We love seeing synergistic collaboration of local business!

At Variety Studios, we are happy to enable it in any way we can!

In this instance, a while back, we created a versatile and cost effective label layout for Talking Cursive Brewing Company. This template was built on a foundation of supplied brand elements and designed in a style and manner where @rhadzor can doodle up illustrations under the direction of the brewers themselves as they release delicious cans and bottles!

This illustration was based on supplied reference of fantastic lore near and dear to The Brae Loch Inn and the label tells some of the story of the shared history of these two great local businesses.

So, go ahead and get your curbside pick up on!

We now offer our Silver Scot Scottish Ale in 500ML bottles. Created by Talking Cursive Brewing Compnany, just for us! Perfect for take out!

What would you name your trail beer?

Psyched to collaborate with Buried Acorn Brewing Company to support the mountain bike community, via Cny-Dirt !

#CNYTrailBeer

In collaboration with Variety Studios, Buried Acorn Brewing will be releasing a special edition beer in Spring 2020 and a portion of the proceeds will benefit CNY D.I.R.T trail building.

The beer is planned to be a ‘Pils-Gnar’ (pilsner) and there will be a naming contest. Names may be submitted by tagging @buriedacornbrewing and using the hashtag #cnytrailbeer on social media. Submissions will be accepted until December 1, 2019.

The winner of the naming competition will be announced at the Syracuse Bicycle Fat Bike drawing on December 2, 2019 and will receive a $50.00 gift card to Buried Acorn Brewing. Buried Acorn Brewing Company

While most agencies probably advise that you stay at the forefront of everyones mind, expand your reach, pay for clicks, convert convert blah blah blah... rather it is our opinion at Variety Studios that you should do what you love, do it the best that you can, and do it uniquely as you.

When you are passionate and dedicated, it's inevitable that you will reach expert status. When you know something inside and out, that's where you can create real value for real people.

We couldn't help but share this beautiful little insight from our friends at Speed Science Coaching. A digital diet sounds like an amazing refresher for the body, mind and soul.

(Yes, we also shared it because they are making the cycling kit we designed for them look damn good in that photo.)

Go outside. Be curious. Do great things!

We're returning from the wilderness of a summer away from social media. If you haven't taken a digital diet, I highly recommend it. I'm a pretty light user and Rachel doesn't even have an account on any SM platform, but it's still amazing how nice it is to be completely free from all the noise and things that compete for our attention.

We'll be catching up over the next week or so with all the amazing things Speed Science athletes have been up to over the last few months.

Photo taken on our adventure ride last week exploring the edges of the Sentinel Wilderness.

Elevating Erie

#CloseTheGap

If you are like us, you have been waiting with bated breath for an announcement of the next step for the Empire State Trail project! New York State released the FINAL Empire State Trail Plan in June of 2018, you can find the proposed route through Central New York on page 19 (see link in the comments). We have been busy working behind the scenes to prepare for the next steps in the implementation of the Empire State Trail!

At the heart of Elevating Erie is a mission to unite the community through story and idea sharing. This video spotlights traditions, stories, and ideas from the community. Curated and produced in collaboration by the Town of DeWitt and City Lore , New York City's Urban Folklife Center.

We want to tell the world about the exciting opportunities that the Empire State Trail investment has in store for Central New York - we spent some time over this past year documenting trail rides, talking with cyclists and businesses, and gathering footage of all that this area has to offer - as a result we have developed this amazing video that tells our story! Happy watching!

Check it out! Sascha won two National Titles at the masters indoor track and field championships last weekend.

We think it is particularly excellent that she won wearing a regular ol' cotton tee.

You can have all the fancy tech gear in the world, but in the end it's all about hard work and doing what you do!

Way to go Sascha!

Sascha Scott took two national titles at the USATF Masters Indoor Track and Field National Championships in Landover, Maryland. She ran two aggressive races, charging hard from the front and putting down the fastest times of the day in both the women’s 1500 meters (4:37) and 800 meters (2:17). Well done, Sascha!

Check out this super cool video that highlights some of the little bits that cumulatively make the Syracuse, New York #running community so awesome!

Great work! Ed, Ellen, Fleet Feet Sports Syracuse, New Balance, Ashley Arnold, Trine Films and everyone that made it happen!

Also, even more huge thanks to the many individuals who, for years and years, continue to do unique and wonderful things that really make Syracuse a special place and influence the community to become the way it is.. Kitty Hoynes Irish Pub & Restaurant, Jerry, William -- luckily -- there are WAY too many people to list here.. but we see you.. keep doing awesome stuff.. you never know who you'll inspire.
