Locavores ad campaign

If there’s anything we love as much as building a really great logo, it’s implementing that logo and the understanding we’ve cultivated about the brand into additional useful elements for our clients. The more ways your audience can interact with you, the better they’ll get to know your brand. We like helping shape that interaction into a meaningful one. We partnered with Locavores, a fast-casual restaurant in Alamosa, Colo., to create their brand a few years ago. We helped them…

Omaha Shirt Project:
Areas of Omaha

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Oxide Design Co. loves Omaha and our neighborhoods. In late 2016, we launched Omaha Shirt Project: t-shirts we designed to help others who also love these communities show off their pride and support their neighborhood associations. In the ensuing 18 months, the original 12 shirts grew to 18 and the project has enabled us to donate over $4,000 to neighborhoods across the city. To commemorate the success of the Omaha Shirt Project, we…

The Strawhecker Group website

Recently Oxide completed work for The Strawhecker Group (TSG), an Omaha-based consulting firm who provide advisory services for financial institutions from fintech startups to Fortune 500 companies. TSG’s clean design gives content room to breath. When they reached out to Oxide, they were looking for a new website. Their previous website failed to project the level of professionalism and influence they have within their industry. It was a relic of TSG’s early days when they were a small company working…

Jibo packaging

Recently Mandy wrote about our client Jibo and how we helped them to define their brand. As a quick refresher, Jibo is billed as “the first social robot for your home” (think Alexa or Echo but with a charming personality!). In Mandy’s post, she shared some concepts for packaging that we worked on. Being big package design fans, we decided this part of the project warranted its own blog post. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy seeing some insight into the packaging…

Springbok messaging campaign

We recently partnered once again with Springbok Instruments, a company that makes innovative electronic test equipment for cable lines, for a messaging campaign that extended across a print brochure, a new website, and social media. This is an industry that I had never given much thought to and just taken for granted. But, whenever there’s an outage in cable lines, someone has to go out and find the problem and repair it. Springbok has been a driving force in the industry…

Jibo branding

It’s not every day that one of our partners gets named to TIME Magazine’s list of top 25 inventions of the year, so we were pretty stoked to see Jibo’s familiar face looking out at us from the magazine racks at the grocery store. Jibo is a social robot developed with the intention of true artificial intelligence. Unlike other similar smart devices, Jibo can initiate conversation. He has his own taste in music, but he learns the kinds of music…

Danner For Nebraska website

Recently Mandy Mowers wrote a blog post about the work Oxide has done for Spencer Danner’s campaign for Nebraska’s Secretary of State. Much like Spencer himself, we’ve put a lot of energy and excitement behind the work we’ve done on this campaign to this point. The one aspect of the campaign material I’ve worked on most is the campaign website. Generally, we build websites on top of WordPress. It’s very flexible and simple for clients to update when we hand…

Museum of Danish America core exhibits

The Museum of Danish America, located in Elk Horn, Iowa, is dedicated to the preservation of Danish immigrant heritage in the United States. Housed in a beautiful timber-framed building reminiscent of traditional Danish architecture, the museum provides a glimpse into Danish-American culture and traditions through traveling exhibitions and permanent displays. We recently had the pleasure of partnering with this long-time Oxide client on a new project. The museum was in the middle of shuffling their layout and needed help designing and…

Spencer Danner branding

Spencer Danner announced today that he’s running for Nebraska’s Secretary of State. We have been pleased to partner with Spencer to develop his branding, print materials, and website. Across his brand we have infused energy and excitement, because that’s who Spencer is and what he’ll bring to this office. Spencer is not your traditional political candidate, so his brand isn’t a traditional political campaign. Oxide always looks to develop branding and design that is appropriate to the project and the…

Protect the Vote poster

Last month, Oxide contributed to a poster show held by Civic Nebraska (formerly Nebraskans for Civic Reform). The show raised money to support the organization’s voting rights efforts. Civic Nebraska is part of a larger group of advocates in Nebraska and nationwide, working hard every day to improve our democracy. This includes, but is not limited to, efforts to prevent new barriers from being created, advocating for increased accessibility to the polls, and pursuing policies to modernize our voting system. Voting…
