Concrete. Like the sidewalk, except not.
Anthony Armstrong is an anomaly. His talent is a weathered mixture of carpentry-meets-masonry-meets-hard work AND design-meets-drafting-meets-ideas that fit in an art gallery as much as they do a home.
He is equal parts artist and entrepreneur. His medium of choice is concrete. His company is Armstrong Stone.
The process of casting and molding concrete is highly detailed and offers a kind of customization not possible with other materials. The conference table here at Trampoline is concrete (thanks Anthony) and gets nothing but compliments. Anthony listened to our thoughts on color and texture, and shared his own ideas.
We reversed the process when Trampoline designed the Armstrong Stone logo, business system and capabilities brochure.
