Current Work by VOLTAGE Advertising and Design

If you have yet to attend Louisville, Colorado’s movie in the park this summer, now’s your chance. This Wednesday 12 Food trucks – some of Denver’s most popular – will be there to provide the grub, after which – the Classic original 80′s hit of the Karate Kid will be gracing the big screen. VOLTAGE designed the flyers and website to promote the event and to remind everyone of all the other great restaurants and stores on Louisville’s main street – we’ll be premiering this little video trailer before the film. Take a gander – and check out all these great trucks that’ll be at the park this week : Comida, PinkTank, Waffle Cakes, BICO Truck, Eighty Ate, SaltBox Street Food & Catering, Sweet Cow Ice Cream, Manna From Heaven Gourmet Food Truck & Catering, Cheese Louise Food Truck and Top of the Hill Grill West!

Yes. We like to build stuff! Mostly digital stuff with mouse clicks and pencils and sketchpads, but last Friday we had an opportunity to really get down and dirty and build something in the real world to benefit others in our community.

The VOLTAGE crew spent a full day constructing pieces of a duplex home for Flatirons Habitat for Humanity. It was a perspiring day of team building that allowed us to finish and raise walls, line roofs, and install “real” firewalls.

November’s a great month to give back and give thanks – and we were definitely thankful for desk jobs after the day was done! But it was refreshing to get out of the office and build something with our hands that would benefit another.  As a team we are so thankful this time of year for our clients, partners, friends, and families, and of course, the opportunity to build stuff!


Voltage Agency Van

If you’ve been keeping up with us you may have noticed that we’ve added a new member to our team.  Allow us to explain, VOLTAGE has done a lot of mobile app development, so we figured there’s no better way to celebrate, than buying something, well… mobile. Now, some of you may be asking yourselves “Why do you need a van with more seats than you have employees?” Our response: “250 horsepower, that’s why” so don’t worry about it. Its like our good friend Henry Ford once said, Big Plans need Big Vans*, and we’ve got some big plans for the future, so ignore the logical fallacies and just roll with it.

*Not an actual quote

The beast has all ready traveled extensively and been seen from California to Nevada, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Idaho, and will embark soon on a voyage to the north – very north!  More to come- in the meantime follow it’s escapades and keep up with the beast at www.voltagevan.com.
