We are your creative partner.
TrailBlaze is an award-winning creative firm that provides project-based and sustained marketing and communications support to organizations dedicated to amplifying community vibrancy. From the beginning, we wanted TrailBlaze to be different. Our clients include nonprofits, small businesses, and communities or municipalities. Our clients are community-minded organizations desiring to create a better environment for its audiences. Just like you, we are dedicated to doing our part to change the world. It starts with building vibrant communities.
TrailBlaze supports those seeking dynamic and innovative change. We build and engage communities through intentional, human-centered marketing and design. Equipped with industry experience, a youthful curiosity to create, and a spirit of disruption, we work to bring mission-based stories to life.
We believe marketing should be agile, innovative, and rewarding, and the way we deliver services reflects this agility. Most clients have similar general goals, encounter common problems, and try to use the exact generic solutions. We rely on our decades of expertise in the various disciplines making up the modern marketing and communications field to create solutions that are unique and impactful.
TrailBlaze is committed to building better regional systems. We subscribe to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and are working on analyzing our impact as a firm in the same way many of our clients gauge their own SDG impact. We prefer to walk alongside our clients in true partnership fashion. We are fun people who produce impactful work.
TrailBlaze is committed to continuing to add to our already diverse team. Our corporate culture truly celebrates adding diverse voices to our team. We have team members with permanent mental and physical disabilities, varied ethnic and racial backgrounds, sexual orientations, and perspectives, all of which contribute to our unique project approach. We have a DEI Officer who provides DEI capacity support to organizations and also trains our internal team on trends, biases, and cultural elements that impact our work and our world.
Our vision is a well-informed world fueled by creativity, logic, and heart.
Our mission is to use our creative powers to encourage humans to do good work.
