LET'S FACE IT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE LOVE BRANDS.
Oblique is a ten year-old Boulder, Colorado based creative design agency combining the best traits of brand stewardship and creative mixology. We’ve been a trusted industry source for companies in search of innovative marketing and advertising solutions and have been successful in mixing traditional design and web design with new technology platforms… all while keeping in perspective that it’s still a people-first industry. At Oblique, we’ll help your brand cut through the superficial buzz and develop genuine and honest connections with your audience.
Whether we’re reinventing your brand, developing your online storefront or
something in-between, our primary job is listening to our clients and then
parlaying our insights into transparent marketing communications. Our team of
“creationists” is ready to co-create your next bold move in the marketplace.
From dream to reality and concept to completion, we deliver unmatched, award winning
creative design solutions. When you want to be noticed…be distinctive! Be uniquely Oblique.
Our goal is simply to go where no creative design team has gone before. Truly innovative design requires a mix of seriously hard work, ingenuity and a boatload of trust. We call ourselves “creationists” because we strive to craft something completely new every day. Whether logo design or web design, we bring the trademark “Oblique slant” to every project because as we say, “Great design isn’t just our job, it’s our lives.”
This isn’t our first rodeo. Oblique has been breaking through the noise for over ten years. As a team, we offer decades of advertising experience in a variety of industries. Our collective ad agency backgrounds and expertise provide us the ability to quickly relate to a company’s marketing and design needs allowing us to transform brands from start-up to market domination.
Clients have said that “to know us is to love us,” and we accept that the client is always right! At Oblique we believe this is a people-driven business and understand that we all prefer to work with people we like. It starts with a creative office environment that translates into long-lasting client relationships and friendships. Oh, and just as a disclaimer, we also believe in a strict work hard/play hard mantra… so strap on your seat belts!
Always ambitious and never one to follow status quo, Janice began her advertising and creative design career working in the greater New York City area with a killer pair of heels and clients like Sony, HBO, Pfizer, Nickelodeon, Fox News and AT&T. She was quickly recognized by peers, clients and the creative industry for her conceptual development skills, creative direction and innovative solutions.
Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to launch Oblique in 2002 and make the move to Boulder. From small beginnings, Janice built her roster of diverse ad agency clientele in software technology, renewable energy, health care and the automotive industry.
Janice’s passion, energy and creative vibrancy provide the backbone of Oblique. And her shoe sense provides just the right amount of style.

Also known to colleagues as “The Creative Ninja,” Jeffrey is the anchor at Oblique for his creative design tactics and ability to theorize and communicate conceptual ideas that capture and engage all audiences.
Jeffrey is no stranger to creative design – after all, he drew all over the walls as a toddler. But the real secrets behind his aesthetic sense come from a conservative Japanese background combined with an urban upbringing in Denver. You won’t find him without a sketchbook in hand. Even if there’s a game controller in the other!
With vintage cowboy boots, a contagious smile, and lively spirit – Jacki brings that extra “something” to the Oblique vibe.
