New Year, New Oblique

With the fresh start of a new year (Happy 2017, everyone!), also comes reflection and resolutions. Team Oblique couldn’t be happier with the projects we completed, the clients we worked with and the growth we have gained as a company.

Last year, Oblique made the big decision to give our portfolio a complete makeover. Our updated and improved portfolio contains new projects and an original look. We went even further and created a micro-site (obliqueslant.com) to give potential clients a quick (and might we add, beautifully designed) overview of what Oblique offers. It’s different from what you’ll see on your average Colorado design blog and that’s what we’re after.

For Oblique’s new portfolio, we demonstrate how our Boulder interactive agency creates a fully rounded brand, not just a logo or website. For example, we show that a logo like the one created for Handcraft Kitchen is not only built to be executed on a web page, but how those elements are conveyed through menu design and exterior signage. This is the full-circle design that Oblique thrives on.

2016 offered opportunity for Oblique to build several brands from scratch. One of our favorites, “BOOM Properties”, was especially unique because this client wanted to push all boundaries when it came to creative solutions. From naming their company, designing their logo, tagline and stationery, all the way to a fully functional responsive website, BOOM is just one of the many satisfying accomplishments we encountered last year. Check it out in our (new!) portfolio here.

Alongside BOOM, some other companies we created identities for were CUE, CONGRUEX and Clove Hill. These all started without a name or identity and are now developed, mature brands ready to take on the world. Other 2016 highlights included designing a new product catalog and beautiful Comuni-tee apparel for “Women’s Bean Project”, as well as working with Gro.io and Coadria to build two beautiful and unique tech-based websites. We also created packaging for Clove Hill’s skin-care lines, Love the Wild, Biozen Skincare and Power Plant. We even helped League Collegiate Outfitters celebrate their 25-year anniversary by giving their website a new and timeless look. Be sure to check out all of this and even more on our portfolio page!

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank every single person, client and company that we interacted with in 2016. We cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store in the future!
