Locavores branding

With a wealth of diverse business experience and a healthy measure of rolling-up-their-sleeves-and-get-things-done-ness, Wendi and Matt Seger set out on a new adventure: opening a restaurant in their hometown of Alamosa, Colorado.



Stand For Schools identity

Recently we’ve had the opportunity to work on creating a complete corporate identity and a website for Stand For Schools, an organization working to advance public education in Nebraska.



50,000 words in 30 days

There’s this thing called NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) that some crazy writers participate in every November. The goal is to write a novel in one month — 50,000 words in 30 days. This year, I participated. That comes down to 1,667 words a day, but you can pace yourself however you like. The idea is quantity over quality. Nano pushes you to just keep moving, beyond the doubts and the questions and the writers blocks that come up. And…



Civic design isn’t sexy

Civic design is about equality and accessibility. In its election- and ballot-design forms, it’s about trying to ensure that votes get cast as they were intended by the voter. It’s unbiased and non-partisan — because bad ballot design affects all voters. At its core, civic design is an attempt to communicate flawlessly using language and design so that democracy is upheld.



Omaha Shirt Project

Oxide Design Co. loves Omaha and our neighborhoods. So we designed t-shirts to help others who also love these communities show off their pride and support their neighborhood associations. Omaha Shirt Project features 12 shirts and will run for the month of October, and we’re donating $5 per purchase to the neighborhood association or organization affiliated with each shirt. The one catch is that only shirts receiving 10 pre-orders by 31 October 2016 will be printed! (Orders on a shirt that…



Hotsy Equipment Co. website

Every now and then, a dream comes true. For us, it was getting to work with Hotsy Equipment Co. and come face to face with one of our greatest collective fascinations: pressure washers.



2016 Get Out The Vote poster

Oxide was delighted to participate in 2016’s Get Out The Vote, a nonpartisan campaign hosted by AIGA every four years to encourage graphic designers to use their talents to motivate the American public to get out there and vote. This year’s program is presented in partnership with the League of Women Voters‘ Vote 411 initiative.



St. Luke UMC website

We recently launched a new website for St. Luke United Methodist Church. Since St. Luke’s needs for the site were fairly straightforward, we talked with them about utilizing a pre-existing professional WordPress template, and then customizing it to their specific needs. We like to use this hybrid solution when it will work best for our clients, allowing us to use a core of pre-built code elements to create the site more efficiently, and to keep costs as low as possible.



Blackstone Union / Blackstone Station branding

As neighbors, we’re excited to see how the Blackstone District is steadily being revitalized. One of the main companies behind this rejuvenation is GreenSlate Development. One of the really cool things that GreenSlate is doing is preserving as much of the historic structure of the neighborhood as possible. They are striving to renovate existing buildings whenever possible, and when they are building new, they do so with an eye toward the historic aesthetic.



Moylan Kropp rebranding

Do you ever work with a client and enjoy them so much that you decide to become a client of theirs? That’s what happened for me when Oxide got to partner with Moylan Kropp on a rebrand for their comprehensive financial planning firm. The “comprehensive” part of this line means that not only do they know all about finance, but also have a well-rounded team, able to provide tax and legal expertise. The team is made up of three brothers,…
