What do an architecture firm, a law practice and a renewable energy company have in common? They all have a fresh new face to share with the world. The Oblique team has been busy these past few months rebranding and designing websites for DTJ Design; Garlington, Lohn & Robinson; and Able Grid Energy. We love that we have such a diverse client roster, because it pushes our team to take on new challenges and design within different realms on a daily basis. Read on to find out  how they’ve pushed us to think outside the box.

I’m Bennett Wantz, Oblique Design’s most recent intern and now a junior designer. I’m a senior at CU Boulder majoring in Media Design. I came to CU unsure of what I wanted to do. I have always been very creative and when I was younger I was more interested in arts and crafts than what football game was on. So when I came to CU I figured I should try media design. Almost instantly I knew I made the right choice. I fell in love with designing logos, packaging and typography.

This past summer I made it my goal to get an internship at a design/advertising agency. I spent a lot of time searching online and weighing the opportunities that were out there. I came upon Oblique and instantly knew that this was a place I wanted to work. I took a shot in the dark and emailed them with my resume and website attached. They must have liked what they saw, because the next day I received an email inviting me in for an interview.

Cannabis infused lotions and oils are not new to Coloradans, but CAUSE+MEDIC needed Oblique Design’s help to create a cosmetic packaging design concept which shows they aren’t your average cannabis skincare product.   (more…)

The passing of a loved one is the most difficult thing we deal with in life. It’s never easy to talk about, let alone plan for. But because funeral planning is often costly and complex, many opt to start thinking about it in advance.

This is especially true in Hong Kong—as the limited area and high population density mean that securing memorial space can often take years. One solution that many in Hong Kong are opting for is to look to mainland China, or even the US, for a secure and beautiful final resting place.

Our client NorthStar Memorial Group is now helping many in Hong Kong by offering a better option, and we’ve helped their efforts by designing marketing materials for Hong Kong markets and launching a new website.

San Francisco native. Media Design Major. And now, Oblique intern. These are three things that define me. So how did I get here? Boulder has always had my heart since I was a little girl. My Grandpa and Grandma met here way back when Robert Redford worked at The Sink. When I applied to CU I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do or if I should pursue Graphic Design because the major was unestablished. However, when considering other options nothing got me as excited as art, advertising, and design. I’ve always been the one to pick a product based on the packaging/logo. (more…)
