Just back from San Jose

This is a teaser of the theme and design for Plantronics World Wide Sales Meeting last week. Great to see everyone, and see our design rolled out across the event.

Wells Fargo Environmental Forum redesign

It was our privilege to work with the Wells Fargo Environmental Affairs team to rethink the design of their Environmental Forum. The site recently launched and we are proud of the design and the development efforts of the whole team. There’s more to tell, but here are a quick look at the design and a link to the site

Making a call shouldn’t be confusing

Desk phones are going the way of the three-martini lunch: extinct. So it’s no surprise that people are choosing to text or message each other more. But voice is a key component of human contact, and losing the ability to hear and be heard means that people miss vital communication. The video is part of a larger campaign that OIC created for Plantronics. It is aimed at IT decision makers, presenting the case that IT has an important role to play in keeping the lines of communication open.

Why Pasadena?

From time to time people ask why, when we do so much work in the bay area, we are located in Pasadena. We helped develop this infographic with Innovate Pasadena to provide a little background on why.

Ovation, a vibrant space for the arts online

Ovation is America’s only arts network. Its mission is to connect the world to all forms of art and artistic expression. OIC’s vision for the site was to create “vibrant space for the arts online.” Everything from the site structure to the content strategy was formulated to encourage discovery across genres. On the new site, content from social channels and programming exist together in the same space. The result is a new, engaging platform that is consistent with Ovation’s vision of “Art Everywhere.”
