Don't Be Afraid To Ask For Help - The key to building successful outdoor brands and nonprofits with James Moffitt of TrailHead Creative

Life in Motion

In this episode we interview James Moffitt who is a cyclist, outdoorsman and owner of TrailHead Creative. As a Boy Scout it didn't take long for James to find a love for the outdoors. While in college he studied English, but after helping his bike shop market themselves better he decided to apply to branding school. This is where James found his true passion - and eventually a career. He enjoyed helping brands such as Capital One and the NBA tell their story, but even more so he loved helping small businesses share theirs. That's why he started TrailHead creative to help small, outdoor driven businesses. One of his favorite clients is Beyond Boundaries, a nonprofit that believes adventure is for everyone. Not only does he help share their story and impact, but he also volunteers with their many outdoor activities. If you've ever wondered why it's important to tell your story, or why you shouldn't be afraid to ask for help when starting something new, then this one's for you!

102: Bizhan Khodabandeh & James Moffitt – MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast

MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast

The world these days is far from easy to understand. Sometimes there’s an answer and sometimes there isn’t. And sometimes, it takes all we have to find a way to even try to comprehend everything. But perhaps that’s where art comes into play. Maybe, just maybe, our sight becomes a little clearer when we break it down into more of an expression than trying to fit a round understanding in a square hole. In the case of The Little Red Fish by Bizhan Khodabandeh and James Moffit, a simple, yet powerful story is told and it’s all inspired by the Iranian revolution in 1979. Nah, that’s not complicated to explain. In this Making Comics Gutter Talk episode, Adam is joined by Bizhan and James to discuss how this story came about and what makes this story have such an impact. There’s also something to be said about the use of animals as the characters, a la Animal Farm by George Orwell, which is another side of the story Adam and his guests dive into. Following this discussion, Adam and Bizhan are left to their own devices as they discuss another project Bizhan was a part of. It involves violence between civilians and police, and soon the conversation turns to a more personal experience for both Adam and Bizhan. In the end, both host and guest ensure the audience they are far from experts on the subject and only drives home the point that there simply is no easy or right answer to the burning, violent questions we face as humans today. But at least there’s comics!
