Janice Ferrante // Owner + Creative Director

I believe that my best designs come from curiosity, connection, and collaboration. This provides an undeniable truth and the way to creative living.

With over 30 years of design experience, I’m a seasoned brand builder who has the skills and scars to prove it. I pride myself in understanding your brand’s challenges, devising strategic solutions and delivering kick-ass design. I have a systematic approach and thrive on collaboration. And guess what, I’m full of honesty and boundless energy.

As the Founder and Creative Director of Oblique Design for 20+ years, I have a deep understanding of the fabric of agency life. Currently dividing my time between Boulder, CO, and Santa Barbara, CA, I’ve overseen teams of up to 15 employees. Whether you’re tackling a big project requiring a seasoned team or you have a one-person task, I’ve got you covered.

Before Oblique, I learned the ins and outs of mastering the intricacies of running creative design agencies in NYC and NJ. I was a Senior Art Director for some of the world’s most recognized brands including Sony, HBO, Pfizer, Nickelodeon, Fox News, Ricola, PSE&G, and AT&T.

I’m a lifelong learner and an ardent traveler who integrates international influence into my bold designs. When I’m not standing at my desk, you can find me buzzing around on my Vespa, blazing mountain bike trails, practicing yoga, or feeding my diehard fixation with pickleball.
