• Spreading Peace

    Speaking about the front panel he has created for the Genesee Studio, Silas Pandori of 10Red writes, "There is something simple and pure about Spring as everything is coming back to life. The child in the illustration represents this feeling of innocence and life. My wife and I are bringing a child into the world any day now as well.

  • Mountain Goats

    On the first Sunday in May, Strategist Margaret Lee and Senior Design Director Andy Schweitzer were among the 2,000+ runners who challenged the hills of the Mountain Goat Run in Syracuse. In its 37th year, the race takes runners from the city's downtown up to some of the highest points in the west and east neighborhoods, requiring 15-story climbs but providing great views.

  • Lake Loop

    Can one drive all the way around Skaneateles Lake (which is 16 miles long) in one lunch hour? Two carloads of Chase employees were brave enough to try, and enjoyed an al fresco five-minute luncheon with a group photo at the scenic overlook.

  • Faux Post

    Mail Art lives in a quiet corner of the art world, a genre of works sent through the mail, with the postal journey and markings being a part of the process. And in a corner of Mail Art, you will find artistamps – faux postage – tiny, gummed descendants of 19th and 20th century poster stamps (mostly advertising a product or an event) and “cinderella” stamps that look like postage stamps but serve some other purpose.

  • Ominous

    "We may be seeing a rather ominous pattern shift developing by next weekend."
    -- National Weather Service, Buffalo Office, March 25, 2016

    On the first Sunday in April – the month whose showers traditionally bring May flowers – 3,700 runners took to the streets for the Syracuse Half Marathon.

    "The first four miles weren’t bad," said ChaseDesign Senior Design Director Andy Schweitzer, who was running in his third Syracuse Half, “but then the sky got dark and the hail started.”

  • Snowy Summits

    In early March, the ChaseDesign Adirondack High Peaks Hiking Club took to the mountains again, this time summiting snowy Dial and Nippletop Mountains.

    Shod with the hiker’s choice of microspikes or snowshoes, the group passed through the Elven Gate to Mirkwood Forest at 5:05 a.m., lighting the way with headlamps.

  • A Deluxe Ride for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

    This March, when the Skaneateles High School presents the musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the title role will be played by a car created by Design Director Todd Abernethy of ChaseDesign, who last year created a vintage pickup truck for the school’s production of State Fair. But that one didn’t have to fly.
