Season 1 / Episode 3: “Avoid the Logo Slap” with Travis Ladue of Mast

Denver is a city growing in much the way as Atlanta. At the forefront of their growth are controversial topics like legalization of marijuana, and long-time passions for the outdoors and the arts. The design scene is experiencing growth as well. One of the agencies making their mark is Mast.

Mast is spearheaded by Travis Ladue; a designer, thinker, and insightful gent. Travis has been building Mast with a dedication to brand as business. Whether it’s with Mast’s clients or with the studio itself, they have a firm belief in branding in its truest sense. On this episode we chat about their thinking and how they avoid the “logo slap” mentality with their clients and their work.

I wish I would’ve kept the “tape” rolling because we continued the conversation after the podcast. There were some great things discussed unrecorded, but that means we’ll have to get him back on soon! In the meantime, enjoy the episode. Here’s where you can find Mast and Travis online:
