Oblique teams up with Drywall Partitions, a Denver based drywall construction firm, for a website remodel.  Bringing a modern twist to their industry, Oblique designed a website that brings out the true personality of DPI.  Take a look for yourself – We’ve never seen drywall look so good!


It’s been a wild ride as Oblique Design celebrates an exciting milestone this month.  Ten years have passed since Janice Ferrante first opened the doors to her design agency as a one-woman shop ready to take on the competitive graphic design world.

A lot has changed since that time.  The internet space has disrupted and simultaneously launched a new way of thinking about marketing.  A new level of consumer and client engagement has been introduced via both the Web and the advent of social media.  And through it all, Oblique has found creative solutions to mixing traditional design with these new platforms in advertising… all while keeping in perspective that it’s still a people-first industry.

For those of us that have had the pleasure to work with the Oblique team, it’s definitely taken more than just charm, charisma and luck to get this far.  Consistently excellent client service, a tireless work ethic, fervent dedication to their trade, and unmatched creative design talent has paced Oblique for the last 10 years.  It’s this same commitment to excellence that will certainly lead to continued growth and success in this competitive arena.

Speaking for all previous and current clients, friends and your extended family here in Boulder… congrats on a job-well-done, Oblique!  Keep the “Wow!” factor coming and here’s to the NEXT 10 years!


Check out the selected designs and taglines for BlueTree and their main services – MultiMinder and MultiMessaging. Next on the “to-do” list: Websites, landing pages and videos for all three. Time to get to work!


We are excited to announce the latest addition to Oblique’s client roster: I-Behavior. Oblique was selected to brand the digital sector of I-Behavior.

Great talent, witty material and sexy cars…What a way to spend the weekend. Oblique, Futuristic and MINI USA filmed three videos for their Value Service Program this Sunday at the MINI of Loveland. We’re eager to see the outcome. Stay tuned for online debut!

We have the pleasure of working with a great group of talented software engineers that have built a powerful, rich automated voice messaging solution. BlueTree provides voice messaging services in two distinct offerings: Appointment Reminders and Group Messaging.

The scope includes everything from re-branding to website designs. Watch out for the progression of new logos on the way.
