We are a Design and Branding Agency

Craft typography

We really enjoy being able to work on craft brands like this one for Mike Larraneta of Larraneta & Co. Mike is a local custom homebuilder and wanted a visual identity for his business that communicated the craftsmanship and level detail that is evident in his work and also his business practices. As part of a Brand Discovery, Studio Absolute learned that Larraneta’s clients found his work as exceptional and that he made the complex process of building a custom home enjoyable by managing timelines, materials, sub contractors and budget. We feel the new Larraneta visual brand summarizes this very well.

Photography in design

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

by Russ McIntosh, Studio Absolute Creative Director + Designer

As a branding agency, we have daily exposure to rockstar entrepreneurs and their innovative new ideas, products and services. Andrew Glanz of Campaign Furniture Company is one of these entrepreneurs who’s gorgeous product and cool demeanor demands some serious kudos.

Andy approached Studio Absolute to photograph his latest collection of custom designed and hand-crafted furniture. There are few people in this world who’s calling in life perfectly aligns with what they actually wind up doing. Andy is one of those people. His attentiveness to the natural curves in each unique piece of wood make the highest quality factory-built furniture seem bland and template driven.

While this particular shoot was for archival purposes, Andy’s exposure with Dwell magazine and his latest commissioned project for Disney World has the Campaign Furniture Company slated for national brand recognition.

Quality, professional photography is invaluable in extending an accurate and meaningful brand experience. We are privileged to work with clients in tourism, hospitality, and manufacturing; these sectors in particular use photography to encourage potential customers to connect with the brand on a deeper emotional level.

We value quality photography and are always excited to be able to use our own images in our design layouts. To see other projects where we’ve incorporated photography to communicate the brand promise, visit our online website design portfolio.

I predict the sweet campaign chair featured below and its matching companion will be accompanying us on several camping trips this summer.

Studio Absolute helps the Advertising Federation of Central Oregon with new online look

Thursday, August 19, 2010

When Studio Absolute was approached to redesign the AdFed of Central Oregon website, we were excited for the opportunity to create an online experience that we would enjoy using regularly as AdFed members ourselves. Our motivation for donating the design was admittedly selfish knowing it would make our lives easier in the long run.

Central Oregon boasts an impressive network of creative talent that has been recognized globally as having merit comparable to that of a much larger metropolitan area. We saw the AdFed website as an opportunity to showcase that talent while providing an easily navigated hub for creative resources.

Websites are increasingly the first interaction a potential new member or customer has with a company or organization. Grand assumptions about service and quality are made based on the design and ease of navigation throughout the site. If it’s a painful experience online, the visitor forms a subconscious impression that your service or product quality is equally lacking.

The crisp, clean, editorial approach to the new AdFed website delivers on the true value that AdFed of Central Oregon provides its members. It is professional, credible, and a worthwhile investment of time and membership dollars.

Thanks, AdFed for the opportunity to design the new website and for your on-going commitment to the advertising community! You can check out their new site at
