synchronized dance of “I Want it That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.
“That’s what she said.”
Lindsay is our certified Magician. That may seem bold, but when you can make something out of nothing – that’s nothing short of amazing. She specializes in publication and web design with a passion for elements that provide surprise-and-delight for the end user. A true believer that design only works if it’s effective, she’s won more Addy’s than we can fit in our hiking packs.
what does chris stock in the snack drawer for you?
Lays Kettle Cooked Jalapeño Cheddar Chips®.
Most likely to hoard all of her nuts in her cheeks like a chipmunk until winter is over.
greatest pet peeve
People touching me with wet hands. I literally shake just thinking about it.
Our newest ranger traveled the farthest distance to join our camp. Paloma is originally from Puerto Rico, home of the very first piña colada. Have we gotten the chance to taste Paloma’s homemade piña colada? Well, we don’t drink and tell. Our hardcore daydreamer keeps her head in the clouds and her feet on the ground – racking up 5 Student Addy’s for graphic design and illustration between 2018-2019. She loves to be helpful and supportive – and we just love her easy-going, harmonious spirit.
To own a flying DeLorean and be able to travel through time as I please.
Most likely to wander around the forest making friends with the trees.
