Film Streams website redesign

Film Streams is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the cultural environment of the Omaha-Council Bluffs area through the presentation and discussion of film as an art form. They’re located in the Ruth Sokolof Theater within the Saddle Creek Records complex in North Downtown Omaha. Oxide was able to partner with Film Streams for their branding and their original website from 2007. After eight years of using that site, Film Streams was ready for an update. Even though the site…



Boston Rams identity

Oxide is proud to unveil our rebrand for the Boston Rams. The Rams compete in in various divisions at the youth level and are an affiliate of Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution. Formerly known as Real Boston Rams Soccer Club, the team decided to simplify their name by dropping “Real” and “SC” from their official title. Removing Real, which is Spanish for royal, made the crown in the original logo no longer appropriate. The new logo is a euro-inspired…

This year we proudly partnered with the Refugee Empowerment Center as our main pro bono client. With recent world events and national controversy, we’re excited to share a little bit more information about this amazing organization and the delightful people with whom they work – refugees from around the globe. Refugees are people in flight from a desperate situation. They don’t leave their home by choice, but were compelled to seek asylum in another country because of persecution. The Refugee…

Happy Halloween 2015!

2015 marks the fourth year of serious Halloween costume participation at Oxide! One of our favorite holidays, Halloween gives us the opportunity to be creative without looking crazy. If we could dress how we feel, we just might dress like our favorite movie characters or wear a lion costume every day. From left to right: Josh as Brand (The Goonies), Adam as 1990s Fred Durst (Limp Bizkit), Drew as the Cowardly Lion (The Wizard of Oz), Mandy as Doc Brown…

This month we celebrate Oxide’s 14th anniversary! It always feels good to achieve another successful year in business, and it’s also a great time to look back at the year that’s transpired.

Mostek Law identity and website

Earlier this year, Mostek Law opened its doors. As a small and brand new firm, Mostek had a lot of room and desire for bold branding that would make them stand out. Beyond the neatly-set logotypes so common in the legal world, the Mostek team wanted an identity that would make their practice stand out and be recognized. Much of founder Mike Mostek’s work experience has been environmental law. The firm also has a great deal of experience in real…
