Colin Trenter

Founder | Creative Director @ Oddfellows

San Francisco, CA, USA
I’m a founder and creative director at Oddfellows.

For the past decade, I’ve partnered with select clients who have big ideas in need of careful handling. I’m a maker at heart, with a background in design and animation. My passion is creating authentic and meaningful content that is visually stunning - with a focus on quality over quantity.

In 2014, I co-founded the creative studio Oddfellows to make compelling creative work for a select list of brands that we respect. Since its inception, we’ve nurtured an amazing creative team, expanded our operations from San Francisco to Portland and won a prestigious list of awards; including agency of the year in 2017.

Prior to that, I worked as a motion designer at the creative studio Autofuss and robotics company Bot & Dolly before they were acquired by Google in 2014.

In quiet times, you will find me tinkering in the kitchen, scaling pristine granite in Yosemite Valley, or exploring the seaside with my wonderful wife Jen.
