Trigger to add account and contact info to a custom object "after insert"

Hi All,

I have a situation where i need to insert 2 fields from account and the few fields from contact(related to account) to a custom object . Is it possible using triggers?
1. When does this need to happen ? Upon Contact creation or Account creation or when one of these update ?
2. Is the new object to related to account or contact ?

This can be defenitely done through trigger.

@SFDC9999 1.)It needs to happen when contact is created.
2.)It deosn't have a relationship with either of them but i think i need to create lookup on account only theni can access it i guess.
Here is something to start , i have a object Relationship which has a lookup to Contact . Every time a contact is created then a relationship record is created with contact details . You can get more fields added here if you need . 

rigger createRelationship on Contact (after insert) 
        List<Relationship__c> Relationship = new List<Relationship__c>();
        for (Contact con : 
            Relationship__c rl = new Relationship__c();
            rl.Contact__c = Con.Id;
            rl.Employee__c = Con.Logged_in_User__c;
            rl.Functional_Area__c = Con.Functional_Area__c;
            rl.Contact_Key_Skills__c = Con.KeySkills__c;
        insert Relationship;
