TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — If you spend enough time on these mountains, you will surely hear someone say they’re stoked.

Whether they’re stoked on a cliff jump or just a warm day on the lake, it is not uncommon to be very stoked living the mountain lifestyle. Truckee’s one-man graphic design company, “Visual Stoke” offers a more specific category of excitement.

“I chose the name ‘Visual Stoke’ for this company because I strive to make my clients excited about the designs that I produce for them,” said Visual Stoke owner Spencer Collinson. “I wanted a name that resembled mountain culture and graphic design at the same time. When the name Visual Stoke popped into my head, it made me laugh because it was pretty different, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. I think when people begin to see my vision unfold it will make more sense to them, too.”

Having graduated in 2011 from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in design management, Spencer said he is happy to apply his education toward something about which he is passionate.

Aside from college in Tempe, Ariz., Spencer has lived in Truckee for all of his 25 years. He explains, “I moved back here after school because I realized that I’m really just more of a mountain guy than a desert guy. Everyone here is awesome and the scenery is hard to beat.”
