Oblique’s Unique Slant

Oblique Design is a Boulder branding and website design agency that looks at things from a slightly different angle. We’re a little bit off, but trust us, it’s in all the right ways.

In a world where anyone with an Instagram account can claim to be a marketing whiz, real experience matters. We are seasoned industry pros who operate under the premise that partnership and deep understanding yield the most outstanding results. With an unapologetic passion for design and strategy, we’re not here to follow trends; we’re here to set them. We dive deep to learn what makes your brand different, and then we don’t stop until everybody knows it.


Knowledge is power. The more we know about you, your brand, your dreams, vision, and goals, the better we work together and conquer the world. It’s our job to help you recalibrate and get you back out there with an injection of new inspiration.


Websites need to do more than just look pretty. We’ll make sure yours has a gale-force user experience and high-ranking SEO to boot. Even video and animation if you’re up for it.


Let’s face it, we love brands. And we can’t resist the chance to help make yours its best with logo design, naming and taglines, stationery suites and more.


Ads. Brochures. Packaging. Direct mail. Collateral. Other stuff that comes out of a printer. We design it, we write it and we coordinate the entire process from concept to completion.



Your story is our inspiration. There’s really no other way to put it. So the more we know about you, your organization, your pain points, your vision, your goals, and your competition, the more powerful and prominent we can make your position in the great wide world of brands.

Whether you’re a spanking-new start-up trying to get your name out there for the first time, or an established brand that’s just become a little tired in the space, we are here and happy to help. The Oblique team will guide you as you discover your unique difference or hit the refresh button to reposition your business with an injection of new inspiration—not to mention a workable plan.

Oblique is big on giving back to the people, places and non-profits that we care about—especially in our local area. That’s why we started the Oblique CommuniTee Program. We obviously dig doing design, so we figured: why not put our passion to use to help charitable organizations thrive with cool custom tees?

You Profit
Non-profits can send us an email telling us why they should become a selected CommuniTee member. Or heck, we also just choose some that are near and dear to our team.
You tell us what you stand for and we’ll slap that masterpiece onto some bomb threads so your employees, donors and supporters can wear your message with pride and great design. We love options, so we’ll present you with multiple concepts and it’s up to you whether you want to choose your favorite or put it to a vote, allowing your community to get involved.
Once you’ve selected the design you love, it’s time to turn this gem into a cash cow. We’ll eagerly help you promote your new swag on our website, blog and social media channels. That’s called putting good design to work.
While we’re always proud to put our design babies out into the world, we’re especially proud when they do good. You can decide where the proceeds earned from our CommuniTee program will make the greatest impact. We won’t take any of that cash, just give us some warm fuzzies and let us know how our designs have made a difference.
