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…

Verdis Group website

As their name would suggest, Verdis Group is all about doing things green. They provide sustainability practices and solutions to large companies and organizations throughout the Omaha metro area and beyond. One thing I really appreciate about Verdis Group is their approach. Their methods aren’t green for the sake of being green; Verdis Group offers their clients methods to reduce costs while reducing their carbon footprint. It’s really a win-win for everyone. 

McCarthy Capital identity

McCarthy Capital is a private-equity firm founded in Omaha in 1986. They are a partnership of experienced investment professionals specializing in helping companies grow. McCarthy partners with entrepreneurs and businesses to provide capital, guidance, and strategic resources for long-term growth. Recently, McCarthy approached Oxide about partnering to update their identity. In this industry, trust matters — and McCarthy Capital has been a trusted name for 31 years. Their established visuals were a very important starting place and completely reinventing their…

Retreat to Kearney

Turns out Kearney, Nebraska, is a pretty fun place to visit. It probably helps when you have a stellar and experienced tour guide, like Adam Torpin. Oxide was able to take a short staff retreat last month — our first one ever! — and we finally made it out to see Adam’s new (no longer new) digs. While part of the retreat was focused on actual work, we took the opportunity for lowkey team development as we saw the sights.

Oxide featured in LogoLounge 10

With the inclusion of six logos in this most recent book,…

Thankful

The team at Oxide has a lot to be thankful for! 2017 has been a great year for us all both professionally and personally. We’d like to take a moment to share these joys with all of you. Adam I’m extremely thankful for my family. In March, my wife and I welcomed our second child, a healthy and beautiful baby boy we named Campbell. His big sister, Vivienne, could not be more in love with him. I’m thankful that Kearney,…
