Reading Time: 3 minutes “You could say I’m a regular,” Caroline Crasnick confides. Only, she isn’t talking about Portland’s hottest new speakeasy or artisan brewpub.

Trueline Spotlight: Gift of Gab

Reading Time: 3 minutes Kyle Gahm has been with Trueline almost as long as the company has been in Maine—seven years out of nine—and there’s evidence of that. His attorney segment in U.S. Business Executive was such a huge hit, it prompted Trueline to launch its own law-focused journal: Vanguard. But for all his staying power and ideas, Gahm’s…

TLP Spotlight: Life is Just One High Seas Adventure

Reading Time: 2 minutes By the time you’re 29, you’re lucky if you’ve seen three boats up close—of any size. Getting to ride on three boats?

Trueline Spotlight: She Knows What Colors the Walls Will Be

Reading Time: 2 minutes Marcela Zuluaga—soon to be Marcela Carr—does not speak “carpet language,” so it took a while for her to convey all the details to the contractors who will be replacing that gray, stringy stuff on the office floor.

TLP Spotlight: He refuses to Wear Jeans, but His Art is Great

Reading Time: 2 minutes A family guy, an artist, Trueline’s art director, and a guy with a hard-to-pronounce last name, Neill Ewing-Wegmann is many things.

TLP Spotlight: A way with words

Reading Time: 2 minutes If the story involves an obscure Boston Bruin from the 1980’s or a folk singer you’ve never heard of, chances are Neil Cote’s telling it. That’s when you know it’s gonna be good—just like the stories he writes. “I’ve always been stringing words together,” says Cote, who’s occupied the Trueline writer’s den since November 2016….

TLP Spotlight: Productive by design

Reading Time: 2 minutes It’s rare to find Charlie Herbst sitting idle. Indeed, the native of the land of 10,000 lakes describes himself as a “reserved workaholic.” That’s not just in his role as Trueline’s production designer—a position he’s held for the past year-and-a-half—but throughout his personal life, as well.
