Trapper believes in great storytelling.

Trapper was created to bridge the gap between the story creation process and the way we live our modern lives. 

Inspiration comes in unexpected moments. Sometimes it hits while sipping a cup of coffee, during a long walk, on a bike ride, even when watching a movie or reading book. Yet, when we sit down to work, we expect to be able to flick it on like a switch. 

By trapping your ideas in the moments of inspiration, work becomes a creative time of developing captured ideas. Ideally, this means less time working and more time to get out, enjoy life and be inspired.  

— Ideas & Narratives —

Ideas can be anything; a scene in a story, a joke, a compelling quote, or simply an idea that popped into your head. All ideas are building blocks to a bigger story to tell.

A narrative is a compiled collection of ideas. It could be a novel, speech, business presentation, article or a comedy sketch. You build your story by adding new ideas to the narrative, re-organizing and editing within the narrative as needed.
